Grace Jones, Robbie, Miller discussed on Lost Notes
Grace jones version opens her album of the same name. Her version has a deeper group less electron. The song is driven by the sounds carved out by robbie's baseline and the small shouts of guitar swooping in and out of the music. The jones version is less haunting than miller's even in its repetition it feels sexier even detailing of horror. This is down to the magic of jones's voice the way she bends language even in a song like warm weather rhett which would demand that consisted cadence out of almost any other performing jones shouts the word warm like a horn draining. All the sounded can have a note when the word leather arrives is calm. Monotone almost inviting by the time. A song crescendo. Zippy intersection of violence and sexuality. Jones offers the image of a handbrake penetrating a thigh. Man offers up making love before death with a talent that suggests.
