"I think you look at the fact that tina turner is not in as a solo artist. You look at the fact that respect for her type of innovation is severely lacking in this institution and and so. I don't think that there is a time i mean. I think that people could make a case for her. I could see some people who are currently on the nominating committee. Putting her name out there. I could even see her. Possibly getting on the ballot. But i don't think that she could get in based on the current voting body even if she got on the ballot. That just says a lot about where we're at. It's a hard time out there and that. That's just what i think. So okay. Daphne what do you think should she will she. And if so one should she absolutely if twenty twenty has taught us anything and it's taught as many things of those many many things. It's that grace. Jones had been iraq roll hall of fame. We'll she. I could a scenario similar to but it just depends on again. This is this is how you know legacy admissions works in my part of the world in university culture but the scenario would be joan jett performs the induction concert for nirvana and and dave very strategically got her nominated answer next the very next year i mean and that was that was a brilliant move for a variety of reasons famously of course because they had all women covering iran taking on kurt's vocals so it would have to be something like that but i mean i do think that grace's similar to joan in the sense that beyond i love rock and roll. You know joan absolutely belongs to the rock hall of fame but it's not our heads. That are the reason washing. She should be there. People care about her. It's what she burnt. And actually i think that grace exceeds jono wanna hit them against each other but in terms of the rain shows innovation in terms of her entire performance. Aesthetic insists much more patience and a different kind of edgy rather than edgier. I will say that seems to matter in rock and roll culture. So yeah and you definitely see grace jones in the artists of now way more than you see joan jett very much so and again. I don't wanna take down my girl. John who held up the feminist tone when chrissy totally broke our hearts so but yeah i mean the resonances of what grace jones has done over. The core of her career are felton. All aspects of pop now. And that's transformative so who's gonna be. He's gonna take on the the dave and chris raw to push her forward. It's hard because to go back to the legacy trope it would require another artist to is closely aligned with grace or grace's palpably meaningful to them to make that kind of case. I'm not sure. Janet is going to be the person to do that right. And we've talked before about you know grace's not friends with a lot of the people sit -fluenced now but you need a good white ally like i keep going back to. It's just than just the fifth anniversary of his death. But the great david boy or prince both of whom. I'm working on an anthology of their of their careers. Through beautiful says people wrote for conference that. I held at yale a year after they passed. That's coming but you know we really talk about them. Being allies two women especially women of color they also had also dally katie asians. Ask us but in terms of identifying black women artists as being influences you know there are some of the biggest male superstars who just on category quickly went to the map you know krantz at the bt tribute ceremonies had all women performing patti labelle. When she gets to the point of taken off her shoes right..

"A complicated and let's say not intimate kind of voicing so i'm thinking of everybody from bowie to pop right and that actually is important in terms of innovation because it rejects the kinds of presumptions. That black woman vocalists are supposed to always make you feel good and be a few sieve in really electrifying ways like aretha which is so important but grace jones exploded the kinds of paradigm in which we understand black women to be vocalist and pop and rock and roll. I mean her. Visual act is just extraordinary. I mean we could talk about costumes. We could talk about massacre Cook masks pre covid just the ways mass important not just this was like a you know such a big part of her stage routine especially in the The post comeback world in which she used masking and also just hold couture. And we didn't talk about. This is something i forgot. I just wanna flag christie's set early on the fact that she starts as a model. I think there's a stigma attached to that. Unless you're debbie harry a really problematic stigma stigma problematic but she kind of subverted. The spectacle of Tour it became a part of the danger that she was able to perform an stylize and that ties us to pumpkin. Vivienne westwood in all of that. So all of those pieces and elements put together. Give you this really explosive repertoire. Allah bowie. i mean. I really do think. She's as awful and as innovative as bowie in that we think of sly and robbie as her brian eno and you just imagine if she'd been a dude a white dude. Oh wait i can. Because that'd be david bowie. Yeah thank god make rest. He would say as well since he was a huge champion of blackman's artistry. Absolutely all right. So we're we've made it to our final category. Maybe the most important category which is does. My mom know who they are. And my mom absolutely did. And like we said it's. She's kind of a ubiquitous cultural icon. I don't take my mom could name any songs but like absolutely with that like without hesitation was like. Oh yeah for sure grace jones i think yes she just. She has permeated the culture. You know whether. It's through being in one of the conan movies with arnold schwarzenegger or whether it's the music or the appearances on tv in whatever. She's she's a living legend. I think she really is. I literally just talked. Said grace jones question mark and she said oh yeah. That's very much a my mother. Answer and i guarantee you she. It's like yeah. She's a ubiquitous figure. She is someone that everyone knows of. And i do say that the popularity of like drag race and kind of kind of queer and drag and drudge. Culture has raised her profile in a way as well made her more of like someone that you would wanna go back and look into. It certainly been the case for me. You know i'm like oh. Yeah i'd love to know more about This very interesting and intriguing person and also a thing that we haven't really touched on just yet is that she still alive. Which i think is very we like that. She's still alive. We be having this station while she's still alive and let's flag that sophie fines raise funds sisters fantastic filmmaker made a marvelous documentary about grace jones. I think it's brilliant..

"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.

So at steady I go caught. Your IRA goes kind of like talking back. Awesome. A Journal. We like to ask the question. When was the moment that you realized that Grace Joan was. ICONIC, when was the moment that she sort of like clung to you as an icon I think I was maybe twelve or thirteen when I saw her a video for module Bacon Guy. And this is right around the town where I discovered MTV when MTV used to play music videos and that was like one of the first music videos I had seen she was like the black woman I had ever seen on TV as she was just like so different that I was like, who is this I remember? Feeling like electrified, seeing her for the first time in like doing my own research to find out who the fuck is as broad and as you know as I learn more about her like you have when you're a teenager, you're like bit. I'm going to be like this person like she was the person. But me for a long time I just never seen anything like her, which is what I feel like everyone felt at that time. Not, that's because she was out. Previous when I seen her but I'm sure when she arrived you know. WHO and Ed? So not to go. Yeah. So that's the answer to that question. I keep going. Now I was GONNA say another skip end but also I wanNA and has been maintaining it. She's still grace. Yeah like she's like What is she in her eighties? Now she's in her early seventies now. Yeah. Still think that's she looks incredible. Still she like it still has the attitude lake right in is in a thing that I felt I'm sure a lot of people at the time thought was a character but now at seventy, we see that effort. Like she, he'll grace zones so. I love it. I love her. I I don't stay in many people and. Grace Jones like I'll. Definitely. I think it's. Cool to Stan Grace Jones. But precisely because it's like not a character, it's like because like, oh, no, this is really she really is like. This bitch like that is completely. She dated like the finest motherfuckers is in it. She just had this persona of year. Like yeah, I'm dating these guys but. At who? Don't look at them. That he's a purse. Came or identity that she was dating somebody or whoever she was Dayton at a time. So Yan as. And black signifying not only blacks but Africa's. In the eighties in the early, all the way I mean is still too now but nineties it was such A. You know as where I grew up such a it was a insult to say, Oh, you're from Africa. Africa. That wasn't long ago you know. So for her to be an, you know from the island. So at that time I still had an accent and the for her to be so fucking black Jamaican angled drowsiness. Man Eater fucking top bitchy was slapping people on TV outside God down like best. Sees this you know. So she kinda got me through middle and high school to a little bit sir. Knowing that she exists. Rules we had like Sydney Washington came on and talked about Naomi. Campbell who was also somebody. I went back and forth. Yes we're back foot. There's. Like. Also my boss and Barbados and Gino like you're from islands and like you know there's something just about like Jamaican him. Sense of self. Saying. That Jamaican. Attitude of like, what are you GONNA do?.

"Kill back that was. That's that's that's all seven that's That's rice giants. That's portfolio portfolio by Grace Jones. I mean yeah I loved it. I thought it was brilliant. I mean what's your favorite track on it. Though it's going to be there has to send in the clowns which I mean. I would've loved to apply to be. I was just smitten. Talking about that song still decide that actually wants to play a little bit of it and I've actually got written down. He played. I didn't actually put a time stamp on it but Hopefully run better on the tune from the backing but that that is definitely is like I said before. It's a song on keep coming back to. That's my that's my favorite song on the right way to kick start at kicks off. I mean what a why to start a career debut song extending the clowns. I think it's I think she's done done a great job there. I should say I struggled with this big time like I I could have picked four songs comfortably but I think I think for me the the the best song in this album for each track full navien rose her. Take on Vm. Rose I think he's pretty pretty spectacular But very very close second was tomorrow. Tomorrow's while I think that's I think that's pretty good for me. Living Rose IRA wants to song when I was down at the backyard. Jural titles code rose tinted glasses after I think it was Taryn. One of my goals with rose tinted glasses. Maybe Grayson are on the same page there. I've I've genuinely got written down here like when in my notes here and I didn't mention it. Levin Rose License Happy Lenses not to be confused with TD's two thousand. Three critical flop rose tinted glasses. Which which is a song that you did right. It was a girl that you would date in best ball good friend of the next go for mine when she and she proper stitched you up so you put some you perfume lyrics on paper. You gotta own stuff like that people say stuff. I think I think it's a great truck when the prices but it was it was not fair. It wasn't a bad song of some of the Shit that you were trying to kind of put out at that time. It wasn't a bad little number. You you saw singing to me one hundred to stick guitar. After by nineteen Biz funding. Nothing Big Greg. Some spokesman at you yes I coat yet not to be confused with your classic on so therefore what's your shits on this album on for the second week running second week running. I am going with a song on the first half of the album on gone with track to what I did for love mainly look in saying that man. Sign not as well like you said. It's a hod so hot album to choose. She'd song because at seven tracks. I think this is the beauty of those artists. That just say no.

Traffic's which is one of the two she wrote Again it's the song itself is totally fine. But if I if I have to pull out one and been betrayed six You know it fits in really nicely into it I I. It's the album. I did say you know it feels like another Broadway musical because it stands alone from the first three songs. It gets my vote because it's slightly. It's slightly separate from that but so yeah track six. That's the trouble from a really look that song from the seventy s and see. I said I'd love to know.

It sounds like you're in a French. Bistro Sigmund Freud sitting across from sucking on his pipe. little girl leaning against the Pan. I was getting delivered to a table. Why GETS IT?

Something quintessentially like nine forty on entities Paris and I think only covered because she spend a few years you know Strutting the catwalk of Yves Saint Laurent and other very fashionable other. Well known fashion houses in Paris. I spent a bit of Tommy powers. That are actually no washy. Shut why she signed his bed. I'm pretty sure this is one of the first songs that she recorded. It's but it literally does sound like I'm it transported a power. It's it's probably her most well-known Song. It's quite a a well-known deconstruction. What is a little bit about your mom used to quite like? She was a French singer. Copyright the formula essentially kind of got lost in a world of drink and drugs and stuff and but she was kinda absolutely. Judy garland sort of personal. You know they got on stage and you could either get you know an incredible performance so you could get some sort of drunk woman. Bumbling and mumbling breakthrough performance and stuff. So le`veon's rose also the movie a few years ago. Marian played in the movie. And it's a very very good moving Mughal skit for actually vehicle. Levy Levy on Rose Yanshan. She plays. Pf Right. I think was also played by mcdonagh written by twenty-five I'm turning dares was in a way. It was okay she actually. She was surprising. The funding Marion coupons was the one that she won the Oscar for. I'm a new type via a new song and it saw roughly translates the light. Seen through hoppy lenses. I'm an yeah. It's a great honor and there's a particular part the end the Finals Minneapolis Song. She just screamed Levy on rose in. Us clear I. E kind of is this crescendo. To you want your words at the back end of the song and and and I think it's an amazing take on it but if I'm honest if I hadn't if I didn't know this song or heard for this probably wouldn't write it that much. I just it's just because I know the Ridge. It's such a a an interesting deconstruction green tea and and yeah probably most famous song. Great certainly the one that that seems to take the bills. When you're when you're doing your homework on it's different. I mean it's the second longest song on the album instrumental until about two minutes. So neutrally just Just just backing until then and then crisis odds to Gary Marker Fine You are right great. Finish to the track. I think the last minute also is unbelievable the But Yeah Great.

As far as I'm concerned like a banner of achieve not yeah you get it to track five. Sorry I've got it here is a tier I saw. I love it. It was a second single released before her international breakthrough. So why are really lucked? This is actually. This is one of the two songs that are on this On this album or on the Second Sword actually written by Grace Jain are are done of any other notes on apart from society right so I think I just really enjoy listening to it. Yeah it's kind of but it's a good song Yeah she co Rotor. I say a row is stopped. A little bit dreamlike Like field for me. The opening kind of refrain sounds. Let identify of this in my mind. But some Sitcom some seventies Wade Sitcom like Cagney and Lacey. I think they were actually but that contest but it bubbles through. It's quite an apologetic number. That being jealous and and You know kind of relationship dynamic Misunderstanding between but yeah. It's it's it's a good tune I like it.
