Fame is such a great song...and movie. Need to revisit the music of Grace Jones. She was too out there for me when I was 9. Imgine that.ReplyDelete
@Wendell: Yes, Fame is a classic. The Fame movie I wasn’t so keen on except the joyous spontaneous dance sequences.Delete
That was very young! Warm Leatherette is decent but not Grace Jones’ best. I may do a top 10 of her songs this year.
I love the Fame soundtrack. That was probably one of the most brilliant 80s soundtracks. Poor Irene Cara went through so much for that soundtrack. If I recall correctly she quit music after that album b/c of how they treated her.ReplyDelete
@msmariah: That treatment of Cara sounds harsh! I’ll google her to see what happened to Irene Cara’s career. All I know is she had 80s hits from various soundtracks (Fame, Flashdance, D.C. Cab)Delete
Love the Fame mentions. My favorite from the film would be "Out Here On My Own".ReplyDelete
@Josh: Thanks for sharing your pick from Fame. Just gave it a listen again. Irene Cara’s has a beautiful voice.Delete
