  1. Nice choices, Chris. I'd probably include a couple more from HURRICANE, which I'm a big fan of.

    1. @Alex Ramon: Thanks, I like her 80s stuff the most. I should give Hurricane album a second chance. Williams' Blood is a great track from that.

  2. WOW, I had never actually listened to any of her songs before. So thanks for the youtube links. I like 'Unlimited Capacity For Love' and 'Walking In The Rain' the most, I love 80s music!

    1. @Ruth: Grace Jones is a flamboyant character and put out some great songs. My favorite album of hers is 1981’s Nightclubbing. I recently discovered she released her biography last year called “I'll Never Write My Memoirs”. Thanks for checking out the list!

    2. Oh yeah, I'd imagine she'd be amazing to see live as she's got such a flamboyant personality. I might check out her memoir, she's quite a fascinating person.

      Btw, I just posted one of the most personal Music Break yet, I think you can guess what the subject is ;-)

    3. @Ruth: Seeing her live would be quite something. Better hurry because she’s 67 now and who knows how many years she’ll keep going!
      I just commented on your Joy Division music post.


What do you think about the post? I look forward to hearing from you. Rest assured I will reply soon.
