    1. I've chosen Am I Ever Gonna Fall In Love In New York City as my favourite GJ song because it sounds like a disco version of a movie theme song.
    The vocal intro reminds me of other great tunes such as "On The Radio" and "From New York To L.A.".

    2. Victor Should Have Been a Jazz Musician is my second favourite. Somehow I read this title as a line from a Judith Krantz novel.
    And sometimes I wonder how this song would sound if it had been sung by Carly Simon, who had also collaborated with Nile Rodgers.


    3. La Vie En Rose
    upload_2018-3-19_10-56-48.png
    This sensual disco version (and maybe her best vocal performance ever) sounds even more "French" than the original version, also because it has an underground-y feel to it - a song that's only performed behind the closed doors of certain "decadent" establishments.

    4. Slave To The Rhythm is one of the 1980s hits that I really enjoyed, I think I've always interpreted it as Slave To The Eighties Fashion.

    5. Williams' Blood


    6. Do Or Die

    7. I'll Find My Way To You was the theme song to an Italian movie (1976) and was remade for the 1979 album "Muse", but I prefer the first version.


    8. The music for I Need A Man is written by Pierre Papadiamandis and I was going to mention that this is probably why this song has some Greek influences, but it turns out he's French. I guess it was naive to think that only the Greeks can play the bouzouki.

    9. Pull Up To The Bumper 2000

    10. On Your Knees

    That might be my favourite Grace Jones song.

    I never thought of that!
