Not sure whether it was that scene from the Harrison Ford movie "Frantic" that made me fall in love with this tune or whether it was the tune that made the scene so iconic and memorable for me. Ah, well. Who needs rhyme or reason to dig Grace Jones anyway?
Never a Grace Jones fan, but this 1981 classic is worthy of airing. It is a wonderful soft blend of Argentine tango and Jamaican reggae. The lyrics, a mix of English and French, refer to the darker side of Parisienne night life.
Tu cherches quoi?
A rencontrer la mort?
Tu te prends pour qui?
Toi aussi tu détestes la vie.
