I've Seen that Strange Face Before on My Halloween Countdown
Grace Jones. Halloween. 'Nuff said?
Ms Jones is scary. With her, Halloween is 365 days a year. "I've Seen that Face Before (Libertango)" is haunting, suave, moody; much like Grace herself.
My favorite Grace story from a few years back: She had sublet an apartment in a very exclusive London residence. The owners sued her for damages whence they returned. Among the complaints: spoons from their good sterling silverware were burnt and damaged "as if held over an open flame."
Grace's manager replied: "That's ridiculous! If Grace wanted to sterilize the spoons, she'd use the dishwasher like everyone else."
Scary. Grace Jones. Halloween.
