Bubbling under: I've seen that face before (Grace Jones)

Model/actress/Singer/Disco queen Grace Jones (image credit) was one of the most remarkable figures of the early eighties' music scene. Most of her works, including the 1981 hit album Nightclubbing, was interesting anti-punk retro-disco, but there is one track in her oeuvre that really stands out. I've seen that face before, a single release from aforementioned album, is an enchanting re-make of Libertango, a tango composed by Argentinean classical music virtuoso Astor Piazzolla, complete with a seductive bridge spoken in French.
