Put some Grace in your face. Happy Thanksgiving from Disco Monk

Happy Thanksgiving and what is turkey day without putting some Grace in your face.   Every year I always give thanks for my health, family, friends, nature and Ms. Grace Jones so when the end of year holidays are here, the amazing Grace and disco icon is always on heavy rotation on my turntables.  Why you might ask? Just listen to these couple of songs and perhaps you'll hear why.  So to start you on a festive note here is "Love On Top Of Love (Killer Kiss)". This song was the first single from her 1989 album Bulletproof Heart and it was produced by C&C Music Factory's David Cole and Robert Clivilles. The song reached number one on the billboard Dance Chart in December of that year.  

Next, it's the sublime cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers classic "Breakdown" from her 1980's classic LP Warm Leatherette.  This song always seems poignant around this time of the year when we all reunite with family and love ones.
