Never Trust a Pretty Face
Later in 1978 Lear and Monn teamed up for Never Trust a Pretty Face, an album that includes a disco reimagining of wartime classic "Lili Marleen". Lear has since re-recorded the track twice, in 1993 and 2001.
While Lear considers the best-selling Sweet Revenge her proudest moment, fans and critics rate Never Trust a Pretty Face as the artistic highpoint of her international career. It is often cited as a landmark in the history of "the sound of Munich", groundbreaking Giorgio Moroder/Donna Summer collaborations included. It was recorded in Moroder's renowned Musicland Studios with the assistance of keyboardist and composer Harold Faltermeyer and British drummer and arranger Keith Forsey, both of whom later became very successful record producers and hitmakers in the United States.
The album features a variety of genre exercises like the clever title track ballad "Never Trust a Pretty Face", shuffle rock track "Forget It", the cabaret-esque "Miroir" with both music and French lyrics by Lear, futuristic electro disco like "Black Holes" and "Intellectually" and the hit single "Fashion Pack (Studio 54)".

The lyrics to "Fashion Pack" actually ridicule the superficial world of fashion and the decadent behaviour of the rich and famous. The track is particularly critical of New York's disco glitterati, mentioning Liza (Minnelli), Francesco (Scavullo), Marisa (Berenson), (John) Travolta, Andy (Warhol), Loulou (de la Falaise), Margaux (Hemingway), Bianca (Jagger), (Yves) Saint Laurent, Paloma (Picasso) and other. According to My Life with Dalí, these were all at least acquaintances of Lear's, but by the time the song was recorded she had left her jetsetting behind, settling down for a quiet life with her husband in the French countryside near Avignon.
Another standout track was the suggestive "The Sphinx", which Lear has since named as her personal favourite among her own recordings. The promotional campaign for Never Trust a Pretty Face effectively continued to play on Lear's "devil in disguise" persona, portraying her as a mythological creature on the album cover and a giant 24"x36" fold-out poster with most European editions, smiling innocently in the Egyptian desert with beautiful angel's wings and a snake's tail. {Wikipedia}
