One of my alltime favourite Disco tunes. On this one Grace Jones proves all those wrong claiming that her voice is some kind of "flat". A perfect blend of acoustic guitars, soft piano and caribbean percussions combined with the amazing, expressive vocals make a wonderful, timeless summer tune. There's also a live version of this song with an unbelievable performance by Mrs. Jones that really gives you the goosebumps. Check it out if you happen to find it!
