New Wave Wednesday: "Love is the Drug", by Grace Jones (music video)

Before she was a Bond Girl in 1985's "A View to a Kill", before co-starring alongside The Governator in 1984's "Conan the Destroyer", the androgynous, glamazon/force of nature Grace Jones had a successful career as an international super model during the 70's. In the second half of the "me decade", she turned her talents to what would become a hugely successful music career, developing a loyal, international gay following.

My personal favorite is her 1980 cover of the Roxy Music classic, "Love is the Drug", from the album "Warm Leatherette".
