grace jones - "walking in the rain" / by Zack Free

i was shocked to find out that grace hadn’t written this one herself; the “feeling like a woman, looking like a man” line is tailor-made for her brilliantly melodramatic delivery. it’s not hard to imagine grace stalking the streets in the pouring rain to the swagger of sly & robby’s iconic rhythm section. also, the synth part that weasels itself into the latter half of the song is an earworm if i’ve ever heard one
