Grace Jones on Pee Wee’s Playhouse

12 Dec

Real talk: I only watched Pee-Wee’s Playhouse when there were no cartoons on, because I was an idiot when I was a child. I did not know Grace Jones appeared on there and sang ‘Little Drummer Boy’ and now my Saturday is complete. Please enjoy her AMAZING voice – and her intro is interesting, she’s almost got a perky ‘Marilyn Monroe’ inflection going on.

This reminded me I still need to read her autobiography! I already know she hung with Bowie and Klaus Nomi, introduced the world to Dolph Lundgren and the New York 80s club scene to Ecstasy – I’m hoping that’s just the tip of the incredible iceberg that is her life. Then again, if it was 80 pages of ‘I thought about going out but wasn’t feeling it and wound up staying in’ I wouldn’t be disappointed, because it would still be GRACE JONES doing that.


Miss Grace performing live in 2015. She is 67 years old and my hero.

Coming Up – A list of my Top Five Rando Holiday Movies, which involve Christmas but aren’t necessarily about the holiday.

You know damn well Die Hard is on that list.

Stay tuned!  😀

NOTE: I haven’t seen Krampus yet and I REALLY WANT TO. But I have my tickets for Star Wars for Thursday night!

    Looking forward to hearing if you liked Star Wars! My family and I will be seeing it a week later, with my Dad. Who is crazy excited about the new movies.

    I didn’t realize until watching that clip that I had never seen Grace Jones speak without it being part of a heavily accented film role, i.e. “Conan the Destroyer” or “Boomerang!” I do especially love her song from the “Toys” soundtrack, though.

      Yes! That song gives me goosebumps, and so many of the others from ti.
      She’s definitely doing a character here, but I think she just had a super wide range. She, her voice, her fashion, her everything are amazing!

... but what do YOU think?
