“Love Bites” is a UK promo-only single recorded by Jamaican singer Grace Jones to promote the Sci-Fi Channel’s Vampire Week from 4-9th November 1996, which consisted of a series of vampire-themed films aired on the channel. Jones sings the song from the perspective of a vampire, perhaps alluding to the theme of her 1986 feature film Vamp.

    Interesting find Paul. Can’t recall hearing this ever before, but I think the song was good enough to get a commercial release, the mixes were just right for 1996. Why wouldn’t
    they list producers or remixers? Maybe the Sci-Fi Channel had no idea that they should credit them on the sleeve or the remixes were done by an unknown producer who tried to mimic some of his famous colleges. But the mixes sound very well made, so I’ll just take a guess with a few names.
    Fright Night Mix sounds like Todd Terrys work. It’s very similar to Everything But The Girl – Missing (Todd Terry Remix)
    Dark Night Mix could be by Underworld. Sounds very like Underworlds Born Slippy.
    Deep Into The Night Mix maybe by Way Out West or Moby. If someone finds some info let us know. However, another intriguing day at BTG.

    Those are some good remixer names Davos. Will let you know if I find out who mixed the tracks 🙂

    Hi Paul, another great post! Grace Jones is THE best!!! I knew that I had this song already, but will gladly download the new upgrade. Apparently the CDM promo includes 2 additional 7″ mixes, for any collectors out there who may want to try and hunt them down. Still waiting anxiously for Grace’s new album to drop. Supposedly she’s been working on it for a while now. She hinted at a possible release around this time last year, but being such a perfectionist could mean it takes another year or two before it sees the light of day. In the meantime, if anyone missed her new song from last year’s Hunger Games soundtrack, it’s definitely worth grabbing. Thanks so much, Paul! Your many Grace Jones posts have been thoroughly savoured.

    Thanks Paul. A very fun song! How random that a satellite channel would go to the effort of getting Grace Jones to record a song for a season of films they were showing. Still, worth the effort!

    Hey Paul – meant to tell you yesterday that by chance just before your post I was listening to an interview with Paul Morely (Art of Noise, ZTT, FGTH, etc…) who’s just done a book with and all about Grace Jones.

    Interview is part of Jarvis Cocker’s Sunday Service, and starts at 35.15 here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06kgz4j

    (Hope they let you listen from the US!)
