BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986
“Love Is the Drug” is a 1975 song originally recorded by English band Roxy Music.
Grace Jones recorded “Love Is the Drug” on her Warm Leatherette album from 1980. The track was released as the second single, following “A Rolling Stone” in the UK while it was the first single to be released in Germany. After failing to chart in 1980, a remix of the Grace Jones version was released in 1986 following the 1985 compilation Island Life and then became a minor hit in the UK, peaking at no. 35. Music video was produced for the 1986 remix and directed by Matt Forrest and Bruno Tilley.
