Music video by Grace Jones performing Love Is The Drug. (C) 1980 The Island Def Jam Music Group
"Love Is the Drug" is a 1975 single from Roxy Music (cover shown is from the 1996 4-track Rollo & Sister Bliss remix single). Taken from the album Siren it omits the gravel footstep sound effects at the start. A number two hit in the United Kingdom, it also gave the group its first substantial exposure in the United States, reaching number 30 in early 1976 on the U.S. pop singles chart and doing even better on progressive rock radio.
Grace Jones recorded "Love Is the Drug" on her Warm Leatherette album from 1980 and 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 #35.
