"Love Bites" is a 1996 song by Grace Jones.

Background[edit]

"Love Bites" is an uptempo electronic track. Jones sings the song from the perspective of a vampire, perhaps alluding to the theme of her 1986 feature film Vamp. The song was released as a non-label promo-only single to promote the Sci-Fi Channel's Vampire Week, which consisted of a series of vampire-themed films aired on the channel in early November 1996.[1] As the song was released for a promotional use only, and was not commercially available, it did not chart, and has not been since included on any Grace Jones hits compilations.

Music video[edit]

A music video was supposedly filmed, but has yet to surface. It sees Jones wearing a blonde wig, and then changing wigs and costumes a number of times.[2]
