"Jones the Rhythm" is the second single from Grace Jones' album "Slave to the Rhythm", which was released in 1985.

"Jones the Rhythm" was the opening track on the album and was one of the eight variations on the "Slave to the Rhythm" theme, this one more rock-influenced and dramatic than the hit single version, featuring the Ambrosian Singers and symphonic orchestration, effectively serving as the ouverture to the audio-biography.

The song was edited for the 7" single and extended for the 12" release, both mixes remain unreleased on CD.

The B-side was the non-album track "Junkyard" - another interpretation of the same song, mainly instrumental. The title "Jones the Rhythm" had - in the spirit of ZTT Records - been used for one of the B-sides of the previous single "Slave to the Rhythm", on certain editions it was instead named "G.I. Blues".
