Serge Gainsbourg and how he influences many things.

Serge Gainsbourg is probably my all time musical hero. Although there has been an increased awareness of his music over the past decade or so due to the Internet, not all people know his work. I share his music whenever I can and the music / pop culture products he has influenced either directly or indirectly.

Brett and Jemaine of Flight of the Conchords were surely influenced.

I like this update of Serge’s song “Je T’aime… Moi Non Plus.” It’s a great update of the song and Serge’s Melody Nelson videos.

Serge loved to write songs for female singers. This one was for France Gall.

April March redid “Laisse Tomber Les Filles” in French and English. The English version is known as “Chick Habit” for which March wrote the lyrics. You may recognize the song from the film “Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof”.

The Flashbulb has the most modern rendition with this. It is also quite spirited.
