In praise of Jane and Serge

Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsburg created some of the most radical and perversely gorgeous pop songs ever recorded. The album Jane Birkin/Serge Gainsburg featured a series of duets by the infamous lovers. It was released in 1969 and included the hit, “Je t’aime…moi non plus” which achieved notoriety for its salacious lyrics with a backing of ecstatic female moaning, culminating in an apparent orgasm at the song's finale. It is a wonderful piece of shameless pop erotica and we play it all the time here at The Vampire’s Wife.

Much love, Susie x
