Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire De Melody Nelson
  • No we have seen and heard the Drew single/video I can't stop thinking of this album. Forget 'Je t'aime' this is Serge's master work from 1971. Before anyone says anything this is obviously not exactly like Goldfrapp in sound (it's from 1971) but i can't believe Ali and Will have not been influenced by this record in some way. Also 'Cologne Cerrone Houdini' is a bit of a giveaway that they are Serge fans!

    > Some the best strings you are going to hear on a pop record.... EVER!
    > A concept album about a girl called Melody (it involves sex as with most Gainsbourg)
    > A concept video was made for whole album (see link) NB: Jane Birkin crazy dancing may be too much for some of you :)
    > It's French!
