It’s a little bit difficult to square my affinity for all things all American with my love for all things 1960s France. But this is my blog and I’ll make the rules here, chief.
Serge Gainsbourg got some of the most primo tail in history, despite being a dogfaced troglodyte. He was a brilliant writer, director and all around artist who parlayed (haha) this talent into scoring with some of the hottest chicks in the world, He hooked up with Anna Karina at her height and married Jane Birkin when she was 21 and he was 40. I know he was exploitative and probably not very nice, but who is? He turned into a boorish drunken lout later in life which is also not without its merits, non? Note to self: write some exceedingly catchy music, remain mysterious and brilliant and you just might score with the hottest ladies of Mod France.
