I actually do have that Melody Nelson record, I didn't realize it was a Serge Gainsbourg recording. I haven't spun it yet but I have it lined up for review in a couple of months.

Melody Lyrics are very important. There are inspired by the novel of Nabokov : Lolita.

The rhythmic was recorded first,then the strings, then the lyrics. It was a flop in 1971, just like "Lhomme à tête de chou" the other Gainsbourg masterpiece in 1976.

The french singer Jacques Higelin died few days ago. Jean Claude Vannier arranged that song for him and Brigitte Fontaine. One of the best french song ever written.
