Great talent though he was, it was the hit "Je t'Aime Moi Non Plus" that brought Gainsbourg international fame, due in large part to the orgasmic moaning of a female co-performer( Jan Birkin). He never tried to hide his unconventional tastes. Gainsbourg's lyrics were often sexual and at times morbid, but this wasn't always apparent. Double-meaning and sexual innuendo cleverly masked his true intent.
