Love on the beat

An exhibition of Serge Gainsbourg, controversial French singsongwriter who had a long relationship with Jane Birkin.

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.
