Love On The Beat
Beck. Air. Jarvis Cocker. Portishead. Badly Drawn Boy. Mirwais. Gruff Rhys. Exhaustive is the list of musicians who declared their (eternal) flame to Serge Gainsbourg and his album Melody Nelson.
Complete tribute to Vladimir Nabokov and literature in general, this album tells the semi-autobiographical story of Serge Gainsbourg and a nymphet in her teenage years (interprated by his muse, Jane Birkin). It's all about seducing, double meaning, loss, till her plane back home crashes at the end. Seven songs of pure and intense orgasm.
That is said, I'm for sure going to play the face B of the LP before going to bed. Because I listened to the A one before brushing my teeth. Again and again.
