Du Jazz Dans Le Ravin
if you've never heard serge gainsbourg, this is the album to start with. smooth jazz. clever french lyrics, but you don't need to understand them to appreciate the music. unlike jacques brel whose intensity demands active listening, serge can play in the background for a romantic pas de deux. serge used to say that he was only alive because of dirt. his mother went for an abortion and turned around because the place was filthy. vive le dirt!
