The Top Ten
A song in English (she) and French (he). His voice makes the song sound sexy. - Metal_Treasure
Of course, I didn't see this list earlier! Beau travail (as usual), Metal_Treasure!
This song is beautiful, Bashung had a really sexy voice and was a great artist. - Lotuscandy
It's a cover of a 1936 song, Gainsbourg's male voice singing the lyrics made famous by Edith Piaf gave the song a strong homoerotic undertone. This new version of "Mon légionnaire" released in 1987 was a hit on French dance floors, both gay and heterosexual. - Lotuscandy
Written by Serge Gainsbourg and first recorded in 1966 by France Gall, it was an unusually risqué song for its time.
On the surface, it's a yé-yé style song about a girl named Annie who likes aniseed-flavoured lollipops, but Gainsbourg's lyric also contains playful double meanings referring to oral sex, such as a line about barley sugar running down Annie's throat. The very noun for lollypop in French, "sucette", is the substantivised verb "sucer", sucking - so that the title and the refrain (Annie aime les sucettes) are far more evocative in French than in the English translation. The song also features a direct double entendre, stating that Annie has lollipops "pour quelques pennies" (for a few pennies), which can also be heard as "pour quelques pénis" (for a few penises).
Gall, aged 18, did not understand the double meaning of the song when she recorded it. By Gall's account she did not realize until later why the filming of the clip attracted so many visitors to the set. ...more - Lotuscandy
In 1990, Serge Gainsbourg wrote the lyrics for Vanessa Paradis's 2nd album, from which this song is a single. It will be his last artistic testimony, before his death, nine months after the release of the record. - Lotuscandy
As often with Bashung this song has a double meaning, the first one is obvious (= my small business), the second, more subtle, is that he talks about "his" little business (his penis). - Lotuscandy
It's a duet with Zazie. - Lotuscandy
Gainsbourg also wrote this song for Adjani. - Lotuscandy
Also written by Serge Gainsbourg, the song and Bardot on her Harley Davidson became cult! - Lotuscandy
One of my mom's favorites!
And yes, the sample is a karaoke version, without his incredible voice... I reported it! - Lotuscandy
It's from her first album, she was 15 at the time. I was a bit younger, loved the song, it probably contributed to my fascination for Marilyn. - Lotuscandy
The line "Je l'ai rêvée si fort que les draps s'en souviennent" (= I dreamed about her so strongly that the sheets remember it), is priceless. - Lotuscandy
