Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire De Melody Nelson

Serge was the sleazy French dude who wrote hit songs about blowjobs and about banging his daughter, i.e, the chick from the shitty Gondry movie Science of Sleep. He also told Whitney Houston he wanted to fuck her on live television. Calling him outspoken is an understatement.

Here he makes an album about accidentally hitting a teenage nymphomaniac with his car, fucking her in a hotel, then celebrating her death in a plane crash because their love will be preserved forever. Seriously that's what it's about. At least that's what I read since I don't speak French.

It's also a masterpiece.
