Serge

I love some of the songs Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin recorded in the late sixties – but I think the real Gainsbourg masterpiece of this era was when he teamed up with Brigitte Bardot in 1968 for the brilliant Bodie and Doyle single. It’s a swinging, breathy number infused with all the Bohemian jangle of the era, and still stands up as a great record today. Worth a listen if you’ve never heard it.

When I was in a marching band, we used to play a splendidly kinetic version of Gainsbourg's wonderful "Ford Mustang". The vocal lines were played by two muted trumpets, which themselves were played by mute orphans.

Those were good times they weren't all righto.
