The Loves of Serge Gainsbourg
(So, for the month of March, Friday Favourites shall be include all of the women who were loved by Serge Gainsbourg...)
This Friday is dedicated to him; the man whose poetic musings and smoulding aura can still make girls the world over weak at the knees. Perhaps the sexiest and most desirable relatively unattractive man in living history. That may sound cruel, but isn't that just part of his endless charm.
The days after he died, France mourned their beloved and most important singer/songwriter, while the four women who loved him the most sat in his bedroom, with his dead body, for four days. Morbid, yes; achingly romantic, of course.
'Serge thought it vulgar that people said I love you all the time....' Ah, cynical, OH SO sexy, charming and a very good smoker.
