11 Unmissable Songs By Serge Gainsbourg

Laetitia Collier

Iconic Parisian singer and public ambassador of the French people, Serge Gainsbourg was one of France’s loudest, proudest, and most significant artists of the ’60s and ’70s. His biggest hits are characterized by cynical wit and lyrical genius, in which the artist cultivates his “provocateur” nature whilst adding a meaningful touch of sensuality. One of the greatest French musicians of the 21st century, we’ve selected a handful of his most memorable anthems.
