Ballade De Melody Nelson – Song Of The Day

Melody NelsonBack in 1971, Serge Gainsbourg released his concept album Histoire De Melody Nelson along with a trippy mini movie regrouping all the songs into a sort of short 28 minute long video musical. It was experimental, sexy as hell and it included some of the artist’s best and moodiest work: the whole thing was like a very American film noir but in French and with a risqué Lolita-style plot. It was very cool then and it still is very cool now. All the songs on the album are well worth listening to but “Ballade De Melody Nelson” is definitely a good place to start.

Classic stuff.
