France Gall sings Je suis venue te dire…


Yes, France Gall has sung Serge’s brilliant break-up song Je suis venue te dire que je m’en vais. Did not know that either. Find it here.


  1. LOL @ Serge Gainsbourg was een smeerlapke.
    Interesting story though and a fine ‘new’ track.
    The crying reminds me a lot of Anita Lane’s crying on ‘The Kindness Of Strangers’ at Nick Cave’s Murder Ballads album from 1996:

  2. Almost every week somebody brings something up about Serge that I did not know, that I’m surprised about. Still. It’s why I love him so dearly, and what I love about this blog. Thanks Patick, thanks Will.

  3. Guuzbourg, that wasn’t the first time she sang something by Gainsbourg again. there’s also ‘Les ballons’ from 1972. Here’s the story (in dutch): http://peerkesplaatjes.skynetblogs.be/

  4. I’m surprised you didn’t know about this Guuz, there’s even a photo of them recording it!
