March 24 marks the 50th birthday of ‘Histoire de Melody Nelson’. To celebrate, I made an extensive playlist with preludes, inspirations, songs that Jean-Claude Vannier & Gainsbourg made earlier, soundalikes, contemporaries and use of samples. It’s HERE on Spotify.

I wrote an article for Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant about HdMN, that piece was translated to English for THIS website.
