Week 7 - La chanson de Prévert - Serge Gainsbourg
I really didn’t start listening to Serge Gainsbourg until I started listening to a lot of 60’s French pop. I began noticing that many of the songs I enjoyed are written by him. Singer, composer, painter, poet, writer, actor, director…talking about a prolific artist! This is more of a sombre piece by him but I love it. It also refers “Les feuilles mortes” - song by another of my favorite French artists, Yves Montand. My French is pitiable but I can’t help but wanting to sing in it. Hope you enjoy.
