I especially like the "Garde moi une gitane" one...
It means "Keep a cigarette for me".

Serge was so incredible. I mean, the man was troubled and all, but his lyrics and music is just amazing..

I read his favorite shoes were the Repetto Zizi's.. anyone have pictures of him wearing them? I've only seen one which was very bad quality.

walrus, do you know what's going on in the first video of la javanaise?.
it's obviously a very emotional performance, I assume it's a tribute for him but I want to know if there's more behind it?.

Oh...watching Jane brought tears to my eyes...what love...

I steeped myself in Serge growing up...an integral part of my formative years, fortunately or unfortunately...what a cheeseball he is:p ...nevertheless he's got this sincere, earnest quality you just gotta love......and quite timeless too, I never seem to tire of his music.

Yes, I like.

And oh-ho, I love all the duets :hearts:

Haven't heard much of him yet though, anybody has something to recommend?

I re-edited/translated some info I found on the performance (from various wiki pages):

On March 3rd 1990, Paradis was hailed as the "Best New French Actress" at the "César" awards. In the course of the award ceremony Paradis took to the stage amidst general applause to perform Serge Gainsbourg’sclassic "La javanaise" with Patrick Bruel and Michel Sardou. Gainsbourg, present in the audience that night, was greatly impressed.
