25 years ago, one of the most iconic figures of French music: Serge Gainsbourg disappeared. His story, his music, his personality made him a legend. And the influence of Gainsbourg is felt even today far beyond French borders. 

Serge Gainsbourg (1928–1991), the greatest French songwriter of the 1960s and 1970s, was as famous for his decadent life and cynical wit as for the songs he sang. He made a career out of writing clever, provocative lyrics, recording many of them himself and giving others to his many famous friends and lovers to sing. His theatrical rudeness and outrageous provocations made him infamous and beloved in France.
