Pink Elephants


























Gonna take you into the weekend with a little French today. I'm all Scooter'd out.

I probably don't need to do much in the way of introduction to Serge Gainsbourg. He's a dirty bugger, and you know that. Filthy, really. Sexual deviant, ladies man, drinker of reknown, and icon of cool.

Gainsbourg's song "Intoxicated Man" came in at #26 on the Top 100 Drinking Songs List . It's a sleazy riff on a familiar delirium tremens trip. The translated lyrics are, well, a bit lost in translation, but the beat noir groove and Gainsbourg's typically lecherous, smoky delivery conveys a veritable pink elephants on parade vibe. It's trashed decadence at it's finest, as only Gainsbourg could deliver.

As a bonus we've tossed in some time Bad Seed, Mick Harvey's English-language (sorta) version. Why? 'Cuz we like Mick Harvey, and he released two fine Serge Gainsbourg cover albums, well worth your time.

Recommended reading: "Under The Volcano" by Malcolm Lowry.
