This lady has a few stories to tell: about Gainsbourg, the swinging 60s in London, the revolution in Paris in 68 and her incredible career.
_(artist-name)Jane Birkin_ is a legendary figure in more than one way. Having first found fame as an actress in Antonioni’s 60s masterpiece _(album-title)Blow Up_, she married composer and arranger _(artist-name)John Barry_ at a very young age. A few years later she was cast for a role in a French movie and met _(artist-name)Serge Gainsbourg_ when she sang the film’s theme which he had written. Here began a love affair that was outlasted by a long and fruitful musical relationship. Finding scandalous fame and notoriety with the erotic pop song _(song-title)Je T’aime.. Moi Non Plus_, Birkin was also featured on the heavily sampled classic _(album-title)Histoire De Melody Nelson_. Jane Birkin continued to record and sing songs by Serge and later began to collaborate with a new generation of songwriters such as _(artist-name)Feist_, _(artist-name)Beth Gibbons_, _(artist-name)Franz Ferdinand_ or _(artist-name)MC Solaar_.
