French Artist SARASARA Honors Late Infamous Genius SERGE GAINSBOURG

Daily electricity to load your batteries

27 March 2022

SARASARA is a French singer, songwriter, producer
and programmer who started her musical career in
the United Kingdom.

To honor the late infamous musical genius Serge Gainsbourg
she made an EP, titled SARASARA X SERGE GAINSBOURG with
notable covers of two of his famous reveries, Requiem Pour Un Con
and La Javanainse and added also the instrumental version of the
latter track.

– REQUIEM POUR UN CON –

This is really amazing. Hearing Gainsbourg singing over a sickly sticky ambient
stomper is truly special. Balancing between British hip-hop-techno experts Leftfield
and Massive Attack Sarasara will make people shake their hips on the dancefloor with
this irresistible modern disco knockout. And when Sarasara joins Jane Birkin’s late
partner, midway, the track gets sensual and sultry. Yes, je t’aime moi non plus.

Get up, stand up and fight for your right to party
with this ace tandem Sarasara X Serge Gainsbourg.

Right here, right now…

– LA JAVANAISE –

Also a magnific interpretation. Sarasara slows the original down and turns
it into an appealing ballad with her wonderful voice. Just great.

Single: JE T’AIME MOI NON PLUS

The controversial song topped the UK Singles Charts this day 52 years ago,
on 11 October 1969 despite the fact that many radio stations didn’t want to
play it because of its sexual lines and sounds. Even historic BBC music show
Top Of The Pops refused to air the No. 1 hit.
