Here are a couple of tracks from what I consider to be Gainsbourg's finest. Historie de Melody Nelson is the story of a fictional girl that Gainsbourg woos. In reality it is Jane Birkin. She was his love at the time and she is the model on the cover and the female vocal on the album.
Air must have listened to this record nonstop for years, as you can even hear similar chords used on their first singles.
