Gainsbourg Revisited

I recently baught the Gainsbourg Revisited CD. It was a tribute to his 15th day of death. It is a new musical interpretation of his songs in english language. Most of the songs still match to his original melodies and some have been recorded as electronic version as Tricky did with "Emanuelle". But no matter which artist did what...he or she did it perfectly. It is a wonderful multi facetted CD I would hightly recommend. Artists include Franz Ferdinant, Jarvis Cocker, Jane Birkin, Carla Bruni, Marianne Faithful, Portishead and more. You can find more information (like interviews and videos) on the homepage which has been exclusively built for this project: .
