Ooh, boy. this one's a doozy. I initially picked this one up because it was cheap and because I was intrigued with the wrting credit, which lists co-composers Sylvia Robinson and Serge Gainsbourg. That alone is a pretty weird combination and worth checking out, I figured. Anyway, I got it home and filed it away without even listening to it and kind of forgot about it, until I got into a conversation with a friend at work about Serge Gainsbourg. Well, yesterday I pulled it out and gave it a spin and oh, brother! This one got moved up to the top of the stack quick. I'm not sure what exactly is going on here, but it seems like whatever they were attempting didn't really work out. I think this was supposed to be sexy, but to me it just sounds ridiculous, like some bad porno soundtrack gone horribly wrong... A brilliant disaster.
