Ex-Fan des Sixties

French Pop Wednesday y'all.

Jane Birkin was the long-standing muse of France's pop libertine Serge Gainsbourg - he kept writing whole albums for her even after they separated. This is the title track from her weird 1978 album 'Ex-Fan des Sixties' - I think they broke into the set of Welcome Back, Kotter to film the video. See, we had Patsy Gallant on our variety specials; France had Jane Birkin on theirs.

(Thanks, Pollyscake!)

I hate to rain on their parade, but wasn't Buddy Holly dead by 1959?

Details, details...

I'm just glad T-Rex made the cut.
