Charlotte Gainsbourg’s father was a Jewish survivor of the Nazis and a self-made man who remade all of French music while he was at it. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call Serge Gainsbourg the most important French musician of the 20th century. His knotty wordplay means his songs are treacherous to translate, but the mix of sex appeal and heady satire hasn’t been seen before or since — as if the Rolling Stones joined forces with Randy Newman.

"Songbird In A Cage" was written by Paul McCartney
Here’s a little video of SebastiAn and I discussing the story behind the song and the time we spent with Paul in the studio.
Thanks to BBC Radio 6 Music for adding the song straight to their A list.
