"Serge Gainsbourg both charmed us and repelled us, which made him a familiar enigma, a dazzling mystery. Simultaneously Jekyll and Hyde, shy and provocative, modest yet exhibitionist, masculine and feminine, he represents the two extremes of desire and natural urges. Gainsbourg is almost unique in French music. Only he and Léo Ferré developed their own texts and their arrangements to such an extent. Gainsbourg wrote and composed not as an author or a musician would, but like a painter. He used words, notes and instruments as he would have done colors and paintbrushes."
