I don't know if it's still the case, but in years past Serge Gainsbourg has been pretty much hipster bait. His my shit don't stink attitude, personal style, and, oh yeah, his music, made him perfect for other generations to emulate and name drop. You know the type. They have a couple records of his laying around to appear cool. While some of his music is worthy, no question about that, his dabbling in reggae was pretty weak. That said, the dub versions are kind of a hoot. His vocals just pop in here and there to remind you that you are listening to the guy who told Whitney Houston that he wanted to fuck her on a French TV show. What a nut!
