MELODY NELSON STORY 50th anniversary Melody Nelson’s story holds a very special place in Serge Gainsbourg’s discography. In the aftermath of the global success of Je t’aime moi non plus Serge Gainsbourg, inspired by his new partner, Jane Birkin, decided “to get down to business.” With the collaboration of a very young musician, Jean-Claude Vannier, he created an album hailed as one of the most remarkable successes of orchestral pop around the world.
