A brilliant little track, often overlooked in the great man's catalogue. Starts off oddly like the James Bond theme (for the time and location!) but gradually changes into a strange chanson-meets-Latin kind of thing... great song though, from a film of the same name. Has anyone here ever seen it?
from Bande Originale Du Film "L'Eau A La Bouche" (French Philips 432.492 BE) available on CD - Couleur Cafe (Mercury)
08 Aug 05 ·phil: I agree - this is one of my fave Serge songs. Haven't seen the film though.
This song has one of those melodys that I've listened to a lot of times and still I can't really say that I've figured it out... The string arrangement is stunning also... works perfectly with Serge's voice... Everybody should be able to recognize the french word for hate... he sings it very hateful...
