After Hours

Serge. The Initials B.B.

Hint: B.B. = Brigitte Bardot. Super cool. He's just smokin' and tellin' it like it is. If I could switch bodies, it would be with Serge - only I'd be alive now and trolling for 19 year-olds in some former French colony.

If you're wondering what he's singing about, Mick Harvey did a half-decent translation:

Mick's arrangement is better (and less plodding), but I gotta give the nod to Serge. He actually did B.B., so he oughta know. Yeah, she hasn't made a movie since 1973 and she's quite crazy, but back in the day, oh my...

What's the appeal? Uh, beats me...
