After Hours

Serge Gainsbourg. Qui est "in," qui est "out?"

Look out! It's Serge! And he's got something sharp! Run! This isn't my favorite Serge tune - not by a longshot - but it is certainly weird. You have Serge delivering a thoroughly undynamic performance despite getting to cut through all those "in" and "out" signs and you've got his lipsynching backup singers dressed like stewardesses. After he threatens to send us all back to science fiction, he just stands around and looks a little disoriented. There are other clips of this tune, but believe it or not, they're actually worse. Still, it's been a while since I've featured Serge. And since most of his better stuff on the YouTubes is embed-disabled, this is what we're left with. So enjoy this second-tier Serge tune, huddled masses!
