Originals: Je t'aime... moi non plus by Serge Gainsbourg et Jane Birkin (covered by Angel Corpus Christi and Dean Wareham)

OK, I wasn't entirely sure if this one qualified for the series - it being Dean guesting on Angel Corpus Christi's single - but then I thought, it's my blog and why wouldn't I want to grasp the opportunity to put some top notch French smut on it!?

Serge originally recorded with racist nutjob Brigitte Bardot until her husband found out about it

... and then he recorded it with his new girlfriend Jane Birkin, and it's a much better version too...

OK... I think I need a cold bath now

Angel Corpus Christi and Dean covered it for a 7" single released in 1994
