Gainsbourg Celebration Day 2

Song originally by Serge Gainsbourg and available on the album De Gainsbourg à Gainsbarre, Vol. 1.
Here's the new coverversion with Jane Birkin & Franz Ferdinand which is featured on the new 'Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited'

Sorry Angel - Live duet with Jane Birkin & Franz Ferdinand

Sorry angel, désolé

I sent you to suicide, lover
I wasn't worth the pain
Without me, you decided, lover
On the voyage of the vain

Sorry angel, désolé

Was it some dark vertigo, lover?
Drawing you to pain
Drawing you to loneliness, lover
The voyage of the vain

Sorry angel, désolé

I tried everything, lover
It wasn't worth the strain
Fate led us onwards, lover
Remorseless in vain

Sorry angel, désolé

I sent you to suicide, lover
Opened up the vein
So you're an angel, lover
Forever

Hei Sofie :) Jeg deler din begeistring for Gainsbourg. Har noen sjeldne 60tallsinnspillinger jeg tenkte jeg ville legge ut på nett, hvis jeg kommer så langt. For øyeblikket er min blogg inaktiv (tok for mye tid).

Har bodd i Berlin siden mai 2005. Jobbet noen år som lærer i Norge etter endt utdanning. Så ble jeg litt lei og dro hit. Kjøper musikk, lærer tysk, osv. Enn du? :)

Smiler... Glemte å presentere meg ordentlig. Jeg heter Roar.

He gezellig, zal ik dan in het Nederlands wat typen, or should I stick to English? Anyways, thanks for this great post! Can't wait for that tribute-album to drop.
