If I Were Ever a Funny-Looking French Dude ...

could I be Serge Gainsbourg?

If you haven't heard, his legendary album, Histoire de Melody Nelson, is finally being released stateside.

Check out the "Ballade de Melody Nelson" video on YouTube. You Flight of the Conchords fans will definitely appreciate it.

"Ugliness is in a way superior to beauty because it lasts."

My husband is French and we adore Serge, not sure how he got all the honeys but he has some fantastic songs!

Here you go, Andi.

"He [Gainsbourg] attributed his appeal to women to a charmed sense of vulnerability, as well as his baggy eyes, three-day stubble and perpetual halo of smoke from five daily packs of Gitanes," William Drozdiak wrote in the Washington Post.
