Je t’aime… moi non plus was originally written and recorded as a duet with Brigitte Bardot and Serge Gainsbourg in 1967. Bardot’s husband, Gunther Sachs, objected to its explicit nature, however, and blocked the release. Rerecorded in 1969 with Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin instead, the song’s lewdness gained it immediate infamy in several countries where it was subsequently banned. The original recording with Bardot was eventually released in the 1980’s, guaranteeing that the song would be forever suggestive of both legendary female icons.
