Off of the upcoming Serge Gainsbourg English-language cover album, Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited, we’ve got a pretty hot cover of the legendarily Pope-banned “Je taime…moi non plus” by Cat Power and Karen Elson, Jack White’s supermodel wife. It loses something in English, but, come on- is there anything Chan can’t sex up? (Related: any updates on why she canceled her tour?)
Anyway, the whole album features Franz Ferdinand, The Kills, Tricky, Jarvis Cocker, Portishead, and Michael Stipe, and it’s out Monday.

People with a taste for campy British humor and Gainsbourg completists will enjoy this parody by Carry On stars Frankie Howerd and June Whitfield. The rest of you will get it in the MP3 feed and hate me.
