Gainsbourg's trademark cool, laid-back style of singing and even his lyrics is such a perfect match for the reggae sound. In the light of that, this album really had every chances of hitting the bulls-eye - and it did! And even better - the reggae sound is really genuine and amazingly groovy, all recorded in Kingston, Jamaica.
The title track is the most famous one here, often included in career spanning collections of Gainsbourg's work. But there is really no low point here. The album, although now considered a masterpiece by French critics, was a commercial failure. After a turbulent year relationship, Jane Birkin left Gainsbourg. In the s, near the end of his life, Gainsbourg became a regular figure on French TV.
His appearances were increasingly devoted to his controversial sense of humour and provocation. Gainsbourg spat out at her, "You're nothing but a filthy whore".
For many in France, this incident was the last straw, and much of his later work was overlooked since it was often done and performed while he was inebriated. After Gainsbourg's passing, Eddy Mitchell reported that their duet of " You Rascal You " had far fewer sales than would have normally been expected because of this. Michel Drucker, also, reported that he had a difficult time apologizing to Whitney Houston. After that particular incident, Gainsbourg was never again really "clean" in public, almost always having a drink in his hand and a lit cigarette between his lips, thus disgusting many with his behavior and demeanor in all he said and did.
His songs became increasingly eccentric during this period, ranging from the anti-drug "Aux Enfants de la Chance", to the highly controversial duet with his daughter Charlotte named " Lemon Incest ".
While on stage he began to tell an obscene story about Brigitte Bardot and a champagne bottle, only to stagger offstage and collapse in a nearby seat.
He had to undergo liver surgery but denied any connection to cancer or cirrhosis. His appearances and releases became sparser as he had to rest and recover in Vezelay. During these final years, he released Love on the Beat , a controversial electronic album with mostly sexual themes examplified by the titular song, for which he sampled actual sexual screams from Bambou , and his last studio album, You're Under Arrest , which presented more synth-driven songs, as well as two live albums.
Gainsbourg appeared in nearly 50 film and television roles. In he wrote music for and appeared as himself in Le Pacha directed by Georges Lautner. In , he appeared in William Klein's pop art satire Mr. They acted together again in Cannabis the following year, and again in Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye in Throughout his career, Gainsbourg wrote the soundtracks for nearly 60 films and television programs.
Gainsbourg, who smoked five packs of unfiltered Gitane cigarettes a day,  died on 2 March of a heart attack , a month shy of his 63rd birthday. He was buried in the Jewish section of the Montparnasse Cemetery in Paris.
He elevated the song to the level of art. Since his death, Gainsbourg's music has reached legendary stature in France. One of the most frequent interpreters of Gainsbourg's songs was British singer Petula Clark , whose success in France was propelled by her recordings of his tunes. In , she wrote and recorded La Chanson de Gainsbourg as a tribute to the composer of some of her biggest hits. The Parisian house in which Gainsbourg lived from until , at 5 bis Rue de Verneuil, remains a celebrated shrine, with his ashtrays and collections of various items, such as police badges and bullets, intact.
The outside of the house is covered in graffiti dedicated to Gainsbourg, as well as with photographs of significant figures in his life, including Bardot and Birkin.
