Moliere critique de l'ecole des femmes
I – Biography.
His real name was Lucien Ginsburg. He was born on the second of April nineteen twenty-eight in Paris.
He was interested in arts , so he began to take drawing lessons. He met Elizabeth, his first love and he got married with her in nineteen fifty three. Nobody noticed him for his talent , so he turned to music. In nineteen fifity eight, his first record came out .
Bit by bit , he became famous in cinema and produced records. He met Jane Birkin in a shooting and he spent twelve years with her.
His concerts in nineteen eighty pushed him to the top.
But his career stopped with his death in nineteen ninety one.
II – His outstanding personality.
I have chosen Serge Gainsbourg for his madness, originality and arrogance.
First of all, he thought he was bad-looking and people even said he was ugly.
But for the age, he dared to do something hard.
His lyrics are provocative, vulgar and I think, his image shocked and amused the public. His vulgarity became his trademark.
Moreover ,when he burnt a 500 franc note during a live television program, he did not care for people’s reactions. He was in a way perfectly free. I like this character because he was the champion of the unexpected : when he was invited in a television show, nobody could say what was going to happen. I also enjoy listening to his melodies mixing very different musical styles.
As a conclusion , Gainsbourg , even if he is not an example to follow, is considered as a genius and I advise everybody to listen to his records
