Gainsbourg put the tapes away in a drawer. Gainsbourg later asked Marianne Faithful to do the song with him. Together, they form an uneasy alliance; as if the original contains something that needs to be hidden or excluded. After Gainsbourg persuaded Birkin, they recorded it in Marble Arch.
Gainsbourg thought a better version than the original with Bardot. A tactic that ensured sales. The record was then banned in Italy after being denounced as obscenity by the Vatican newspaper. The head of Phonogram in Italy received a two month suspended sentence and a fine for the distributor. Bans followed in Spain and Sweden. The record was withdrawn from their catalogue.
The Instrumental covers continued with over 20 versions recorded. The song generally being subsumed to the style or instrument of the artist. JTMNP version 2 by Fausto Papetti, a former sax player for Chet Baker but also an Life Cycles - Watchtower - Control And Resistance easy listening star, and, in my opinion, the oddest of the instrumental versions, a piano bar version attributed to Pierre Blanche.
Bourvil, a plumber turned music hall entertainer, recorded his first record in A successful film, theatre and recording career ensued and his celebrity became such that De Gaulle admiringly remarked that Bourvil was the only comic he found amusing.
The second two, I think, require no introduction:. Second was Die Geschwister Pfister [the brothers and sisters Pfister] who, according to their website, were german orphans resettled in Vegas with their uncle Bill.

The film also gives us another two versions by Gainsbourg:. With disco finally over, we head into the eighties and, I say Welcome To Hell (Live) - Running Wild - Best Of Adrian with a few reservations, another generation of musicians picking up the song.

Finally, the version that Hot Butter would have recorded had they known Popcorn would be such a smash. Unfortunately for them, the version was recorded by Sven Vath and Miss Kittin. Time to move on into the euro-dance arena with three tracks from Italy, Spain and Germany respectively:. After sampling the ends of porn soundtracks, he invited molko, argento and notably John Cale to participate in the projcct.
In an effort to do the track and not pay for it, neubauten excluded the track from the track listing on the back. Second was entropy8zuper, an art duo who produced this version for a screen saver; Leviticus Ecstasy weighs in at a mammoth 18 and a half minutes duration, enough time to be away from your desk to make several cups of coffee and eat a few sandwiches.
Next up is the only mix in the show, johann dada of the web based Radio Fantastica was good enough to mail me this mix entitled Tu es perdu The music is provided by the Electronic Message Du Salut Orchestra and the vocal provided by a preacher.
