And while we're on the subject of France Gall

Sean's favourite Eurovision winner is also known for having recorded "Les Sucettes," written by French pervo Serge Gainsbourg of "Je t'aime, Moi, Non Plus" fame. It is, quite possibly, the dirtiest song ever written at that time period. The song and video are safe for work, but probably shouldn't be.

Check out the lyrics and decide for yourself.

From Wiki:

"He would frequently show up drunk and unshaven on stage. Perhaps his most famous incident came when, on Michel Drucker's live Saturday evening show with the American singer Whitney Houston, he exclaimed, "I want to fuck her."

Why can't I stop laughing?

According to a Gainsbourg biography I read, Poor Mmme Gall claims to have been unaware of the double-entendre (even thought that's French word), and when someone clued her a few years later, it really added a sting to all that success.

Thanks for posting the videos.

That was filthy.

That guy also did a music video in bed with his daughter.

Poor Mmme Gall must have had an exceptional level of naïveté.

Who over the age of 8 didn't get the double entendre?
