A too much irregular album. It mixes elements and ideas of pop, rock, prog, trying to creat some music like a soundtrack ( spoken parts are for this?). A doubt: is Melody a real woman?

hola Alex B:

wikipedia says about that "Melody Nelson is the fictional subject of a concept album, Histoire de Melody Nelson, by French musician Serge Gainsbourg.
Similar in concept to, if not based on, the infamous Vladimir Nabokov novel Lolita, the plot of the album concerns the protagonist's brief relationship with a teenage English girl named Melody Nelson, who he meets when his Rolls-Royce collides with her bicycle. They begin a passionate but short love affair, which ends when Melody dies in a plane crash."

well, only exist in gainsbourg's imaginary
