[Serge Gainsbourg] knew no cultural boundaries. He was a Eurovision Song Contest winner — 1965, representing Luxembourg, not France — who was also compared to France's greatest poets. When he died, in 1991, president Francois Mitterrand called him "our Apollinaire, our Baudelaire".Pfft. Trust a Frenchman to think one of theirs could be as talented as Apollinaire or Baudelaire.
