Brigitte Bardot Croons Alien Love Song

Here's another scifi song to take to that barren asteroid with you: Brigitte Bardot singing Serge Gainsbourg's "Contact." "A meteorite has pierced my heart," chants Brigitte in this tale of wounded interplanetary love, "I need a transfusion of mercury. ... Remove my spacesuit ..."

Actually, given the reference to mercury, maybe the song is about an outer-space STD. (If you want to give your fractured high school French a workout, the lyrics are here.) Whatever it means, this scopitone from 1968 is a little bit Dada, a little bit rock 'n' roll, and a whole lot of spacey weirdness.

She can be my Alien love queen any day [wheezing snort-laugh whilst pushing up glasses].

I'd love to put Devo in the background as two foot tall drones attending their alien queen, just like in my fantasy...er...nevermind. Hey, this was BEFORE collagen injections were invented. Amazing.

Sadly, a lot of the modern French music looks and sounds the same. TV5 looks like some mutation dragged out of the early 70's. Tacky, bordering on creepy.
