Je t'aime, moi non plus is definitely the most powerful and sensual love declaration I've ever heard.
You're probably wondering why Serge Gainsbourg responds moi non plus (I don't either) to Jane Birkin's je t'aime.
Grammaticaly, it doesn't make sense. So why?
Is it to enlighten a "love-hate relationship"?
I tell you the story:
This song was written by Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot.
Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot were in love (obviously!).
The problem was... Brigitte Bardot was married!
While recording this song they pretended to make love (of course you heard that!).
But they knew this was an impossible love story.
And that made the expected answer moi aussi, je t'aime impossible as well.
One day Brigitte's husband discovered the song...
He was very, very angry.
The song couldn't be released and waited for years in a drawer...
...Until Jane Birkin (who became Serge Gainsbourg's wife) discovered the song and loved it so much that Serge and Jane decided to record the song together.
