Jane Birkin/Serge Gainsbourg (also known as Je t'aime... moi non plus) is an album featuring duets and solo performances by Jane Birkin and her lover, Serge Gainsbourg. It was released in 1969 and included the worldwide hit Je t'aime... moi non plus, which achieved its fame for its salacious lyrics against a background of female moaning and groaning, culminating in an orgasm at the song's conclusion (the rumours according to which this is the result of the couple actually engaging in sex during the recording of the song is unlikely to be true).
