mission: france gall

i have been reliably informed that the last serge gainsbourg song that france gall recorded was infact the brilliant 'je suis venu te dire que je m'em vais'. blowupdoll buddy georges has this version which sounds like a mash up between serge and frances versions. now what i really need is the original solo version by france gall. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
f.g. & s.g. je suis venu te dire que je m'em vais

MARIE LAFORET - D'ETRE A VOUS
i managed to buy some good vinyl on holiday - which i'll be posting sometime in the near future. i also have some ace new doll pics coming up.
in the meantime, this is the song that's been in my head the past few days.

en vacances

BRIGITTE BARDOT - LA FILLE DE PAILLE (a mordi summer essential)
i'm on holiday in the south of france! so if you see a handsome man driving around with the windows down listening to bardot or looking around the marche aux puces scouring for old vinyl whilst complaining about the heat - that will be me!
