Jane Birkin/Serge Gainsbourg (also known as Je t'aime... moi non plus[4]) is an album featuring duets and solo performances by Serge Gainsbourg and his then lover, Jane Birkin. It was released in 1969 and included the worldwide hit "Je t'aime... moi non plus", which achieved notoriety for its salacious lyrics with a backing of ecstatic female moaning, culminating in an apparent orgasm at the song's finale.[citation needed])
