15. Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot – "Bonnie & Clyde"
Weeks before her death in 1934, notorious criminal Bonnie Parker wrote "The Trail's End," a poem about the tribulations faced by her and her partner Clyde Barrow, whom she'd known since he was "honest and upright and clean." (She gave it to her mother.) The source material proved irresistible for the slightly sleazy yé-yé legend Serge Gainsbourg, who recast a French-language adaptation of the poem as a duet between him and his then-muse, the breathy Brigitte Bardot. Even for non-Francophones, the combination of Bardot's weary sighs and Gainsbourg's rasp oozes with the sort of eroticism that can only come from impending doom.
