Fais-moi mal, Johnny Insane !

"Countdown to insanity"
Magali Noël & Boris Vian
"Fais-moi mal, Johnny"

Fais-moi mal, Johnny Insane !

The original title means "Hurt me bad, Johnny" and the song was recorded in 1956.

The lyrics are by Boris Vian, a crazy talented poet and songwriter who did insane things back in the days... he criticized the army, he wrote that song about a woman who likes rough love, most of these songs were censored back then, of course. Nowadays, he's a definite classic. This year we commemorate the 50th anniversary of his death. Hence this "blast from the past" bootlegal tribute.
