In 1971 Serge released the ephebophilia themed French concept album, Histoire de Melody Nelson. The theme of the album explores an affair between Gainsbourg and nymphet Melody Nelson. The song “Melody” reveals that they met after Gainsbourg accidentally knocked Melody off her bike with his Rolls Royce. As Gainsbourg exited his ‘Silver Ghost from the nineteen hundreds’ he noticed ‘Her skirt pulled over her white Knickers.’
