Watch Jane Birkin and Iggy Pop Cover Serge Gainsbourg on 'The Tonight Show'
The unlikely pair took on the classic "Elisa"
Published Mar 05, 2020French music legend Jane Birkin appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to cover the work of her old musical partner Serge Gainsbourg, but she got quite the special guest to join her. Standing in for the late Gainsbourg was none other than Iggy Pop.
Last night (March 4), Birkin and Pop delivered a performance of "Elisa," a track famously from 1969's classic Jane Birkin et Serge Gainsbourg. But if the thought of Iggy Pop doing Serge Gainsbourg sounds hella weird, he actually made it work rather stunningly, with him and Birkin showing off some true onstage chemistry. Adding to it all was even Questlove on drums.
You can watch their duet of "Elisa" down below.
Birkin's Tonight Show performance comes as she gets set for her symphonic review "Songs of Serge Gainsbourg" on Friday (March 6) at New York City's Beacon Theatre.
