La Javanaise was written and composed by Serge Gainsbourg originally for Juliette Gréco, and interpreted by both her and Serge Gainsbourg in 1963. The story behind the song goes: One summer evening in 1962, Gréco and Gainsbourg spent the evening listening to records and drinking champagne in the huge lounge at 33, rue de Verneuil. The next day, he sent her La Javanaise. The song has been used in many movies. From 1998s romantic comedy Dieu seul me voit (Only God Sees Me) to 2017s academy award wining romantic dark fantasy The Shape of Water and it has been as fascinating every single time.
