it is a great song, and it's called Nouveau Western. The sample you hear is from
an old Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot (yes, THE Brigitte Bardot) song
called Bonnie And Clide. late 60s early 70s methink.
Serge Gainsbourg is now unfortunately dead, too much cigarette/alcohol abuse
for him. too bad he was one of the best french artists ever.
Brigitte Bardot is still alive, fighting for animal rights, especially baby
seals :)

check out anything from Serge Gainsbourg you can find.
