Ballade de Melody Nelson ( Serge Gainsbourg 1971 )

Notes : The song is extremely more complex in harmony and rythm than
        it sounds. 

        The time signature is a mixture of 3/4, 4/4 and 5/4, 
        and it can be heard on the record that pieces of bars were pasted
        together, which makes it even more difficult to follow with the guitar.
       
        And the vocals ( in french ) usually start on the 2nd beat,
        in syncopated time ...
