The Nico of Velvet Underground fame. Real name: Krista Paffgen.



Serge Gainsbourg [casted as the piano player in film Strip-Tease; organ instrumental]


Juliette Gréco [the voice in the movie]

Originally Gainsbourg cut it with Nico (under her own Christian name) as she played the part of striptease debutante in the Jacques Poitremond film. Not particularly fond of her voice and accent, he asked Juliette 'Déshabillez-moi' Gréco to take over.
