La valse a mille temps...

I finally bought a Jacques Brel album. Just for the pleasure of listening to one of the best songs ever written over and over again.
"et Paris qui bat la mesure, Paris qui mesure notre emoi, et Paris qui bat la mesure, laisse enfin eclater sa joie..."
What other city does that?

Oooh, he IS good isn't he?
I got into him via David Bowie, who has a penchant for translating Brel's work into English and recording them.
Mainly Port of Amsterdam and My Death (i can't remember the french names).
