GUEST,Van Jacques Brel - what's it all about? (53* d) RE: Jacques Brel - what's it all about? 18 Feb 04


It's a pity you don't understand French and that some translations used the tunes and turned the words into trashy pop songs.
He is one of the best songwriters - easily up there with Dylan, Cohen etc. Learn French well enough to understand what he is saying, experience life enough to feel what he is feeling, or give up and listen to Beyonce.
