Something new to me! Thank you. I had my coffee and was getting ready for work flying around the room!

I love the "unmentionable word"... (which is "con" by the way)

And have you seen the video of "ne me quitte pas" (which means "don't leave me" for the one who don't understand french). I think it is one of the most beautiful french songs ever written and the interpretation of Brel is quite impressing.
The lyrics of the song are here :

I've got this song on an old vinyl LP of Brel at the Olympia. Never thought of looking for a version on video. Thanks for posting it.
