Oh, Witty Englishmen…

Awesome web find of the day: the career of Jacques Brel and his impact on popular music.

Scott Walker did a great cover of this song on the CD, Sings Jacques Brel.  It was cleverly utilized at the end of an Absolutely Fabulous episode (over the closing credits). You can forward the clip to hear…no, just watch the entire clip because Absolutely Fabulous ROCKS.

Here’s Scott himself:

Oh, there’s a movie!

New to the world of Jacques Brel? Think of him as a progenitor of Momus.
