Found this on YouTube. It's a translation of "Le moribond" that sticks as close to the original French lyrics as possible.


I'm not sure if it was actually released other than being put on YouTube.

Oh how this beautiful work by Brel has been tortured over the years. Another example here........

I think Rod McKuen should have been imprisoned for his version, but he was not the only one! Actually I do like Arto Sotalvalta's Finnish version Päivät kuin unta. At least I do not understand it..............
