I haven't heard that many mixable Brel Songs, if that's what you're looking for. But I just KNOW that he's gonna fit in somewhere and I'm gonna be the man to do it!

As far as cuts-like-a-knife honesty in the lyrics , check out :

My Death (Bowie does a KILLER cover of this! Leaves the crowd stoney silent)

Amsterdam (same thing ...Bowie)

Ne Me Quitte Pas . . most famous of all Brel stuff. Very very good.

The NY cast version of "Jaques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris" has a lot of the gems I know.

I have some MP3s of Brel sitting on my hard drive here. . .

I can't get over the Bowie covers or the Brel original recording, however. Loses something in the translation, but not much.
