C’est dur de mourir au printemps, tu sais

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michael E. van Landingham @ 3:48 pm

I love Jacques Brel. I also love when Anglophones cover Jacques Brel. So because springtime has finally come to Saint Petersburg, I would like to celebrate the joy that is living with a Brel song about death, “Le moribond.” Won’t you join me?

Now a cover by the amazing band Beirut:
