Jaques Brel, Belgian singer and songwriter who lived his lyrics as you can see from this clip. The song was originally recorded in 1959 for his fourth album “La Valse à Mille Temps (The Waltz A Thousand Times As Fast). The song is widely known in English as If You Go Away, translated by Rod McKuen. The French title literally translated is Don’t Leave Me. A wonderful passionate purveyor of emotion that could penetrate your soul. Here it is in French with English subtitles.
