Farewell my love....

Part5: BBC4's Friday night music programmes
An excellent documentary on Jacques Brel on tonight the only thing they missed out was when discussing the various versions of “Le Moribund” which via Rod McKuen, the Kingston Trio and finally Terry Jacks mutated into “Seasons in the sun” and was a big hit.

The one version they missed out was the one sung in every school yard across the land.

“We had joy we had fun flicking bogeys at the sun but the sun was too hot and the bogeys turned to snot”

Which I think was closer to the originals angst ridden bitter regret.
