Video of the Day [3.19.2009]

Jacques Brel, a French singer of Flemish descent was somebody I discovered by accident. This was, by far, one of the happiest accidents I've seen. Brel's work has been translated and adapted into English cover songs by many artists, including David Bowie. This song, Amsterdam, is one of those songs. This live performance of Amsterdam is one of the songs that he sings with such passion, it is truly moving. I'll post more of his songs as time goes on, but I thought I'd start with this.
