That's odd, Wolfgang, I had the impression that Brel was big in Western Europe generally (at least he seems to be in Holland and Belgium, but then again that's Brel country.)

It is odd that people don't want to listen to difficult lyrics. A great tune should be balanced by great words. Especially odd, from what Kevin says, that people willing to sit thru a 10-minute long ballad should object to singer-songwriters!
