  1. Hi ! This song had been written by Jacques Brel, and Bowie had aésked to make a cover of this song during 8 months to J. Brel, who didn't want. At the end, Brel said yes, and Bowie had make this incredible cover. Brel was probably an asshole, cause the only thing he said when he had listen to Bowie version was "there's energy in that cover" !!! Personnally, and it e'ngages just myself, I prefer Bowie's version without hesitation. I've even learned to play it when I've heard it, many many years ago (Bowie's version, of course), and each time I play it live, the people tell me that they've liked. Even once, nobofy had told me that he or she didn't like, without being pretentious. I know the reason why : Brel's original song was made to be listen, but Bowie's version, we can dance cause of the guitar. Another thing : when Bowie wanted the rhythm guitar to be well played, he didn't let anybody but him playing it, and in his version, there's just Bowie playing guitar and singing. Last time I played it live, the people were clapping their hands all along the song. I've knew Bowie's version before having really listened to Brel's one, and so I've watch Brel performing it. He's incredible, but his version is made to be listen, not to dance…A BOWIE fan.
