THE HEARTBREAKING JACQUES BREL
W E D N E S D A Y, 3 1 M A Y
Went down to the hutch and found the article!!!
Anya didn't hear Procol Harum on Monday, and the youth club Bar-B-Q was weedy. Neither Gerry or Stuart were there.
R.I. was quite interesting – Google Eye gave us a diagram of all the religions that exist and where they stem from. French Conv. was much better than usual as we got onto French singers - it was so good. Mlle Tronchard thinks George Brassens is marvellous, she likes Jacques Brel too. I love 'Ne Me Quitte Pas'. Then she asked me my favourite singers so I said, a big grin spreading across my face, Adamo, Jacques Dutronc, Hughes Aufray... and Michel Polnareff. “Oh,” she said, “il est affreux! Have you ever seen a photo of him?” “YES,” I said, “and with his new hairstyle he’s lovely!” I felt quite trembly, it was so good.
Read a very good article on Mick Jagger on the bus - Jenny's, of course. Daddy would have a shock if he read it and found out what a sensible person Mick Jagger is. He is so narrow-minded about people like him, it's his great fault.
On the bus Pat and me talked about ‘O’ Levels, I never realized they were so near. I did homework more diligently than usual, and didn't listen to radio until 8pm.
Heard that fab Jacques Brel song on the radio, it's La Chanson de Vieux Amants'. The words are "oh mon amour, mon nouveau, tendre, merveilleuse amour..." It almost breaks your heart.
