October 9, 2018, marks the 40th anniversary of Belgian singer Jacques Brel’s passing. He left an incredible legacy to French music. Francophone artists including Sylvie Vartan, Lara Fabian, Nicola Ciccone, have remade his songs, such as the classic hit “Ne me quitte pas” (Don’t Leave Me).

Ne me quitte pas is my favourite song for the late singer. I heard this song remade by British artist Sting and Canadian artist Nicola Ciccone. His music is rich in poetry and style.
