    When love fails, as it often does in Brel's songs, there's the comfort of a faithful and sympathetic friend, such as we find in Jef, one of Brel's most noteworthy songs. The publication of the Fondation Jacques Brel is named Jef for this song, and their wonderful 3 DVD box set is titled with a line from Jef, "Comme quand on était beau."
    He wrote it in 1964 but this is a 1966 performance from a farewell concert at the Olympia.(Subtitle correction-- Jef weighs 100 kilos, not 10, or 220 pounds).
