Pop Singer?? Jacques Brel??
I gues we can say his songs were popular (though not all the time) but not pop...
He is and will stay a Chanson Francaise treasure...

Goodbye to you my trusted friend
We've known each other since we were nine or ten
Together we climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and ABCs
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees
Goodbye my friend it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
Little children everywhere
I wish that we could both be there
