Jackie by Scott Walker
Originally written by the coolest ugliest frenchman ever, Jacques Brel, and covered again in the 80’s by Mark Almond, this one of my friday favourites.
Scott Walker’s version is brilliant and if you can find a high quality video of his live performance, then it’s well worth a look.
This video is corny as all hell but we’re only in it for the sound right!?
Just try playing this on the iPod while you walk to work in the morning, you’ll find yourself stutting about like some victorian gigolo. It’s marvellous.
Have a lovely weekend everyone… I hope you all get laid.
