Music from Our Tube; Stromae as modern Jacques Brel

Stromae is a Belgian musician who had a huge hit with “Alors on danse” in 2010. I didn’t expect him to resurface with anything particularly interesting, but “Formidable”, his latest song (and its video) is really, really good:

Stromae – Formidable (ceci n'est pas une leçon)

Watch this video on YouTube.

Don’t ask me why, but this reminds me of Jacques Brel. Maybe this is what Jacky would sound like if he were alive and in his twenties now?
