Mireille Mathieu Ne me quitte pas Russia Logo


Song of separation, in a Russian theater. Not a dry eye in the house there.
Originally Performed in French by Jacques Brel.
Performed in English If You Go Away by Dusty Springfield,
Frank Sinatra and many others.

Though often cited as the most beautiful love song in the French language,
Brel tells us it's not a love song at all, rather a portrait of a man who
degrades himself and loses his dignity for a woman who doesn't love him.
