And how he sings it!





I always thought, that Jacques Brel wrote this song, but it’s from an American musical, The man from Mancha, and was composed by Mitch Leigh (music) and Joe Darton (lyrics). In English it’s called ‘The impossible dream’.  The French version of the musical was written by Jacques Brel, who also played the leading part. This was the only time Jacques Brel ever adapted songs by other writers or appeared in a stage musical.
