Here's a favourite song by a favourite writer (Michele Brourman - lyrics here by Karen Gottlieb) and a favourite singer, Amanda McBroom.  Amanda also writes (The Rose) and Michele sings.  For all I know they are probably mean tap dancers as well.  They are stalwarts of that small but precious world of cabaret and recently packed out the Crazy Coqs in London.  I urge you to seek them out if you haven't heard them before.  Amanda's album of Brel songs, Chanson, is terrific. I sang this song in public for the first time last night so I thought it would be nice for everyone to hear it done properly...
