Sang predominantly in French, but also had quite a few versions of his songs in Dutch. In his song "Marieke" he combined Dutch and French in the lyrics. His most famous songs include "Ne Me Quitte Pas, Laat Me Niet Alleen", "Le Plat Pays, Mijn Vlakke Land" and "Marieke".

Stuck, bored and unfulfilled at the family’s cardboard factory back in Brussels, 24-year-old Brel fled for Paris in September 1953, leaving his wife and young family in Belgium, a temporary arrangement that would remain permanent but for one abortive attempt to relocate them . The first full studio album in almost a decade – better known simply as Brel – was the hottest ticket in the Francosphere in 1977, fired up by label Barclay’s cunning marketing tactics, Brel’s ongoing reclusivity and rumours of ill health.
The original album, titled Jacques Brel et ses Chansons, was released in March 1954 as a nine-song 10-inch LP by Philips Records (N 7. 27 R).
