Lovers Call It Love, Beggars Charity
Early work by Jacques Brel showing the influence of the Catholic youth group he belonged. The freedom of Montmartre in the '60's and its appreciation of art in its streets is celebrated in this video. Yes,there once was a world that celebrated differences and creativity. Are we to be led into complacency and homogenization? You merchants on St. George Street..... Do you feel hostage to your landlord? Are you in business for the money alone? Does a beggar threaten you only by his presence? Was there a time in your life when you didn't think about the almighty dollar? Was there a time that you didn't look around for blame when your P&L is in the red? Leave your prejudices behind. The street artist is not your enemy. Are you so close to your commerce that you do not see the greatness of this small city? Take your eyes off the cash register and look around. Celebrate this City!
