Marc Almond: “Jacky”

I first heard this song at the end of a third season episode of “Absolutely Fabulous”, when Patsy is unceremoniously getting rid of her parasitic older sister Jackie. I finally did a little search, and found the English version of the Jacques Brel original, “Jacky,” first performed by Scott Walker:

British singer Marc Almond, of Soft Cell, did a techno remake in the early 90s.

It’s a pretty excellent song.
