Georges Brassens (French)
Georges Brassens (22 October 1921 - 29 October 1981) was a popular French singer/songwriter. Les Copains d'Abord is one of his most popular songs. There's a very useful discussion and translation of the song at: The songs of Georges Brassens with English translation. This video is taken from a concert at Bobino in Paris, France, on 19 January 1972. Brassens is surprised when the orchestra joins in on the song towards the end.
