Emiliana Torrini goes Belgian: Jacques Brel cover "If you go away" on Rarities Album

Yesterday I bought the Emiliana Torrini Album called "Rarities" @ R.I.P. Bilbo Antwerpen. An album with covers & B-sides.
Cover photograph proves this smoking issue.
Released by Virgin Records America, Inc. as a CD promo back in 2001.
Now also officially released by One Little Indian Ltd. in 2009 (catalogue number TPLP1015CD)
Number 2 is a Jacques Brel cover (the original is called "Ne me quitte pas"). Brel is probably best (known) Belgian singer-songwriter & actor ever, not French excusez-moi, died too soon of lung cancer (as notorious heavy smoker).
Judge for yourself here:

9 Tracks:
Weird Friendless Kid 4:14
If You Go Away 4:34
7-Up Days 3:48
Flirt 2:03
Tuna Fish (Acoustic Version) 2:55
Baby Blue (Rae & Christian Remix) 7:35
Easy (Remix) 3:04
Unemployed In Summertime (Remix) 5:57
To Be Free (Futureshock Mix) 8:09

In April Árni V. of FM Belfast & friends (Sesar A a.o.) did "No limit" of 2 Unlimited (Belgian/Dutch - B/NL group) @ Aldrei festival 2009 after-party on Sunday night.
I talked with Árni about Björk doing a 2 Unlimited song in France to do a FM Belfast version of this Belgian classic (although the singers doing the no lyrics were Dutch):
