* WaitingForGodot:
** "Madeleine", in which Brel waits with a flower bouquet for Madeleine, who never comes, yet every week he is standing on the same spot.
** "Zangra", in which a soldier waits for the day he will fight the enemy and become a hero. The day never comes and he goes with pension the very day the enemy invades.

* HypercompetentSidekick: His accordionist Marcel Azzola, one of the best players of the instrument of his time.
