* AHeroToHisHometown: Ferre is this to Antwerp. His cafe, De Muze, still operates. The townspeople have a phrase; "Drunk as a Grignard"; Ferre used to walk around pissed and barefoot.



* {{Emo}}: On My Dying Bed has some pretty dark lyrics. It's about someone who grew up in a slum and is dying. It also has the recognition of the most 'Dies' said in succession for the time. ''Six''!! Most of his lyrics are this.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: On My Dying Bed. No one saw Ferre on his dying bed. He died in an attic. Alone. Like in the song.
* LighterAndSofter: Side 2 of Captain Disaster.
* IWarnedYou. Open to interpretation.

* GrowingTheBeard: While Ferre's first three albums are pretty good. I Warned You is one of the most well played and written/arranged albums of the late 70s. It also fetches the highest prices on eBay.
** His albums actually get [[EvenBetterSequel better and better]]



* SelfTitledAlbum: No 3. Also the less popular of the 4.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Captain Disaster, although a psychedelic romp wasn't actually written or recorded on drugs. Although Ferre drank copious amounts of alcohol, he never touched drugs. He was just naturally brilliant at writing and recording.

* JohnLennon: Is [[TheXOfY he the Lennon of Belgium]]? Is Lennon the Ferre of England? It doesn't matter! They were both born around 1940 and died at the beginning of the 80s, wrote anti-war + rock 'n' roll music and dressed in a similar fashion.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Side 2 of I Warned You. Side 1 is mainly Ferre's . When you flip the album over the 1st song is a Negro folk cover, the 2nd is an eccentric acoustic piece about snorting cocaine. Dying Bed is VERY dark. The 4th track is a cover of a song about a slave train. Smoozy Punky Baby has a very dark groove. It's about a musician who grew up in a single parent family. He meets a woman but we don't find out what happens to them. I warned you in general is pretty dark compared to the 1st three.
