His lyrics are just so...

But.. hey, have any reccommendations from your own country of things we might not know???
Isn't Neil Young Canadian? Definitely give Nick Drake a try, from the UK side, if you've not come across him yet.

Technically he's Canadian. But he's lived in the U.S. since 1966, some three-quarters of his life, does 90% of his recording in the U.S., owns land in California and somewhere in the Midwest as well, so at this point keeping his Canadian passport is just a conversation piece.

If you want to hear about songs originally written in French, you might want to listen to Bowie's covers of Jaques Brel's "Ma Mort" (My Death) and "Amsterdam".
"The Boss" isn't so bossy here - Neil Young definitely taking the lead!
How Neil Young makes a guitar sound so godawful bad, and yet so very right, is an eternal mystery.
