 "Seasons in the Sun" is a very loose English language translation of the song "Le Moribond" by Belgian singer Jacques Brel. It became a worldwide hit in 1974 for Terry Jacks and again in late 1999 and early 2000 for Westlife.

The song is a dying protagonist's farewell to relatives and friends. The original French-language song included references to his wife's infidelity - but these are often missing from the English-language adaptation. Jacks's recording was released in the United States and Canada early in the year, and rose to number one in America by March 2. Earlier recordings had been released by The Kingston Trio, the British band The Fortunesin 1968 and by Pearls Before Swine in 1970/71.
