The source for Bobby Darin's 1960 hit Beyond the Sea was a song by the archetypal French chansonnier Charles Trenet, La Mer, written in 1945. What it lost in poetry when it washed up on American shores, it gained in swing, and was a long standing hit on both continents. #2 on the list of 100 Les Plus Belles Chansons after Brel's Ne Me Quitte Pas

Charles Trenet is the best. Yes, it's mostly a "soft" swing but have you heard him jivin' on Dans le rues de Québec? That man is hot!
