Beyond the Sea (La Mer) - A song fitting for a rainy week in Los Angeles
The original French version "La Mer" (written in 1945), performed live by Charles Trenet, with English subtitles. Such a beautiful, poetic song.
Bobby Darin's 1960 hit and English/swing version, "Beyond the Sea".
For LOST fans, this video combines the French and English versions. "Somewhere beyond the sea...there is an island."
