2. Lol. Our kids were raised in the Pacific, but when

our daughter and SIL took their Arkansas-raised boys, who only knew scubaing in the comparatively bath-tubby Caribbean, to Santa Monica, they warned them ahead of time not to just race into that water.

Here in Florida, with the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico less than an hour each direction, I can't help considering them sadly inferior to our beloved, magnificent Pacific.

But you were thinking of some reason in particular, right?

7. Expand your horizon -- "Beyond the Sea."

For the record, I thought your post was Duzy material. But I cannot allow Bobby Darin's classic to go unnoticed. From Dick Clark, in 1960:



If you've never seen "Funny Bones," you've missed one of my favorite movies. From the film:

Charles Trenet
Published on Aug 18, 2011

Charles Trenet - La mer (Officiel) [Live Version]

Sur scène et en public, Charles TRENET chante "La mer", accompagné de l'orchestre de Raymond LEFEVRE.


He wrote the song, and (another) version of his with which the film opens:

Funny Bones - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

La Mer (song)



Charles Trenet, La Mer, A side, Columbia Record, March, 1946.jpg

Single by Charles Trenet

"La Mer" ( English: "The Sea" ) is a song credited to French composer, lyricist, singer and showman Charles Trenet. The song was first recorded by the French singer Roland Gerbeau in 1945. It was not until 1946 that Trenet recorded his own version. When it was released in 1946, it became an unexpected hit, and has remained a chanson classic and jazz standard ever since.

Charles Trenet



Charles Trenet in concert, Delorimier Stadium, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, 24 July 1946.

Louis Charles Auguste Claude Trenet (French: [ʃaʁl tʁəne]; 18 May 1913 – 19 February 2001) was a French singer and songwriter. He was most famous for his recordings from the late 1930s until the mid-1950s, though his career continued through the 1990s. In an era in which it was unusual for singers to write their own material, Trenet wrote prolifically and declined to record any but his own songs.

History



Charles Trenet. My heart sings (78 rpm Columbia)



Charles Trenet. La mer (78 rpm Columbia)

Trenet's best-known songs include "Boum!", "La Mer", "Y'a d'la joie", "Que reste-t-il de nos amours?", "Ménilmontant" and "Douce France". His catalogue of songs is enormous, numbering close to a thousand. While many of his songs mined relatively conventional topics such as love, Paris, and nostalgia for his younger days, what set Trenet's songs apart were their personal, poetic, sometimes quite eccentric qualities, often infused with a warm wit[neutrality is disputed].

Some of his songs had unconventional subject matter, with whimsical imagery bordering on the surreal. "Y'a d'la joie" evokes joy through a series of disconnected images, including that of a subway car shooting out of its tunnel into the air, the Eiffel Tower crossing the street and a baker making excellent bread. The lovers engaged in a minuet in "Polka du Roi" reveal themselves at length to be "no longer human": they are made of wax and trapped in the Musée Grévin. Many of his hits from the 1930s and 1940s effectively combine the melodic and verbal nuances of French song with American swing rhythms.

His song "La Mer", which according to legend he composed with Léo Chauliac on a train in 1943, was recorded in 1946. Trenet explained in an interview that he was told that "La Mer" was not swing enough to be a hit, and for this reason it sat in a drawer for three years before being recorded. "La Mer" is Trenet's best-known work outside the French-speaking world, with more than 400 recorded versions. The song was given unrelated English words and under the title "Beyond the Sea" ( or sometimes "Sailing" ), was a hit for Bobby Darin in the early 1960s, and George Benson in the mid-1980s. "Beyond the Sea" was used in the ending credits of Finding Nemo. His "Formidable" was written as impressions of a trip to America.

"La Mer" has been used in many films such as Bernardo Bertolucci's 2003 The Dreamers, the 2010 German film Animals United, and in the closing scene of Mr Bean's Holiday. A Julio Iglesias version plays in the final scene of the 2011 spy film, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. The song was also used in the opening credits of the 2007 film, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, which used the song to highlight the paralysing effects of a stroke that felled his fellow Frenchman, Jean-Dominique Bauby. Both Trenet songs "La Mer" and "Vous qui Passez sans me Voir" were featured prominently in Henry Jaglom's 1971 A Safe Place.[4] It was also used as the opening title song in Steve Martin's L.A. Story in 1991. Other Trenet songs were recorded by such popular French singers as Maurice Chevalier, Jean Sablon and Fréhel.

And Maine lobstah just simply tastes the best, it's the cold water. Take that from a kid raised in Maine and lived at both oceans. I won't even eat rock lobster, no flavor.

Hurricanes are strengthening faster in the Atlantic, and climate change is a big reason why, scientists say 

A startling study says that devastating storms that intensify rapidly are becoming more common.
