This was also the name of the film of Darin's life starring Kevin Spacey. The interesting thing I learnt in that film that I hadn't realised was that Darin's wife Sandra Dee never remarried.

CHARLES TRENET - LA MER
Charles Trenet was born in France in 1913 and died in 2001. His hit La Mer was also a big hit for Bobby Darin - the anglicized version being 'Beyond the Sea'. La Mer was supposed to have been written on a train during the war in 1943. You can also view a version on You Tube.
