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. 
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.
