Bobby Darin – The Artist

Bobby Darin (1936 – 1973) was an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, impressionist, and actor in film and television. He performed jazz, pop, rock and roll, folk, swing, and country music. He started his career as a songwriter for Connie Francis. He recorded his first million-selling single, “Splish Splash”, in 1958. That was followed by “Dream Lover”, “Mack the Knife”, and “Beyond the Sea”, which brought him worldwide fame. In 1962 he won a Golden Globe Award for his first film, Come September, co-starring his first wife, actress Sandra Dee.

La Mer (Beyond The Sea) – The Song

‘La Mer (Beyond The Sea)’ is a 1945 contemporary pop romantic love song by Jack Lawrence, with music taken from the song “La Mer” by Charles Trenet. Trenet had composed “La Mer” (which means “the Sea”) with French lyrics. It had some differences to the English-language version that Lawrence later wrote. Trenet’s French version was a homage and ode to the changing moods of the sea, while Lawrence, by just adding one word “Beyond” to the title, gave him the start whereby he made the song into a love song. “Beyond the Sea” has been recorded by many artists, but this version by Bobby Darin released in late 1959 is the best known by many, reaching the top ten in both the UK and the US in singles Chart in early 1960.

The Mermaid – The Shape

This record has been crafted into the silhouette of a mermaid. In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Asia, and Africa.In ancient Assyria, the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. Mermaids are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks, and drownings. In other folk traditions they can be benevolent or beneficent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.
The male equivalent of the mermaid is the merman, also a familiar figure in folklore and heraldry. Although traditions about and sightings of mermen are less common than those of mermaids, they are generally assumed to co-exist with their female counterparts. The male and the female collectively are sometimes referred to as merfolk or merpeople.
