Wind in your hair, sand between your toes and music in your ear, who doesn’t love the seaside? For all those fun memories and the future ones to come, here’s a selection of great songs inspired by the seaside.


Frightened Rabbit – Swim Until You Can’t See Land
A scene from the 2008 movie The Wackness with Ben Kingsley inspired lead singer Scott Hutchison to write this song: “It’s about losing your mind in order to reset the mind and the body. Forget what’s gone on before and wash it out.“


Mr. Probz – Waves (Robin Schulz Remix)
After Dutch artist Mr. Probz first released Waves, several remixers took a crack at the guitar ballad. Robin Schulz’s breezy, hypnotic dance mix finally sent the song through the roof worldwide.


Smoke City – Underwater Love
A 1997 Levi’s commercial with lots of attractive mermaids helped the song become a hit – three years after being released.


The Lumineers – Dead Sea
Such a sweet compliment! If you are your partner’s Dead Sea, it’s impossible to sink when you’re together. Awww!


R.E.M. – Nightswimming
Written by bassist Mike Mills, this nostalgic song revisits the idyllic childhood memory of when the band would go skinny dipping in their hometown of Athens, Georgia.


Metronomy – The Bay
On the band’s third album, English Riviera, frontman Joseph Mount hones in on the charms of southwest England with The Bay, referring to the city of Torbay, a popular tourist destination.


The Jezabels – Deep Wide Ocean
The deep wide ocean is a great symbol for all those tears we shed after a lost love. But fortunately there is music to keep us going!
