Going For A Song: ‘By The Sea’

Wendy & Bonnie – By The Sea

I was in Brighton this weekend.

Brighton is of course by the sea. And this obviously influenced my decision to choose ‘By The Sea’ for this week’s song.  But what I find curious about this song is that when I listen to it, it doesn’t match to my experience of the sea or the seaside. That’s not to say the song fails, on the contrary, it’s why I like it; something of its sound makes me think of /rethink my recent music experience of the seaside and sea.
