Sea

Fouad Elkoury


I love the sea. When I went there a few days ago it looked a bit like this Fouad Elkoury picture. I always thought it was taken at Sporting. Turns out it was taken at Ajram. same/same…





Nagat al Saghira – Ana Be3shak el Bahr (I adore the sea) – نجاة الصغيرة انا بعشق البحر


I thought of posting the lyrics but then I realized English would really spoil it. It’s just an amazing song.

On the same note…



Grizzly Bear – Deep Blue Sea

You should go and BUY the charity album this song is taken from. It’s called “Dark was the Night” and it’s got great covers by some of the best artists from the Alternative/Indie scene.

And now, we end with a song that probably inspired The Little Mermaid’s “Under the Sea”, at the very least musically and thematically.
I discovered it today. I’ll be listening to it in less than an hour, by the seaside with an ice-cold beer.




Down by the sea
That’s where we wanted to be
With nothing to do

Down by the sea
Don’t tell me that is what
You wanted to do

We sold the house the car the tv the dog
Hopin’ we were on our way

Down by the sea
Don’t tell me that is what
You wanted to do

We had the children in number
John phillip susan alice carol teddy bobby jenny
I think we had one too many

But i hope i’m not out of line

Now it’s forty years after the laughs at the wedding
And i’m dreading retirement what would i do?
The children are married

And now the big question is
Was it all worth it? and who buries who?
You bury me or i bury you?

So down by the seaside
From now until we’re parted
Each day brings us back where we started

Closer to seeing each other much closer
And closer to seeing dream come true
Don’t tell me that isn’t what you wanted to do

    • Awesome Tapes for Africa is seriously awesome.
      The guy’s starting to have some worldwide recognition.
      He’s even playing festivals and creating music and sets with the archive he’s gathered.
      Thanks for the recommendation btw, I loved it

      I left my soul there,
      Down by the sea
      I lost control here
      Living free
