“La Mer” is a song written by French composer, lyricist and singer Charles Trenet. Trenet wrote the lyrics in 1943 on a train while travelling along the French Mediterranean coast. He supposedly finished writing in ten minutes on a piece of toilet paper supplied by the French National Railway Corporation (SNCF). The music was based on a 1938 popular song “Heart and Soul” and Leo Chauliac helped Trenet with the tune. Trenet recorded the song in 1946, which became an unexpected hit and has remained a classic song ever since.
