1) Genesis "Home by the Sea" (1983). The lyrics of the song are actually not very summery and related to the sea: it talks about a thief, who breaks into a house only to find out that she is haunted. The thief is captured by ghosts, which force him to listen to their stories for the rest of his life.

2) Peter Gabriel "Red Rain" (1986). Again the sea is rather disturbing. In fact, the text was inspired by a recurring dream in which Gabriel swam in a sea of ​​red water. Gabriel explained to the magazine "Mojo" in September 2013: "Red Rain" was written after a dream I had had in which the sea was divided by two walls. There were these glass figures, which screwed into each wall, filled with red blood and then were lowered onto the sand, where they unloaded the blood. I had these extremely vivid dreams that scared me to death. "

3) Mike + The Mechanics "Beggar on a Beach of Gold" (1995). The beach is a metaphor, also underlined by the cover, in which Mike is sitting barefoot on an expanse of gold coins. As if to say that it is about appreciating what we have here and now and not looking for what we cannot get anyway. Appreciate what we have, even the little things.

4) Phil Collins "Too Many Fish in the Sea" (2010). It is a hit song from 1964 recorded by the singing group Motown The Marvelettes. It was the group's first hit, in the top 40 for almost a year, reaching number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was one of the first hit singles written by Norman Whitfield and Eddie Holland. It was also the first single produced by Whitfield. In 2010 Phil Collins inserted it in "Going Back", her eighth studio solo album, with cover of the Motown of the 60s and soul standards. "Too Many Fish in the Sea" was given a free preview to new users registered on the renewed Phil website. Then he was part of the bonus tracks of the DVD and of "The Essential Going Back", a reissue released on June 10, 2016. Here too the fish of the title are a metaphor.

5) Ray Wilson "Song for a Friend" (2016). In the song Ray he lets himself go to the memories: "If you look over there, that's where I was born". The song is based on simple flashes of memories about his mother: "She was just the best mom in the world", which is compared to the fresh and clear sea air.

6) Steve Hackett "Loving Sea" (2015). Steve explained it in this video, published on July 26, 2020:

7) Anthony Phillips "The Sea and the Armadillo" (1984). It is part of the album "Private Parts and Pieces IV: A Catch at the Tables", Ant's ninth studio work and fourth chapter of his "Private Parts & Pieces" series. The piece is instrumental. In the album, between sea and lake ("Down Over The Lake"), water is very present, even on the cover:

1) "The scattered pages of a book by the sea ....". In Can-Utility And The Coastliners from the "scattered pages of a book on the sea, held in the sand, washed by the waves" a reference to the legend of Canute the Great (King Canute), king of Denmark, England and Norway in the XNUMXth century , who had the power to move the tides. The legend is in fact known as "King Canute And The Tide".

2) Mama is based on David Niven's book "The Moon's A Balloon". Phil Collins read it and was impressed. It is the story of a boy who falls in love with a prostitute much older than him, but who does not reciprocate him.

3) The song was inspired by the works of the American poet Anne Sexton, who wrote one play theatrical entitled Mercy Street and a poem entitled "45 Mercy Street". "The text of this song is a dedication to the work and life of Anne Sexton, who captures the poetry and research of the great American author with very few traits." Source: poetarumsilva.com.

4) to title track of 24 minutes is based on the 1965 novel "Smallcreep's Day" by Peter Currell Brown which tells the story of a certain Mr. Smallcreep. It is an ironic, comic, but macabre and savage attack on the alienated life of modern man. Rutherford has adapted it so that it has a positive ending.

5) The song Tarka is based on "Tarka the otter ", a 1927 story by Henry Williamson, which tells of the birth, life and tragic death of the otter Tarka. Anthony Phillips composed it together with Harry Williamson, musician and son of the author of the novel.

6) A Curious Feeling by Tony Banks is inspired by the 1966 novel Flowers for Algernon. During the recording of the album Tony became aware of a musical, also based on the book. Thinking it would be a big hit, Tony tried to change the theme of the album, but most references to Flowers for Algernon remain.

7) Steve Hackett: «Walking Through Walls is based on a dream I had after reading a book by Carlos Castaneda». Source: hackettsongs.com. And indeed the song is full of amazing images and reflections on humanity's madness and one of Steve's first protest songs.
