Song Description

Inspired by a past holiday to the eastern mediterranean which failed to live up to expectation and marketing hype! Covers the initial anticipation created by the brochure and TV ad, and excitement of packing, the disappointment of the reality, commercialisation and westernisation, the power of clever marketing which keeps the dream alive for many more unsuspecting holidaymakers.

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by a past holiday to the eastern mediterranean which failed to live up to expectation and marketing hype!

Lyrics

The Blue Sparkling Sea


The blue sparkling sea
Looked all it was meant to be
Glistening inthe brochure
Brought to life by the TV

Full of eastern promise
That far off Holy Land
The mysteries of the Orient
The boy waving from the sand

And now just a week to go
Moving closer all the time
Amidst the chaos still the dream
Of the blue sparkling sea


But the blue sparkling sea
Wasn't all it was meant to be
An air of disappointment
And the disappointing air

Full of western dollars
That far off Holy Land
The mysteries of the Orient
Lying trampled in the sand

But the marketers have earned their fee
Targets reached for another year
And still they come with dreams intact
Of the blue sparkling sea
