Subject: LIsten to the ocean
From: R.Shrigley@rhbnc.ac.uk
Date: 29 Apr 98 - 08:21 AM

Does anyone remember Nina & Frederik? Scandinavian folk singers active in the '60s. They recorded a ?West Indian song "Listen to the ocean" that almost made the pop top 40 charts in the '60s. Does anyone know the words or a source thereof or a currently available recording of it (by anyone)? Or the original source? I've tried web lyric & record sources without success. I can only recall one line "Listen to the ocean, echoes of a million seashells".

For what little its worth.... I think the next phrase was ".. forever in motion, moving to a ...."

Maybe we can reassemble it collectively!

Subject: Lyr Add: LISTEN TO THE OCEAN (Moller, Pallandt)
From: Roger Shrigley
Date: 14 Jul 98 - 06:58 AM

OK Martin, here goes:

LISTEN TO THE OCEAN
(Nina Moller & Frederik Pallandt)

CHORUS: Listen to the ocean,echoes of a million seashells
Forever it's in motion
Moving to a rhythmic and unwritten music
That's played eternally

There's a world of sun and sand
Full of sky and far from land
Where evening breezes caress the shore like a gentle comforting hand
Fragrant blossoms, honey bees
Careless laughter upon the breeze
And lovers fading to pools of deep purple shadows among the trees

CHORUS

The sound of a seagull's distant cry
His wings like parentheses drawn in the sky*
And two white birds clinging like foam to the crest of a wave rolling by
The silent of noon, the glamour of night
The heat of the day when the fish won't bite
These are the things that remind me of the day you sailed out of sight

CHORUS

* I assume continental style < > rather than "" ! to make sense! RMS
(Paul van Lawick can supply it in MP3 format)

Nina, of Nina & Frederik, was (and this is truly taxing to my memory) involved in some strange scandal I think. Did it have something to do with Andy Williams? Or the death of his wife, a French lady, under unique circumstances? Whew, when your memory goes, forget it!

If you hold a cardboard toilet paper tube to your ear, you can hear the toilet flush!!! ;-)

This is where I came in! My first venture on to the Mudcat two years ago was trying to track this down. Things have just come full circle. I had the words, but not the recording, but didn't give up. This week while on Amazon checking book details I decided to investigate "zshops", did a search on this song and found a UK site with the vinyl 45rpm available at a reasonable price and an honest description of condition.
So, those 'Catters who complain if they don't get instant successful response to queries- it sometimes takes time and a little more work by ourselves!
The site that supplied it claims "5,000 rare and reasonably priced records online" is called thespacebar and is at

Nice to see this old nugget surfacing again. I have often sung this song round barbecues and brys on beaches - it's a good audience filter you have to be a certain age to remember it!

I have always sung "the silence of noon, the clamour of night" which seems to make more sense.

Must try and find a record of it!

Thanks for the memories

Alan, I'm sure your reading is right, probably my fumble finger typing. N & F don't seem to be available on CD and I couldn't trace any of their LPs on secondhand record sites with this track on, so I was pleased to find the EP.
