I heard it for the first time on KEXP in 2008 and it really resonated with where I was at in my life. I've loved it ever since.

Been a long time listener and love your music as a born & raised West Seattleite. Living in the Midwest for the last 3 years and listening to your show every morning at work is what helps me feel so connected to the community I love and miss dearly. Thank you for having a continued positive impact on me and for reminding me I’m not alone always.
Please if you have time play: this is the sea - the waterboys. Fell in love with that song from your shows and would be a great addition to my morning!

Mike Scott began writing the songs for This Is the Sea in the spring of 1984. Scott recalls that in December 1984, "during The Waterboys' first American tour, he bought two huge hard-bound books... in which to assemble his new songs." For the following two months Scott worked on the songs in his apartment, writing the lyrics, and working on guitar and piano arrangements. Scott wrote between 35 and 40 songs, but felt that the nine songs that made it onto the album "were the ones that were intended to be there."
