Music to cook by in August is all about the beach, the sea (blue….), and just lazing around in general.
So, feeling lazy? Just buy the album Beyond the Sea – a compilation which includes such greats as Nina Simone, Dean Martin, Sarah Vaughan, and Ella Fitzgerald.
Otherwise here are some other suggestions as well as Madeleine Peyroux singing Blue Alert, Moonlight Benjamin with a song for Agwé, the Spirit of the Sea, Joan Shelley with First of August, and Billie Eilish with Ocean Eyes:
