“The song by British singer-songwriter Chris Rea was released in 1986 as the second single from his 8th studio album “On the Beach”. This reached No. 57 in the UK. In 1988 Rea re-recorded "On the Beach" for his album “New Light Through Old Windows” and this version reached No. 12 in the UK and No. 18 in Ireland. In 1989, it got to No. 9 on the US Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.
The song was inspired by the Spanish island Formentera off the coast of Ibiza. Rea is quoted as saying "That's where me and my wife became me and my wife. That's what it's about. Yeah, I was "between the eyes of love." It's a lovely island if ever you're in Europe". (Rea and his wife, Joan, have been a couple since 1968).
