“Ocean Blue” is a song by ABC released as the fourth single from their album How to Be a…Zillionaire!.
The song’s music video, shot in black-and-white, features lead singer Martin Fry singing the song, intercut with scenes of violinists and the remaining members of the band.
The song peaked at #51 on the UK Singles Chart; the song failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was the only single from the album not to chart on the Hot 100; their next single to chart there would be “When Smokey Sings” the following year.
The single version was re-recorded with drummer David Palmer after the release of the album, also referred to as the “Pacific Mix”.

As clear as an unmuddied lake: Take A Swim
