Three quarters of the planet Earth is covered by water. A majority of the planet's solid surface is abyssal plain, at depths between 4,000 and 5,500 metres (13,100 and 18,000ft) below the surface of the oceans. The solid surface location on the planet closest to the centre of the orb is the Challenger Deep, located in the Mariana Trench at a depth of 10,924 metres (35,840ft). Although a number of human activities are conducted underwater—such as research, scuba diving for work or recreation, or even underwater warfare with submarines, this very extensive environment on planet Earth is hostile to humans in many ways and therefore little explored. But it can be explored by sonar, or more directly via manned or autonomous submersibles. The ocean floors have been surveyed via sonar to at least a coarse resolution; particularly-strategic areas have been mapped in detail, in the name of detecting enemy submarines, or aiding friendly ones, though the resulting maps may still be classified.
The album version of the song has a slow, ambient arrangement focused primarily on strings performances. Like nearly all Delerium singles to date since "Silence", the single release put greater emphasis on a number of tranceremixes commissioned by Nettwerk Music Group in order to promote the song through club play.
The music video for the song was directed by directors collective Twobigeyes. It was aired in two different edits, which were set to the Above & Beyond remix (the more common version) and the Rank 1 remix.
"Underwater" is a song by singer-songwriter Mika, released as the album's third single in France, and the second single in Europe from his third studio album, The Origin of Love.
The single peaked at #12 in France. The single will not be released in the United Kingdom, and instead, the single's artwork was adapted for the British equivalent single release, "Origin of Love".
The song was featured in a Swatch Scuba Libre Collection TV Commercial advert, becoming one of the most successful singles.
The music video for the track was released on YouTube on 21 November 2012. It was filmed in Los Angeles during the third week of October, and premiered on 21 November 2012, just two days' before the single's official release.
The music video features Mika out in an ocean of cloth on a small makeshift boat, as he floats around as the waves slowly gets choppier over time, having a burlap sack filled with glowing orbs, however as the waves gets choppier, a rope snaps from the boat, forcing Mika to keep his mast up as it gets worse, some of his treasures fall into the ocean too, as the waves become unstable for the boat, the burlap sack and Mika fall into the ocean, as he then sees sea people who dance around him distracting him, however as they do, the ropes from the mast gets tangled around Mika's body as one of the sea people snatches the burlap sack from Mika, swimming away as Mika "drowns" from being underwater as he sinks downwards.
