Walk to the bottom of the sea - The Franciscans Lighthouse - Ocie Smith In fact, I'm sure both tracks use exactly the same sea/seagull sound effects!   

^^^ Already mentioned The Franciscans in the 3rd post. Or like the waves, did that one wash over you? ??

The OP wanted songs with sound effects that are sounds of the sea.  There are none in The Marvelettes' song, nor Joe Simon's song. and none in The Mark IV's song, none in Bob James', and probably none in the rest of the songs you listed.

Paragons -  tide is high

I heard NO "sounds of the sea" in The Tide is High".  Again, the OP asked for sound effects, - buoy bells, foghorns, seagulls, waves crashing and the like.  Same for the hit 45 version of Otis Redding's "Sitting on The Dock of the Bay".  I can't speak for any alternate takes/LP versions.

It might not start with "sounds of the sea" but, the Shangrilas' "Remember (Walkin' In The Sand)" has plenty of seagulls in the middle and

at the end of the song.

Robb You've got to give me Dock of the Bay. It's not right up front in the mix but definitely there.

Just checked it to Wikipedia: " After Redding's death, Cropper mixed "Dock of the Bay" at Stax Studios. He added the sound of seagulls and waves crashing to the background, as Redding had requested, recalling the sounds he heard when he was staying on the houseboat."

Just tried my 45, the version on "The Complete Stax Singles 1959- 1968" and the version on "Atlantic Rhythm and Blues 

1947- 74"  and all three versions open with crashing waves . I doubt if all three were alternate versions.

I've never heard that version.  They only played the original 45 version while I was listening.

Sorry.  I played it again.  It's very faint at the very beginning of the song.  I am somewhat hard of hearing, so I missed it completely, before.  I turned up the volume to very high.  :rofl:

That would be George 'N Sonny Sands.  You must have Motown or The Chicago Sound on the mind.   And, yes, I hear the simulated "waves' sound (although not very convincing as ocean waves).

I listened to the entire Fluffy Falana song, and I didn't hear ANY ocean sound effects.  I thought it is strange to hear a man's voice, who is called "Fluffy Falana".  I thought I've heard that artist before, and she was a woman.  Am I remembering incorrectly?

 

I think it is also interesting that Bobby Martin operated out of New York, and George Kerr wrote a song for New York's Jobete Music office in late 1963, a song with a very similar title. (Come With Me to) "My Little CABIN by The Sea".  I've heard the Jobete Music acetate of it, and I believe it is George Kerr, himself, singing it.  The song is not the same song as Martins (actually bears no resemblance, other than the title and gist of the "story").

I went back and played "Dock of The Bay" again, really loud, and I did hear the "waves" at the beginning.

My Little Cottage (BY THE SEA) - maybe off topic a bit.
