AN INEVITABLE* LOST QUERY – So how did the planners of the Dharma Initiative select record albums for their hatch-bound button pushers? This week we heard Otis Redding's first hit single, "These Arms of Mine," being played on the still-working turntable. The 1963 song originally appeared on Otis' Pain in My Heart album but also shows in the late sixties collection History of Otis Redding, which would've been closer to when the Initiate was setting up shop. I like to think that the guy who included the hitherto unknown Geronimo Jackson on the hatch's play list went for the original elpee, though . . .
UPDATE: According to this nifty site tracking music refs in Lost, the Redding song is also briefly heard on a car radio during a Rose & Bernard flashback. Gotta admit I didn't pick up on that . . .
*Inevitable, at least, in my house.
