"Hollywood and Vines" is an orchestral piece on the Season One soundtrack. It plays during jungle treks throughout the series and is heard at least once each season, including every finale but one. The piece features a heavy bassline in the low strings while violins play a melody in counterpoint.
Sawyer reads his letter on the beach, smoking a cigarette as his eyes reflect the tragedy within. Seeing some of the survivors going on a hike, he decides to join them. The survivors climb up mountains, attempting to reach higher ground to send a transmission. Together, they help one another to get up a particularly steep section.
