Note from the producers
How many television shows can you identify just by hearing the music? Very few. The fact that LOST is one of them is a testament to the amazing talents of Michael Giacchino. Michael created music for LOST that was unlike any we'd ever heard for a TV show or movie before it. It quickly became so indelible that his music didn't just compliment the show - it defined it.
Listening to these discs, the range of emotions conveyed in Michael's work is truly incredible. From cues that are urgent and intense as the characters explore the island, to skin-tingling mystery cues as they try to unlock the island's secrets. Michael's deeply emotional scores still bring tears to our eyes even after dozens of listens. Occasionally, the show is even funny, and Michael nails that too. It's impossible for us to imagine LOST without Michael as our collaborator. As Hans Christian Anderson once said, "Where words fail, music speaks." And for each and every episode of the show, Michael Giacchino's music did exactly that.
Juliet dies in Sawyer's arms. At the foot of the statue, Bram grows impatient waiting for "Locke" to reemerge from inside. He takes four men inside the statue where the Man in Black transforms into the Monster and kills them all.
Dogen opens Hurley's guitar case to find a large ankh. Dogen then promptly smashes the Egyptian symbol, revealing a slip of paper hidden inside. Dogen reads it and asks for each of the survivors' names. Hurley demands to know what the paper says and Lennon tells him that it says they all will be in trouble if Sayid dies.
Kate and Claire's Sideways theme. Kate prepares to change into Claire's clothes in a mechanic's bathroom, but when she opens her bag, she discovers a picture of the pregnant woman she had kicked out of the cab and a stuffed whale. Kate realizes her mistake and decides to go back for her.
I really want to thank my team - Andrea Datzman, Chad Seiter, Tim Simonec, Dan Wallin, Steve Davis, Alex Levy, Paul Apelgran, Reggie Wilson, Connie Boylan, Booker White, Marshall Bossen, Cheryl Foliart, and especially Dave Craftsman. You guys were, are and always will be, fantastic to work with.
At 7 minutes, 54 seconds, "Moving On" is the longest track on this soundtrack.
The score, unlike past musical releases, is not entirely chronological with its songs and their order on the album. For example, "Temple and Spring", a piece which plays after Sayid's death, is three songs ahead of "Coffin Calamity", a piece from when the survivors ventured under the temple wall with a still-living Sayid.
