BBC Children in Need

Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice of the Spice Girls) is recording a version of Downtown for the BBC Children In Need [1] as the charities official single this year. Spooky co-incidence. -- Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  01:51, 20 October 2006 (PDT)

And what a horrible version it was lol --lewisg 14:36, 9 January 2007 (PST)

I'll always think of Lost...

I'll always think of Lost now when I hear this song. I've always thought it was a catchy tune, but now it is special. Thanks!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:NateTut (talkcontribs) .

Lyrics that foreshadow the 'purgatory'?

How can you lose?
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go
Downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown, no finer place for sure,
Downtown, everything's waiting for you

Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossanova
You'll be dancing with 'em, too, before the night is over
Happy again
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go
Downtown where all the lights are bright,
Downtown, waiting for you tonight,
Downtown, you're gonna be alright now

  • And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
  • Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
  • Guide them along

So, maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares and go
Downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown, don't wait a minute more,
Downtown, everything's waiting for you

I don't think this was intentional since the music was apparently changed at the last minute and this was really early in the show but I'm certainly not mistaking coincidence for fate here. It may not have been intentional but I found it cool. The three lines I bullet pointed in particular remind me of Desmond and Hurley in the Flash Sideways, all the others remind me of the church scene with everyone happy.

Wow. Of course Purgatory extends the show-wide theme of going somewhere new and finding understanding. But the lyrics suit Purgatory better than any other part of the show. --- Balk Of Fametalk 08:52, May 26, 2010 (UTC)
