lost and otis redding

LOST has really been rocking on. One thing I found interesting last night is twice they played an Otis Redding song in the background. Rose had one on (I think it was it “Come to Me”) in the car in the snow. Then they closed with “These Arms of Mine”.

Otis Redding died in a plane crash.

Coincidence? Nothing in this show is.

Otis Redding is one of my all-time favorite song writers. He’s actually better known for his writing than his singing, though his most popular song ever was “Sittin’ On the Dock of the Bay” where he’s sitting and just waisting time.

He left his home in Georgia and headed for the ‘Frisco Bay because he had nothing to live for and nothing was going to come his way. He was depressed and done.

Interesting last night’s eppy was about complacency on the island.

    Otis Redding crashed in a Beechcraft, too. Same kind of plane that Ecko’s brother died on.
