LOST – The Music Behind The Mystery

So yeah, I’m a huge Lost fan.

HUGE!

OMFG!!! LOST IS LIKE, THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER IN THE HISTORY OF AMAZING THINGSS!!!

(waits for you to leave this page…)

Sorry about that.

Anyway, on to serious business. I won’t bore you to tears going into details about my inner anguish at the fact that the series finale of Lost is tonight. Instead I’ll share with you just one of the many reasons why this show is so dear to me: The soundtrack.

Mmmm…absurdity, it’s delicious to my ears ;)

The mastermind behind the haunting and beautiful music of Lost is composer Michael Giacchino.

I’m not very good at providing flowery descriptions of songs or anything. I like to let music speak for itself. In this case, there’s a whole lot of it. Over the years, the music of Lost has been released as a series of soundtrack albums, with each album corresponding to a season of the show. Now, instead of posting a bunch of videos or music players for each song I like, I went ahead and put my favorite of these soundtrack albums (Season 3) into one playlist, along with my personal Lost favorite, “Life and Death”, at the end.

So go ahead! Listen to as little, or as much, as you want to.

WATCH the series finale of LOST tonight at 9pm EST on ABC!!!

Thank you :]

Kseniya Simonova / Apocalyptica / Metallica

Kseniya Simonova

I know this has probably been everywhere, but I just HAD to post it in case any of you haven’t seen this. Some amazing sand animation by Ukrainian artist Kseniya Simonova, with musical accompaniment. I don’t listen to nearly as much “traditional”, I guess you could say, music as I should; so I don’t know most of the songs used in this (still researching :P) but I can tell you that the music for the last 2 minutes of the video is from “Nothing Else Matters” by Apocalyptica. If that title looks familiar it’s because the song is a cello cover of “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica.
