The Submarine Theme   Saturday, November 13, 2010 (12:34 p.m.) 

One thing Christian didn't mention (perhaps because it's lacking on all the album releases) is the submarine theme lifted straight out of the "Medal of Honor" series. As I watched the show, the first time a submarine appeared, Giacchino used his U-Boat theme from Medal of Honor. He then reused it in the many reappearances of submarines in the show, but not a single one of these variations on the theme made it onto the album - so sad.

They are still great albums, and it's nice that he provides a guide for a "Best of" playlist. It would take years of listening to this music for me to fully appreciate all the best music as opposed to putting together a playlist which would likely just be high volume.

I do disagree with the constant references to other composers, though I won't argue that they don't exist - especially the "Psycho" reference. The traveling (Hollywood and Vines) theme reminds me more of "Canine Conundrum" from "Up" more than it does any John Williams theme.

On one final note, I like the titles of the songs. It's cheesy, but it's fun. Keep it up.

I do believe you can hear the Submarine theme at a couple points during Season 5's "Sawyer Jones and the Temple of Boom" and The Last Episodes' "Sub-Primed" and "SS Lost-tanic."

It appears you are right! Thanks, Will. Unfortunately "The Last Episodes" are still on there way, but I did give "Sawyer" another listen. Odd that I didn't notice the first time. Odder that Christian didn't mention the reference (unless he didn't notice it too, which would be oddest of all).
