After having watched the ad for Lost featuring RobertPalmer during the Superbowl I have broken the code for the whole show using the RobertPalmer discography which probably inspired the whole show in the first place. Here we go.
RobertPalmer's first album from 1974 features a song named “From a Whisper to a Scream”. This clearly refers to the whispering in the woods and the fear it represents/inspires. Robert’s 1975 album features “Pressure Drop” referring to the release of the inner atmosphere when the hatch was blown open. Robert’s 1976 effort is loaded with references. “Have Mercy” refers to Jack’s encounter with the Others where he was forced to save Kate. “Some People Can Do What They Like” refers to Michael’s suicidal pursuit of Walt. “Man Smart, Woman Smarter” refers to Shannon’s attitude toward everybody else.
Mr. Palmer’s next album came out in 1978. “Every Kind of People” describes the disparate guests of the island.
The 1979 album inspires the romantic relationships of Lost. “Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor Doctor)” refers to Kate’s troubled relationship with Jack, while “Can We Still be Friends” refers to Boone’s relationship to his half-sister.
In 1980 the song “Sulky Girl” describes every girl on the island. The 1982 song “Some Guys Have All the Luck” refers to Hurley’s run of bad luck. 1983’s “You Are in my System” refers to Walt’s communication through the computer.
1985’s Power Station album featuring RobertPalmer included “Go To Zero” which foreshadows the hatch clock soon going to zero after the button is not pressed in time. This may be the seminal clue since 1985 was also the release of the song that inspired the “Addicted to Lost” commercial. The song was released…or you might say “rerun”…again in 1989, a clear reference to last week’s rerun.
1988’s “Disturbing Behavior” fits Charlie’s recent behavior perfectly. Robert’s next new album was in 1990. Track #13 --- “AEROPLANE”. ‘nuff said. This song was released again on Robert’s 1992 album, re-emphasizing the connection to Lost.
The 1994 album features “You Blow Me Away” which means Michael will be shot by a sniper from the Others. The 1996 album is quite telling. “Living in Fear” is the name of both the album and a song meaning the army jack creates will fail leaving the survivors fearfully awaiting reprisal. 1999’s “I Choose You” means the others will select another survivor for kidnapping. 2003’s “Who’s Fooling Who” means that the Survivors will pull off an elaborate ruse that will capture the others in the hatch.
Unfortunately RobertPalmer’s untimely death precluded him from revealing any additional information in future albums.
There's more! I keep seeing people write that Evangeline is a poor actress, but it all makes sense now. She is under emoting to reference the girls from "Addicted to Love" and . . . umm. . . the other one with the dancing girls in LBD's.
jk, I had no idea RobertPalmer even recorded an album after that one. Cool Theory tho.
Unfortunately, in the room of 12 people with little screamers, it was difficult to make out the whole of the song and or inspect any images during the Superbowl. Your theory makes some great analogies/deductions though. Very nice!
