LOST on an Oasis
I found it pretty ironic that during LOST last night during Desmond's flashback they showed Charlie playing the guitar on a street corner. The song Charlie is playing is Wonderwall by Oasis. It is ironic because the chorus is:
You're gonna be the one who saves me?
And after all You're my wonderwall "
As you find out at the end of the story, Desmond can see the future? Cheesy in my opinion. But Desmond keeps doing things to save Charlie including setting up the antenna to get the lightning and also swimming out to save Claire because if Charlie did it he would have drowned. So it is ironic that Charlie in the flashback is singing this song since Desmond ends up being his wonderwall.
Now the Oasis connection does not end there. Remember Charlie is in DriveSHAFT with his brother Liam. Oasis is fronted by the band-bashing, often arguing brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher. Starting to see the connection? DriveSHAFT was also formed in Manchester England, same place as Oasis. And like the Gallagher brothers, there was drug addiction and hard partying.
