Lost

This song has appeared two times in Lost:

  • "The Long Con" - Hurley and Sayid were trying to find a signal on the Arrow radio, and instead found a radio station with the call sign WXR which was playing the song. Sayid mentioned that the radio could be picking up signals from anywhere in the world. Hurley cleverly responds "Or any time. Just kidding, dude."
  • "A Tale of Two Cities" - Jack heard it on his car radio, while Jack watched Sarah with her new man.

Trivia

  • In The Twilight Zone episode "Static", an old man picks ups a live radio signal from 20 years in the past, a DJ introducing this song. He also picks up other broadcasts from the 30's and 40's. However only the old man can hear the song, while other characters only perceive static. He attempts to correct mistakes he has made in his life using this knowledge. This could be the basis for Hurley's humorous quip. [1]
  • Glenn Miller disappeared on December 15, 1944, en route from England to Paris to play for troops in the recently liberated city. Neither his remains nor the aircraft in which he was riding were ever found.

Lyrics

I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight.
I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night.
The roses are sighing a Moonlight Serenade.

The stars are aglow and tonight how their light sets me dreaming.
My love, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you and sing you a Moonlight Serenade.

Let us stray till break of day
in love's valley of dreams.
Just you and I, a summer sky,
a heavenly breeze kissing the trees.

So don't let me wait, come to me tenderly in the June night.
I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight,
a love song, my darling, a Moonlight Serenade.
