Claire's Music Box

Still trying to figure out the relevance of introducing that music box that Christian specifically wanted Claire to have.

When Jack and Claire were looking at themselves in the mirror, I immediately thought of the scene in the lighthouse where Jack saw the mirrors, but I really couldn't think of any connection.

FWIW, according to the closed caption, the song the music box was playing was "Catch A Falling Star". Here are the lyrics:

Catch a falling star an’ put it in your pocket,
Never let it fade away!
Catch a falling star an’ put it in your pocket,
Save it for a rainy day!

For love may come an' tap you on the shoulder,
Some star-less night!
Just in case you feel you wanna’ hold her,
You’ll have a pocketful of starlight!

Catch a falling star an’ ( Catch a falling . . . )
put it in your pocket,
Never let it fade away! ( Never let it fade away! )
Catch a falling star an’ ( Catch a falling . . . )
put it in your pocket,
Save it for a rainy day! ( Save it for a rainy day! )

For love may come and tap you on the shoulder,
Some star-less night!
An’ just in case you feel you wanta’ hold her,
You’ll have a pocketful of starlight! ( . . . pocketful of starlight! )

Catch a falling star an’ ( Catch a falling . . . )
put it in your pocket,
Never let it fade away! ( Never let it fade away! )
Catch a falling star an’ ( Catch a falling . . . )
put it in your pocket,
Save it for a rainy day! ( Save it for a rainy . . . Save it for a rainy, rainy rainy day! )

For when your troubles startn’ multiplyin’,
An' they just might!
It’s easy to forget them without tryin’,
With just a pocketful of starlight!

Catch a falling star an’ ( Catch a falling . . . )
put it in your pocket,
Never let it fade away! ( Never let it fade away! )
Catch a falling star an’
put it in your pocket,
Save it for a rainy day! ( Save it for rainy day! )
Save it for a rainy day!

Re: Claire's Music Box

It reminded me of Rousseau's music box.

We know Christian sang to Claire when she was a baby. However, she claims in the AU that she never met him. That's kind of weird.

Re: Claire's Music Box

This is the song she wants Aaron's adoptive parent's to sing to him. I also think it's played in a scene after the temple people are all killed.

Re: Claire's Music Box

I'm not sure about the significance, either. I guess the song is just another anchor between the timelines—maybe it'll have something to do with Claire getting memories of the island.

Catch a Falling Star was the song that Christian use to sing to her (as Lostaway mentioned), and she later wanted Aaron's adoptive parents-to-be to sing it to him. Kate sung it to Aaron off-island. And when she was captured in the temple, Claire was humming it to herself.

edit: what Randy Nations, Mr. Cluck's extraordinairre, said. The site's a bit slow right now and I missed that post.

I think it was the same one that almost drove Deanna Troi crazy.

Shoot the old guy!

It was also the song that the mobile in (what was to be) Aaron's crib was playing in the Dharma medical station when Claire was kidnapped.
