In The New Lost In Space They Listen To Van Halen In The Future

With thanks to the new Lost In Space we know the future will be fine … at least musically. In the year 2046 on another planet on the other side of the universal in another galaxy, they still listen to Van Halen when they hoon.

In episode 6 of the new reboot Major Don West is flooring the Chariot with Van Halen’s ‘Panama’ blaring.

Van Halen’s ‘Panama’ was released on the ‘1984’ album of 1984. The song was the third single off the album. David Lee Roth has said ‘Panama’, a song about a racing car, the Panama Express.

As Lost In Space is set in 2046, that would make the song 62 years old at the time Don West is playing it while lost in space.

62 years back from now is 1956 so maybe Van Halen’s ‘Panama’ isn’t totally off the planet. If we go back exactly 56 years the biggest hit on the planet was ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, the first hit song for that new kid on the block Elvis Presley.

‘Lost In Space’ featured another classic song in episode one. In the opening moments of the new show The Robinsons are playing cards listening to Dobie Gray’s ‘Drift Away’.

Fans of the original 60s series should also pay attention to the closing minutes of episode 1 of the new ‘Lost In Space’. You never know who might make a cameo.
