{{ep}} }} "'''You All Everybody'''" is the sole hit song by the band Drive Shaft. The lyrics and music were (in the show) composed by Charlie Pace. ==Lyrics== {{quote=You all, everybody
You all, everybody
Acting like you're stupid people
Wearing expensive clothes
You all, everybody
You all, everybody
You all, everybody}} ==Origins== Early on in production, the show's creators knew Charlie would sing "that Drive Shaft song," though they hadn't yet written it. Dominic Monaghan and a friend composed a song called "Photos and Plans" but the show's creators rejected it. They eventually based the song on an inside joke within the Lost producers' circle of friends. Years earlier, on an episode of ''wikipediaThe Phil Donahue Show'', a female audience member said, "You all everybody is acting like it's the stupid people wearing the expensive clothes. And they not!" Bryan Burk and Damon Lindelof often repeated this line while editing videos, laughing at how nonsensical it was. Eventually, in a "delirious stupor," they decided to make the line into the Drive Shaft song's lyrics. The original script for {{ep}} used the exact line.http//www.spoilertv.co.uk/images/archived-old-shows/lost/Misc/Scripts/Episode%201.06%20-%20The%20Moth/Lost_1x06_-_The_Moth28.png.php SpoilerTV.co.uk ''The Moth'' Script, Scene 18 The song's melody began with Dominic Monaghan's improvised humming while filming {{ep}}. Songwriters WikipediaJude (singer)WikipediaChris Seefried combined the lyrics and melody. {{crossref}} The final song bears a striking resemblance to the song "Rock n' Roll Star" by Oasis, the real band which served as a model for Drive Shaft. The chorus of the song also strongly resembles the melody of the chorus heard in Bob Welch's "Ebony Eyes". ==Appearances within the show== Charlie heard the song on the radio for the first time when a flat tire stopped the band's van on the way to a gig. {{crossref}} The band later regularly performed their hit at larger gigs, and Liam would occasionally sing Charlie's lines. {{crossref}} When the group's popularity waned, they performed a version called "You All Every Butties" for Butties Diapers. {{crossref}} Record stores, however, continued to stock the track. Hurley and Johnny listened to it in a store one day, and they tried to sing along, though they didn't know the lyrics. {{crossref}} Soon after Charlie crashed on the Island, he sang the song for Kate to reveal his rock star history. {{crossref}} Dominic Monaghan improvised a harmony, imitating wikipediaPrice and wikipediaBeck's high falsettos. In later appearances, the song sounded considerably different. {{crossref}} He sang it in the Looking Glass station to cover up his conversation with Desmond. {{crossref}} In a flash sideways, the song played on the radio in Desmond Hume (flash-sideways timeline)'s car and Charlie Pace (flash-sideways timeline)'s "first" hit. The nonsensical lyrics attained meaning for the first time, playing as Charlie mocked Desmond Hume (flash-sideways timeline)'s superficial lifestyle. {{crossref}} ==Influence== Several ''Lost'' fans have named creations after "You All Everybody". Gatsbys American Dream used the title for their self-titled CD's opening track, and a ''Lost'' tribute band named themselves after the song. http//www.myspace.com/youalleverybodyband Fan podcast Unofficial podcasts.2FThe Others Are Coming, and former podcast Unofficial podcasts used the name for their listener feedback section. The song plays at a party on an January 2005 episode of ''Alias'', another of executive producer J.J. Abrams's shows. ''Alias'' s04e03 "The Awful Truth". The song is currently available on the Rock Band Network download service as a playable track for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 games Rock Band & Rock Band 2. ==Song== The song chords is played as following Intro B------ E--B------ E-- Chorus B---E B---E C, please note the whole song is played as power chords. == See also == *Backstage with Drive Shaft ==References== ==External links== *http//www.driveshaftband.com/ Drive Shaft website *http//www.driveshaftband.com/YouAllEverybodyVideo.zip Music video to "You all Everybody" *http//www.driveshaftband.com/YouAllEverybodyAudio.zip .mp3 file from "You all Everybody" *http//www.myspace.com/youalleverybodyband You All Everybody The LOST tribute band
