Lost "Everybody Loves Hurley": Wondrous Boat Ride

One of my favorite things about this last season of Lost, oddly enough, is the music backing the previews for the next week's episodes. Previously, we've heard Leonard Cohen's "Bird on a Wire" and this week it was "Wondrous Boat Ride" from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, a scene that used to give me nightmares* as a kid:

Its inclusion here probably speaks to the recent chatter that Jacob's adventurous search for an heir was a lot like the one Willy Wonka put on in his factory.
There's no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There's no knowing where we're rowing
Or which way the river's flowing
Some may remember that the original cut of the film had headless chickens that were understandably edited out later thanks to the reaction from kids like me.
