Yesterday marked ten years since The O.C.’s last episode, and so I thought it would be nice to remember the characteristic theme song that is now forever associated with this very successful show.
California was released in 2002 by Phantom Planet, included in the band’s The Guest album. The track was first heard in an episode of the TV series Fastlane, until it was chosen as the title song of The O.C. in 2003. Obviously, it was a great fit for the show, instantly putting Phantom Planet on the map.
Gosh, don’t you miss Seth Cohen?
“California here we come
Right back where we started from”
