Danielle Rousseau included the lyrics to " La Mer ", a song written by French lyricist Charles Trenet — , in her notes on the Island. Since it is a popular French song that was first recorded in the s, Danielle Rousseau was probably familiar with it since childhood. Sayid , wanting to decipher the notes and not knowing French, sought help from Shannon, who'd previously translated the distress signal. Her initial translation sounded like "nonsense" to Sayid, but she later identified the lyrics, recognizing the song from the French dub of Finding Nemo. A boy under her care during her time as an au pair in Paris had repeatedly watched the film, which played "La Mer" over its closing credits. At the end of the episode that features this subplot, Shannon's rendition of the song in French transitions into an instrumental version as part of the episode's score.
Trenet had composed "La Mer" which means "the Sea" with French lyrics. It had some differences to the English-language version that Lawrence later wrote.

When it was released in , it became an unexpected hit, and has remained a chanson classic and jazz standard ever since. Trenet said that he had written an initial version of the song's lyrics as a poem at the age of 16, many years before he came up with a tune for it. That evening they performed it in front of an audience without much of an impact. The song was not recorded before the end of World War II.
