Hey Hey Hey Hey – its @scaryb !
Great to see you back on the boards (even if its intermittent!).
[lyrics aren’t meaningful, but the title made me smile and its just one helluva choon!!]3 June 2017 at 22:33 #584413 June 2017 at 23:01 #58443toinfinityandbepond @toinfinityandbepond4 June 2017 at 14:20 #584965 June 2017 at 22:15 #58598
I’ve been going through my music and though lots popped up, when listening to them, there isn’t that sense of “ah – that sums up the episode!”.
So, I have one I posted before which is… interesting and always a great tune so doing it again (apologies).
Although if only the Monks had been more ‘wiped out; then this may’ve been better.5 June 2017 at 22:43 #58600
While I was going through tunes I came across this one again.
Its something I posted before (for whatever reason) but when a few seconds in I didn’t skip it for something else.
I listened through and then went looking for another version to the one I originally posted.
And I found this version.
And, maybe its just that what happened in London Bridge last weekend and having worked in that area over the years, and not knowing if friends were ok for a few hours (they’re fine) but… I dunno.
Maybe I just needed to feel some love or whatever.
Maybe its indulgent of me but… this just feels right.
Forgive me if you feel it inappropriate (its not meant to be).
Regardless, tell someone tomorrow (or today if its the morning) that you love them. Maybe that’d be too heavy – so maybe just hug them, or make them tea or laugh at their joke. Or send them an email.8 June 2017 at 18:37 #58739
Nothing to do with episodes but:
GO OUT AND BUY THEA GILMORE’S NEW ALBUM NOW! I posted The War, the teaser track, a while back but the standout tracks are Slow Fade To Black and Rise (which is just sublime) – but rather annoyingly neither have been youtubed yet. So have two of the best covers I have ever heard.
And this:8 June 2017 at 22:03 #58752
Those are great covers!
I always think a truly great cover is when the person singing it sounds like they’re the only person that could’ve sung it; and/or if they’ve translated it into another musical genre and show something new about the song.
Which (for me) a folk version of Ever Fallen in Love.. does. It makes it tender.
Coincidentally I’ve been looking for a Bowie song for The Lie of The Land and have been trying not to use the one that someone (rightly) suggested for the previous episode.
But…. Toby Whithouse is obviously an appalling writer in that he hasn’t given me
usan obvious Bowie reference!!
So, here’s Nirvana…8 June 2017 at 22:08 #587548 June 2017 at 22:09 #58756
I’m sure I’ve posted this before but can’t find it in my ‘done this don’t post again’ list.
But I loved it when I first heard it; I assumed it was a very faithful version of an original, but can’t find a version its that faithful to (eg Weavers).
Maybe its just that I love the banjo in this.
**WARNING – this has nothing to do with Dr Who and nothing to do with SPOILERS as I don’t go to that thread and am simply lonely waiting for everyone to come back into the main room…….**

@whisht – It might seem like there must be a vast amount of major revelations being leaked over there but we’re mostly just theorising about Xmas future…8 June 2017 at 22:58 #58763PhaseShift @phaseshiftTime Lord
I’ve just got back from the NE and was surprised by the number of spoiler thread comments myself. I’ll be back to post some thoughts on the last couple of episodes tomorrow, but I’m currently laughing at the notion that Theresa May may have just ‘won’ a hung Parliament. Delightful (but being realistic, unlikely).
Anyways, a while back you @blenkinsopthebrave and @arbutus had a conversation about the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. I can only echo @blenkinsopthebrave s thoughts on Viv Stanshall, but just add that the band had another genius in the form of Neil Innes. I was delighted to find out that a large amount of his solo work from ‘The Innes Book of Records’ has been uploaded to YouTube.
So, on the subject of Elections, here is Neil on the subject of apathy:
And a thought on the nature of democracy by a much older Neil:9 June 2017 at 01:25 #58764Anonymous @

@nick I used to have this on youtube -the actual interview, now it’s stuck in a number of hour long Bowie facts:
In the wake of its release, Bowie bemoaned the fact that when he performed the number himself he would encounter “kids that come up afterwards and say, ‘It’s cool you’re doing a Nirvana song.’ And I think, ‘Fuck you, you little tosser!‘”
This is why I said what I did to @whisht who, you know, hopefully knows I’m joking!
Puro 😀9 June 2017 at 10:07 #58775
@Thane15 – Puro, you know I don’t have a sense of humour.
Once I stop weeping from the hurt, I’ll gather my thoughts, before throwing them out of my pram.
EDIT: hmmm….. just noticed that my avatar kinda contradicts this…

As a break from politics and everything else, I thought I’d post this. My cousin who lives in America posted it on Facebook as we both had deaf grandparents.
It isn’t a fantastic piece of music but to me it’s a very heartwarming clip. And it does kinda echo the “In a population of 7 million there’s you” or whatever the quote was regarding Bill.
Just a pity you can see Simon Cowell’s eyes fill with dollar signs. But try to take it for what it is and just enjoy. It made my Mum cry.10 June 2017 at 15:26 #5885310 June 2017 at 20:03 #58860

I’m being lazy…..12 June 2017 at 10:59 #58949
ah – somehow missed yours @pedant
One reason I posted the actual song was I’ve been failing to find original songs of Bowie’s (DRM!) so was a bit surprised to find this one (maybe its a Vevo thing).
But did really like yours – would’ve loved to have been there!14 June 2017 at 20:54 #59086
ok, been a few days without posting and then posting two songs (I’m like bloody busses!)
Anyway…. here’s one for the Empress of Mars episode that isn’t a lazy Bowie reference (bad whisht).
The lyrics are even fun if you squint your ears
ah – The The never a bad choice!
But to take a theme of this election’s outcome, I’ll try this.
It seems the ‘yoof’ turned up and wanted to take things a bit ‘leftwards’.
So, I give you…

@pedant @whisht @craig @cathannabel @mudlark @wolfweed @fatmaninabox and all of you! (and I know many don’t live in London city -but you’re a small kingdom filled with big-hearted people. Just like this Forum). And Pedant, some things should be posted regularly! Last night I went thru all 14 pages of the music thread before Bowie died. It was poignant on SO many levels.
This particular song isn’t part of the new album ?
Thane has Spotify etc but I haven’t talked to him about which songs he likes.
This is an awesome choice: considering the horror you’ve all witnessed in past months.
We’re standing with you, all of us, Australians and ex-pats too.

And yes, despite buses, keep posting! Although any other nitvardi covers of David will dis-concert. <puro bringing d’humour>
I thought this was posted pretty recently. And I love this particular concert. Some don’t like anything much from ‘Low’ -I’m not one of dem people! I’m adding this because it’s part of his chat with the congregation (ahem).
Love to you ALL!

@arbutus and the Arbutusas (too much sherry for Meli! -although that could be a great name for a band, yeah?)
Congratulations for Master Arbutus. Always loved this bright song.
And it’s a brand new day!
The PurIlions.15 June 2017 at 12:01 #59107
Not new – from an album of previously unrecorded Sandy Denny (of Fairport Convention) that were never recorded before she died. Gilmore wrote the music and recorded them (this). The BBC used London to wrap up its 2012 Olympic coverage.15 June 2017 at 13:33 #59111Anonymous @
It’s not often you see [a] keen grasp of detail like that
Oh, clever that.
[Sam] whose voice has, alas been destroyed by nodules on her vocal chords..
And where else would they be? But still, a penetrating analysis.
Seriously though: a gorgeous and very unique voice.15 June 2017 at 16:11 #59113
“very unique”, eh? 😉16 June 2017 at 11:49 #5913416 June 2017 at 21:28 #59151
@pedant – that’s lovely and I’m hoping the smartphone was held in a vicelike grip by one of her production crew!!
I jest – currently musicians make most of their money from live gigs so live performances online showing to thousands “you should go to the next gig by this person because they are great live” are (imo) essential.
I think the whole ‘don’t let them listen/download it’ legal culture is killing musicians but at the same time we have a lopsided technical availability.
Probably blockchain or somesuch will redress this, but I hope it doesn’t stifle creatives and creativity for too many years.
In Empress of Mars…
Bill mentioned The Thing – lovely score. Morricone channeling Carpenter. One thing polishing/ rubbng off on the other?
‘Enjoy’ [entirely the wrong word unless you enjoy being scared]
part 1 too many spoilers in the video
I’ve forgotten the film so may rewatch this weekend

It’s worse than jazz.20 June 2017 at 13:30 #59348
ha ha – yes @arbutus I noted the “its worse than jazz” dig!
Will listen eagerly!
I haven’t said much (anything?) about Eaters of Light as nearly everything has been said (an I kinda agree with it all).
So, Bowie reference for Eaters of Light…?
Not exactly a favourite of mine, but seems obvious.21 June 2017 at 21:48 #59461
So, a different choon for Eaters of Light.
This one for all the children references…
(not the best off this album, but hopefully not a bad introduction if you’ve not heard their stuff. I tire quickly of it – maybe two songs in succession and that’s enough but those two songs….. ahhhhh….)25 June 2017 at 00:28 #59576
So, the definitive song about time, and may as well got right back to the beginning:25 June 2017 at 18:05 #59650
great song @pedant – it will shock and sadden you to know that I’d never heard it before!
As for World Enough and Time…
Well I’m still flogging this horse if no one else is(!) but is this too obvious a Bowie link?
;¬)25 June 2017 at 20:50 #59668
There are many cover of the song, but check out the one by 10,000 Maniacs.
And back to Time… Best. Intro. Ever.25 June 2017 at 21:05 #59669
@pedant – noooooooooooo!!!
You went there.
But “Best. Intro. Ever.”
I hope when you said that that it sounded like:
“Besp. Inpro. Ebah”
while you had your tongue firmly in your cheek!
🙂25 June 2017 at 21:09 #59670
Now, in all seriousness.
This IS The Master’s Theme.25 June 2017 at 21:54 #59672
Many years of diligent research by scientists, using science, have show that people who like The Smiths are in no position to criticise any one else’s taste. About anything. Science proves it. With science.
Over to you Tom…26 June 2017 at 00:18 #5968526 June 2017 at 00:44 #5968828 June 2017 at 22:10 #59901
ah, just realised some may not have understood (or cared to be fair) why I chose El Cumparsita for The Master’s Theme.
That’s because the version I preferred happened not to have the ‘full’ name of the song “El Cumparsita (The Masked One)”
[link to another version I don’t like as much and don’t think its as capey/ moustache-twirly as the one I originally linked to].
Blimey – this is a pointless post, so here’s another track for World Enough and Time.
This is for the Patients and the nightmarish volume controls imposed on them.
It’s by The Knife (Mr Razor! ha ha …. ohh, I’ll go now…).29 June 2017 at 16:01 #599471 July 2017 at 19:52 #601211 July 2017 at 23:13 #60161
I loved the western theme tonight, with nods to The Alamo and The Magnificent Seven. And the soundtrack had many nods to Ennio Morriconie, from all of Sergio Leone’s westerns, so I’ll just drop this bomb.1 July 2017 at 23:34 #60162
Oh, and of course, there was that harmonica.1 July 2017 at 23:45 #601631 July 2017 at 23:56 #60164Nick @nick
this seemed particularly appropriate.. although not particularly outstanding musically
