    Purely because it has a ‘Night of the Hunter’ sample…


    Whisht @whisht

    Blimey! Well I guess it was a finale so explains @pedant and @craig rolling out the big guns!
    The End and Morricone!

    I’ve gone with something opposite (cos…. well, just cos).
    Tiny tears…

    Mainly for the song title but it does have this lyric:
    “How can you hurt someone so much your supposed to care for,
    Someone you said you’d always be there for”

    And ‘Don’t Forsake me oh my Darlin’ (excellent @nick !)
    [god i wanna see a Western now…. or Night of The Hunter which is effing fantastic!!]

    Nick @nick


    I also thought this song could apply to either Bill or Missy

    I wasn’t convinced that this eels song, was quite right, but it could apply to the master given the Doctor;s mancrush.


    Whisht @whisht

    @nick – great Eels choices, and made me think of ‘friend’ songs…..

    Arbutus @arbutus

    I see I have lots of catching up to do around here!  🙂

    Right now, just a quick “Hey it’s summer!” to all members in the northern hemisphere. I’ve sort of got the garden organized (it was a wet, wet spring), and loving eating outside despite the ants and so on. I love summer. My clematis is about to turn majorly purple, and the olive tree is growing back from the roots, having apparently not died during the snow after all. There’s prosecco in the fridge, and folk fest this weekend, so I’m sure to discover some great new music.

    To our British and American friends: We live in interesting times, with lots of eventful news to read every morning. To our friends down under: It’s winter, so hopefully no forest fires? To my fellow Canadians: If you have a moment, get on to the Canadian Red Cross, and donate something to help BC forest fire victims (14,000 evacuated so far). But on a positive note, how cool is it that our new Governor-General speaks six languages and has been in space?

    Heading over to the BBQ to stir things up and make flames. Did I mention I love summer?  🙂

    Love, a hopelessly optimistic Arbutus!   OOO

    winston @winston

    @arbutus   Happy summer to you!  Ontario has been very wet with some flooding but most has dried up now and after pulling out and replanting a lot of drowned veggies things in the garden are looking good. The fires in B.C. are terrible and I like many others are trying to help in any way they can and of course the Red Cross is the best place to start.

    Our new Governor General is pretty cool and has certainly seen Canada from a whole different place.

    Have a great summer.

    blenkinsopthebrave @blenkinsopthebrave


    Yes! I remember that song from my youth. What a great song!

    As a fellow resident of British Columbia I entirely support your appeal for people to donate to the Canadian Red Cross. What is happening out here is terrible and needs support.

    Now back to rewatch Martha and the Vandellas!

    Whisht @whisht

    ooh – somehow I missed @arbutus‘ post – GREAT song!

    Now…. a post for the next Doctor reveal….

    Maybe dour (Johnny where’s the fun!? in your voice), but hopeful.


    wolfweed @wolfweed


    Just dour…!

    Craig @craig

    Okay, I may take a hit for this, but I mean it in the most endearing and ironic terms. I’m so pleased with the 13th Doctor.

    wolfweed @wolfweed

    wolfweed @wolfweed

    It’s not the longest of songs, I grant you…

    Whisht @whisht

    great choons – so one from me!

    cos the Doctor is, right?

    wolfweed @wolfweed

    toinfinityandbepond @toinfinityandbepond

    wolfweed @wolfweed

    Whisht @whisht

    ooh – missed a few of these!

    @toinfinityandbepond – great song – I’ve not heard of Dar Williams before.
    I liked this version I found (prodded by you) as I somehow heard the last verse better – maybe as i wasn’t distracted by the images. thanks!!

    @wolfweed – I’ll admit to not being a massive ELO fan but I AM a fan of Silent Running!
    I’ll warn “Spoilers” for anyone who hasn’t seen it and wants to see a great film – don’t watch the video (but listen to the song with the browser down!)


    so – apologies I haven’t been on for a while but am lurking/reading (just not on the Spoilers thread and nothing to add yet to Capaldi memories until I re-watch his seasons).

    So, a song for the 13th (btw I love how xmas is 12 + 1 =13!)

    anyway – how did I miss this one (apologies if already done and I missed it)

    Zeyra @zeyra

    Hi everybody !

    I am so, so sorry for not being there for so much time, I was pretty busy, and actually I still am, so I just thought i would share this with you as an appologize, and sorry if you already knew them ^^’ I just think they’re very underrated.

    JimTheFish @jimthefish
    Time Lord

    I’ll stick this here because, although possibly it should go in TV shows or On The Sofa. But, let’s face it, Brian Pern was a musical legend. Lots of Who references here too which are fun, including Peter Davison, Matt Lucas and Christopher Eccleston (proving that he really can do comedy). But it’s Michael Kitchen who once again steals the show.

    Craig @craig

    Ah, in memory of Glen Campbell who died today. My Dad is a Country & Western fan so I grew up with the likes of Rhinestone Cowboy, but this was my favourite. Campbell was also a great guitar player (although here less is more), having been a session musician for many other acts.

    Cath Annabel @cathannabel

    Nice one @craig.  We played Wichita Lineman last night when I saw the news.   A gorgeous song, gorgeously sung.

    wolfweed @wolfweed


    Thanks for the Brian Pern Documentary. I’m pretty sure that it’s Dr Who canon…….


    (P.S. – The music cues @ 5:18 & 15:56 are from Resurrection of the Daleks methinks…)

    JimTheFish @jimthefish
    Time Lord

    @wolfweed– to be fair I don’t think Pern is all that worse than the real Tereliptil…

    and kudos to Davison and his excellent comedic chops….

    Whisht @whisht

    So, a song for Bill.

    Because the aftershow managed to get fixated by hair (and it seemed a gentle distraction here too) I thought this might work.

    Maybe a bit ‘stoner’/ ‘slacker’ for Bill, she’d be more energetic, but… its late and its all I got for now!


    Craig @craig

    I think I may treat myself and watch “Silent Running” again tonight. Brilliant movie, fantastic script, performances and direction and, even if not, it’d be worth it just for Joan Baez.

    Craig @craig

    I’m having a week off (although busy on other things), so having enjoyed ‘Silent Running’ last night I’m watching ‘The Big Lebowski’ tonight. So, y’know…

    wolfweed @wolfweed

    This riff reminds me of something…  I can’t think what…….

    Craig @craig

    So this is officially the most bonkers/fun thing I have ever seen.

    To all fans of The Mist including me Mum and @pedant.

    Great series.

    Thane15 (up all night making sock puppets: long story)


    Whisht @whisht

    ah @Thane15 – not seen The Mist, but I love Perfect Day.

    I was lucky to know a couple who lived in New York 20-odd years ago and spent a holiday or two with them.

    I couldn’t help but hum this after spending a wonderful day with one of them in Central Park (and a few museums/ galleries).

    Whisht @whisht

    well, I don’t know this musician deeply (others here will, I’m sure). Just a few tracks by Can and collaborations with David Sylvian.

    Although every time I come across anything he’s said, he seems amusing, curious and subversive, the music I came across him first was probably this moody, atmospheric piece.
    Its still one I’ll put on when I’m reading so that now it sparks odd visual memories from books and comics I’ve read.

    Holger Czukay 1938-2017

    Hey there!

    Thx for your selection.

    Yeah, I’m not sure about whether I like Orange’s version of Pft Day better than Reed. Mum actually does which I think is probably treasonous or something but on balance Reed’s is better to me, anyway

    It’s like Mum really liking Lea Salonga singing Les Mis  -and yet she says she doesn’t like musicals 😀 when Patti Lupone was the “first singer” of that and it was probably note perfect (though mum says she was both sharp and ‘lost it’ in one bar -I couldn’t tell because I can’t sing a single note in tune). So whadda I know? 🙂

    Czukay? I had never heard of him (him?) And he passed away this year?

    I will now check him out.

    Sounds like  a Russian or Serbian name maybe.


    Whisht @whisht

    So, I’ve joined in with some people watching The Keys of Marinus on the other thread.

    and I thought “I wonder what was on the radio at the time?”

    I wasn’t around at the time, so I’m using what I think was in the charts (based on this site) but happy (perhaps happier) for people who were around at the time to tell me “well, yes that was in the charts but actually this was popular…”

    Here’s something recorded a few months later, but was number 1 when The Keys… went out live.

    Here’s another song that had already been in the charts a while.

    Whisht @whisht


    “She seems a little dense to me. I can imagine her driving 12 crazy. “stop trying to swim”, “don’t wander away” “don’t follow strange footprints” etc”

    I love the idea of a weary Doctor, sick and tired of telling Susan what not to do…

    wolfweed @wolfweed

    @whisht   ‘Don’t pretend to be a Doctor…’


    Craig @craig

    Oh man, Tom Petty died.

    Whisht @whisht

    Well, I know I do this too often and the Music thread turns into the “they died?” thread but…

    although I prefer the downright boogie woogie of this (and is it just me or is his singing a bit Professor Longhair?) (I also love his harmonica… sans harmonica!)

    Whisht @whisht

    Rather randomly read an interview with Bootsy Collins this morning, so thought I’d ask Google what I should get down to…

    (my crappy laptop speakers basically didn’t play any of the bass so popped my headphones on and… sweet!)

    Craig @craig

    Just popping on because in a bit of a difficult time this made me laugh so much. On Halloween Dave Grohl dressed up as David Letterman (the retired version) and presented the Jimmy Kimmel Show. And Kristen Bell (from Frozen, and who is fast becoming a national treasure) dressed up as Magnum PI. And they jammed. The band were also dressed as 80s music icons.

    Whisht @whisht

    posted this before, I’m sure, but may as well again.

    @missrori – imo the answer to your ongoing question will not come from others.

    stevethewhistle @steve-thorp

    This YouTube video is a suitable one for Remembrance Day. It is June Tabor’s version of Eric Bogle’s song,

    also known as Jimmy McBride and The Green Fields of France. I was singing it to myself most of the morning while I was on my way to my regular MRI scan.


    stevethewhistle @steve-thorp


    I should have typed William McBride, not Jimmy

    Eric Bogle’s version can be found here

    Whisht @whisht

    “Novelty record?” I don’t hear you ask.

    Well, if you insist…

    Whisht @whisht

    Some may say my listening habits of late have erred toward the silly, but who could resist picking up a CD in a charity shop with this emblazoned on the cover:

    “Cover versions of Krafwerk songs, arranged primarily on re-tooled Lo-bit gaming technology. Features some of the 8-bit scene’s best innovators and several of the inventors themselves.”

    I hadn’t heard the original of this one, but think I actually prefer it!

    If you liked that one, the album’s over here.

    Whisht @whisht

    [belated] Happy Birthday @thane16 !!

    Curly hair??

    Be careful if you have flowing locks, as it could lead to my current situation…


    Here’s something more lively from the Jam

    (and live its amazing to see the energy they had!)

    Craig @craig

    Naomi Klein was on Desert Island Discs this week in the UK, but it’s available worldwide via BBC’s radio iPlayer if you want to check it out. One of her discs was this, which I’d never heard before. It made me laugh – a lot. Especially given, y’know, who’s running the US right now. Her father was a conscientious objector. But some are just cowards.

    stevethewhistle @steve-thorp


    Let us not forget Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant

    Whisht @whisht

    As usual, the only Christmas music in chez Whisht is this

    And this one is always fun (I love the “budderrumbdderummbumbm”)


    Since nobody else is going to do it…

    The same chord structure as Canon in D, fact fans, and about the historical events depicted in TUAT:

    Whisht @whisht

    Had been trying to find a ‘happy new year’ tune but nothing feels right (will try harder).

    Had been trying to find something for Twice Upon a Time (but again, still not finding anything just right).

    So will fall back on this.

    So long Doctor – and welcome!

    Happy New Year everyone!
