Purely because it has a ‘Night of the Hunter’ sample…4 July 2017 at 22:42 #60373
I’ve gone with something opposite (cos…. well, just cos).
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!!]4 July 2017 at 23:21 #60376Nick @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.9 July 2017 at 22:57 #6049913 July 2017 at 03:27 #60576Arbutus @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! OOO13 July 2017 at 03:41 #60577winston @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.13 July 2017 at 04:48 #60582blenkinsopthebrave @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!14 July 2017 at 20:43 #60644
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.

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.16 July 2017 at 20:27 #6080917 July 2017 at 17:40 #60933
It’s not the longest of songs, I grant you…19 July 2017 at 23:12 #61148
great choons – so one from me!
cos the Doctor is, right?21 July 2017 at 14:57 #6124721 July 2017 at 15:56 #61249toinfinityandbepond @toinfinityandbepond24 July 2017 at 01:59 #6136928 July 2017 at 22:14 #61514
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)30 July 2017 at 21:47 #61554Zeyra @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.4 August 2017 at 18:04 #61614JimTheFish @jimthefishTime 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.8 August 2017 at 21:41 #61671
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.9 August 2017 at 10:57 #61675Cath Annabel @cathannabel
Nice one @craig. We played Wichita Lineman last night when I saw the news. A gorgeous song, gorgeously sung.9 August 2017 at 18:54 #61680
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…)10 August 2017 at 14:44 #61683JimTheFish @jimthefishTime 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….22 August 2017 at 22:07 #61779
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!
;¬)23 August 2017 at 20:45 #61788
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.24 August 2017 at 21:16 #61798
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…26 August 2017 at 22:18 #61808
This riff reminds me of something… I can’t think what…….3 September 2017 at 13:34 #61828
So this is officially the most bonkers/fun thing I have ever seen.4 September 2017 at 15:11 #61831Anonymous @
To all fans of The Mist including me Mum and @pedant.
Thane15 (up all night making sock puppets: long story)6 September 2017 at 23:17 #61839
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).6 September 2017 at 23:27 #61840
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.

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.

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.17 September 2017 at 11:48 #61945
“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…17 September 2017 at 14:53 #619482 October 2017 at 21:29 #62032
Oh man, Tom Petty died.25 October 2017 at 22:57 #62244
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!)29 October 2017 at 10:31 #62281
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!)1 November 2017 at 23:26 #62311
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.11 November 2017 at 12:48 #62403
posted this before, I’m sure, but may as well again.
@missrori – imo the answer to your ongoing question will not come from others.11 November 2017 at 19:15 #62406
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.11 November 2017 at 20:18 #62407
I should have typed William McBride, not Jimmy
Eric Bogle’s version can be found here13 November 2017 at 22:35 #62417
“Novelty record?” I don’t hear you ask.
Well, if you insist…25 November 2017 at 09:47 #62474
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.2 December 2017 at 10:31 #625512 December 2017 at 16:50 #62562
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.2 December 2017 at 22:36 #6256724 December 2017 at 10:48 #62711
As usual, the only Christmas music in chez Whisht is this
And this one is always fun (I love the “budderrumbdderummbumbm”)29 December 2017 at 00:40 #62828IAmNotAFishIAmAFreeMan @pedant
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:2 January 2018 at 22:42 #62952
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!
