    still need to catch up on loads of songs here!

    But wanted to say well done to @jimthefish

    This isn’t a great song (unfortunately) but the title at least makes sense

    (but for a really good ‘doctor’ song then feel free to shimmy along to this!)

    congratulations!

  • Just a shout-out to one of the most perfectly-cast roles I’ve seen recently.

    There’s a show called The Tick (I’ve been watching it on Amazon).
    Its silly.
    Juvenile.
    Daft.
    Stupid.
    Brilliant.

    Not all the characters are perfectly cast.

    But….

    Take a bow Peter Serafinowicz!

    He is completely awesome as The Tick and every second that…[Read more]

    he he yes @peacefrog – that’s kinda’ve a classic!

    ;¬)

    Here’s one (similar era) for the Fourth Doctor’s Birthday.

    Happy birthday Tom

    So, here’s one for Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror.

    But that’s just for my bonkers “all the episodes are linked to Kraftwerk songs” theory.

    ;¬)

    Here’s a couple of very different ‘electric’ tunes.
    Spiritualised’s is a bit of a roller (cruel edit at end)

    and something maybe more cerebral from Reich[Read more]

    @peacefrog – wow, lots of music for me to catch up on!

    Apologies I haven’t been around to listen or ping-pong back, but its obvious we have a lot of overlapping tastes (though I’ll admit to never yet getting into the Grateful Dead, so will listen to those songs to get inspired!!).

    Will try and listen soon and try and ‘reply’ with songs.

    :¬)

  • So, I enjoyed this one more than the previous episodes this series. Would have to watch again to see if its the writing, direction or casting/acting, but it was ok.

    I can’t really add anything that anyone else has already said eg discomfort at lack of mindwipes when they were used before (though like most I think they’re problematic at best);…[Read more]

    Hi @peacefrog – ah, Karen O. I like Yeah Yeah Yeahs but only have the first album (I think).
    It reminded me (perhaps many things do!) of Mimi Goese when I saw her chanced upon this concert on TV ‘back-in-the-day’.
    (memories of hearing one song and scrabbling around on the carpet looking for a VHS to tape it on! The rest of it was amazing too -…[Read more]

    and this is for….

    everyone

    thank you

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    @thane16 – that’s a great version of La Marsellesa – and you’re right about the female choir needing more voices! But I loved the male singers barging in to begin with… and being barged back out.

    Its a great, stirring song. A real puff-your-chest-out-in-pride rabble rowser.

    And in no surprise to anyone who’s ever seen me post a song, here’s…[Read more]

    So, the opener Spyfall had a motorbike chase.

    That is enough of an excuse for these two slightly different songs.

    and this which is (surprise!) very tender.

  • Whisht replied to the topic Orphan 55

    So Whisht, you haven’t commented on the episode.
    [Whisht shakes his head]

    Would you like to?
    [Whisht looks uncomfortable with being asked about the episode]

    Ok Whisht, its ok. Here’s a doll. Point to where the episode hurt you.

    [Whisht points to the doll’s head]
    Ah,
    [Whisht points to the heart]
    I see…
    [Whisht points to the ears]
    Hm, ok….

    Hey @peacefrog – Thanks so much for posting so much music!

    Always great to hear good choons – its a great Violent Femmes song and I do love the mixes on that Beastie Boys track and there’s even a Daniel Johnston cover!

    @Arbutuswow – Not heard Lau before and that’s really piqued my interest!
    I really enjoyed how its folkiness is welded to…[Read more]

    @pedant – my parents were economic migrants.
    My dad caught the thick end of abuse.

    Fuck off.

    You called me an enabler of racism.

    Fuck off.

    I’ll listen to music and reply to that but fuck off.

    Merry xmas

    {sigh}
    I can’t edit the end of my post so just to make clear(er)(er) I wasn’t saying that Blue used “they” arguments (at least if she did, I wasn’t referring to it).

    I disagree with her arguments about Brexit for a number of separate reasons.
    I was trying to reply to her previous answer to me, but her comments were written in a way that I needed…[Read more]

    @pedant @thane16
    Can I be clear(er)?

    In my anecdote, when the person made the comments about the strain on local services and it being the fault of “the Poles and Lithuanians”, my family member and myself both made the point that the person’s belief needed to extend to… my family member, two other people in the conversation and others they’d…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    Hi @pedant

    Well, I realise that I’ve left an important part out.
    I guess I tried to use the anecdotal info along with the general, as “they” are not a homogeneous bloc.
    And yes, I mean “they” in every sense of Poles, Blacks, Muslims, ‘others’… Leavers.

    The group I was talking with were lumping all the Poles and Lithuanians together as ‘them’,…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    Hi @bluesqueakpip et al
    As it was my anecdote, I think I do need to be explicit about what I mean (I’ve already failed in my writing once on this. I guess I’ll probably get it wrong twice but here goes!).

    [Alonsy perhaps…]

    Basically I have family living in Northampton and Yorkshire (also elsewhere).
    I was speaking to the Northampton…[Read more]

    and something I know I’ve never posted as I only found it the other week(!) while looking for something else.

    I need this album!

    (not trying to bring the mood down again, but this is a lovely slice of soul)

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    and other songs I’ve posted before, but are ones that are about feeling better (a feeling I need) and simply joyous.

    That share a tuba.

    Tuba??

    Yeah, tuba.

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    @blenkinsopthebrave
    You are a wise man.
    Music that makes us feel good.
    A Morricone piece that always makes me smile is this, though its for the visuals too…

    The juxtaposition of the sheer beauty of music and Claudia Cardinale to the place she’s landed in… I dunno. I just always liked that.
