    Love both of those @Thane16 (Puro)!

    That Baccarat song was recently used in a Cadbury’s chocolate ad that I thought worked well (the campaign seems a rather simplistic ‘bit of fun’ following on from the Phil Collins one, but probably works in terms of what its aiming for).
    I like it anyway!

    I don’t really have a ‘song’ for Resolution.

    Hi everyone – hope you’re enjoying the New Year!
    I haven’t much to add to everyone’s thoughts on Resolution – except to add to the view that one Dalek is always better (ie scarier) than hordes of them.

    Chibnall seems to be stronger in the ‘intimate-relationship dialogue rather than speech-ifying and though I was never a fan of the bombastic stuff…[Read more]

    ah well – that last one didn’t link as I expected.

    I was after the Live at Newport version, but that wasn’t it.
    soooo…. here’s the single (I’ll admit I prefer the live version):

    Hey all – Happy New Year’s Eve to everyone!

    I’ve been trying to get into the christmassy vibe and now the New Year’s vibe but… just a weird one this year.
    Nothing major, I’m perfectly fine as thankfully are my loved ones, just not in an especially ‘festive’ spirit though I am perfectly content.

    So, I’ve spent too long trying to find a tune and…[Read more]

    ok

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    Haven’t been on the forum for a few days (or have I????*)

    I’m travelling over the next few days (visiting a friend which is nice).
    So a quick post of the most obvious song I could think of!

    I could’ve sworn I’d posted this clip before and if so sorry – its just the way I usually check suggests I…[Read more]

    @pedant and @cathannabel (and @ everyone else),

    that body of work stands and will stand, with some of the finest 3 minute pop songs ever crafted. And some of the most memorable lyrics. Pete Shelley, RIP.

    Cath you’ve said better than I why the Buzzcocks were so good and the sadness of hearing about Pete Shelley.

    As a kid at the time I’d…[Read more]

    @Thane16 – you mentioned you’d not heard A Man of Constant Sorrows – I mainly know the Dylan version (though I’ll admit I don’t really listen to his early stuff much)

    Anyway, here’s another song for It Takes You Away.
    Actually I have two.

    One is Orpheus by David Sylvian. I think versions of that myth are similar in some ways to the other…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    aww @Arbutus – I’m gonna listen to the Herbie Hancock in my morning (they’re great great tunes and I’ve not heard the live versions).

    But they’ll make me want to get up and for me as I type its nighttime.

    So – here is a(nother) song for It Takes You Away.
    @Bluesqueakpip has explained better than I how much of a fairytale this episode is (and for…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    @pedant – Mirror in the Bathroom – fairy nuff ! Tight as a gnat’s …. hm maybe I shouldn’t do rhyming.
    The other ‘mirror’ songs in my collection are all unsuitable and so I’ll link to something by Arctic Monkeys (from the album referenced by the t-shirt).
    Snap out of it – perhaps quite appropriate.

    But I’ll also link a song which is me trying to…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic It Takes You Away

    That. Was. Excellent.

    Honestly, I was welling up/in tears at the end and thought that all the actors* were brilliant.

    Just thought the whole thing worked well.
    In this one I’m not especially caring if it feels like “is this the Doctor?” and instead just enjoying feeling “that was a great story”.

    No doubt some music** will come but really just…[Read more]

    oooohhh lots of synth love!

    @Thane16 – for a bit of context (if you’re interested), here’s a bbc documentary that tries to show where the electronic sound of Heaven 17 and Human League (and many others!) came from.

    I can actually remember the Tomorrow’s World that featured Kraftwerk which is featured here, though I’d only be around 4.
    As its one…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    oh and btw @blenkinsopthebrave – I like how you manage to use glitches rather than tut about them!

    ;¬)

    When i now hear the CD versions of songs I grew up knowing only though the ‘jumps’ in scratched vinyl it still makes me rush a beat!

    Which also is a reason to thank you as it’s reminded me to listen to this as an album rather than randomly…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    ah, oblique @pedant

    I’m not sure I’m able to offer much in terms of oblique for The Witchfinders, as I tend not to go with lyrics as much as the music, so its harder for me to ‘find’ in my collection.

    But this popped up the other day as I was walking along and I smiled thinking “maybe…?”

    Hi @thane16

    Happy Birthday !!
    Hope you have a fantastic (and cool) time!

    This as brilliantly suggested by @winston

    Warning – there are spoilers in this song for subsequent years

    :¬)

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    In terms of The Witchfinders I seem to have stumbled across a few songs to link to.

    Which is good news for everyone, as it means not having to wade through the album Live at the Witch Trials by the Fall.
    And even avoiding Captain Beefheart unless you’re a fan.

    So one obvious one (and knowingly playing to the gallery) Saint Kate Bush…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave – thanks for the Ennio update (@Mudlark ‘s entropy update was also good to hear but in an entirely different way).

    The clip you linked to has a slight glitch (for me) in the audio – it just cuts out after one of the solos (around two and a half minutes in).
    So I hunted around and found this version of the same concert.

    It…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic Demons of the Punjab

    @pedant – I agree.

    If we can’t attract the right level of troll, are we going to have to do it for ourselves?

    “We’ve alredy had the War Doctor – we don’t need the Social Justice Warrior Doctor!”

    Well, at least I’m trying

    tsk

  • Whisht replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    and obviously @Mudlark – I’m really glad you’re taking positive action about what you noticed about your condition and that you’re able to make informed choices.

    Even if it means something possibly ‘unsightly’ for your nose, I’m so so glad this didn’t lead you to deferring doing anything and possibly meaning worse happens.

    Hm, I’m writing this…[Read more]
