On a roadtrip over the weekend, so added a few more songs to the memory stick I take with me for entertainment. I had an urge for Who tie-ins – so, I downloaded and ‘burned’ Monster by The Automatic (used during Dr Who adverts last year, I think), Voodoo Child by Rogue Trader (‘Here… come… the drums!’) and I Can’t Decide by Scissor Sisters, from the album Ta Dah!. The final track accompanied the early morning stroll of The Master around his floating skybase, lording over the Toclafane hunted masses of planet Earth. Dancing with his bruised wife and wheeling the aged Doctor around the command deck like some pathetic pet/toy… the scene helped sear the song into my brain, and listening to it independently, I love it.
It’s a bitch convincing people to like you
If I stop now call me a quitter
If lies were cats you’d be a litter
Pleasing everyone isn’t like you
Dancing jigs until I’m crippled
Slug ten drinks I won’t get pickled
Wonderful stuff. When you have a somg like this and Voodoo Child, you wonder whether the songs came before the script… or whether Russell T had them running on in the background while he was typing…
