Music = Sad  
This is what I get for, instead of sleeping 9.5 hours before a funeral, listening to music I know will make me sad:

So I got the Doctor Who S1/S2 soundtrack from Ishohunt COMPLETELY LEGALLY, and reached the following conclusions:

1.) The extended/full version of "Song for Ten" = the story of the Doctor and Rose, from beginning to end. Emphasis on the end. I've never found a song that makes me want to smile and cry at the same time as much as this one.

2.) "Doomsday" is such a beautiful song. I wish it didn't wrench my heart out, throw it to the ground, and stomp it to pieces every time I listen to it.

3.) Thank you, "Love Don't Roam", for giving me a much-needed smile. And an urge to dance. Neil Hannon FTW.

I concur WITH EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE ABOVE POINTS.

Especially about Song for Ten. And the crying and smiling at the same time. I get shivers practically every time I listen to that song.

Guh.

So lovely.

I also got my soundtrack legally *cough*MiniNova*coughcough* and Love it to pieces.

I do have a question: On "Song For Ten" and "Love Don't Roam"...is it just the songs I have, or does Neil Hannon's voice only come out of one speaker? Listening to it on my MP3 is a nightmare because his voice is only in my left ear and not both and I hate that.

I have both songs on my MP3 player, and nope, didn't notice anything like that. I'll upload them later, if you like, so you can see if I'm smoking the crack or have fixed versions.

Try this. If it works better, I'll get the other one.

The Doctor Who soundtrack is one of my favorite soundtracks! I also agree with all of the above points.

I couldn't listen to Doomsday for awhile after I heard it completely. *sniffles*

Doomsday I'm OK with, strangely enough; it's the music-box music from the end of The Girl in the Fireplace which gets me, every single time.

*nods* Eventually the Doomsday track became one of my favorites and only whenever I read a sad fanfic or have just watched AoG/DD will it make me teary eyed.

Oh and the GITF music is also very beautiful. *Is currently watching BBCA's rebroadcast of GITF*

It would be the only beautiful thing about GITF from a shipper's POV then ;)

The costumes were pretty, too. ^_~

OK, I think I can let you have that one ;)

I am so not a fan of it from the Ten/Rose angle, which is a shame really as it is a fantabulous episode from most other POVs.

I'm reverting to my old college ways in combination with taking after you.

Staying up late with no good reason.

:P

I was at a funeral all day yesterday. I know it's impossible to get you lot assembled on short notice, but if you're all looking for something to do after work or whatever you're up to, give me a call. Could use the company.

Are you getting the Heroes DVDs? Preorders at FYE in the mall (admittedly one of the more expensive places) is giving away posters of the eclipse with pre-orders.

Sadly, I can't pick it up for a while yet. Still broke and most of my money is being saved to pick up Julie.
Kerikeristars on August 22nd, 2007 03:55 am (UTC)
k. I'm gonna see how much it is when I go to work tomorrow. I might be able to do it. Or at least the poster. :P

Goo, my thoughts on what you've posted:

1.) The extended/full version of Song for Ten = the story of the Doctor and Rose, from beginning to end. Emphasis on the end. I've never found a song that makes me want to smile and cry at the same time as much as this one.

Oh, yes; definitely. It fools you into thinking everything's all fluffy and happy before gutting you later on in the song, and it's yet another thing on the list of things that are making Season Two (plus The Christmas Invasion) too damn difficult to watch for knowing what is coming for them. Which is a damn shame as I love, love, love Season Two.

2.) Doomsday is such a beautiful song. I wish it didn't wrench my heart out, throw it to the ground, and stomp it to pieces every time I listen to it.

It would be better if you didn't listen to it while watching Doomsday ;) (yes, I know you've said you don't watch that episode any more. Can't blame you. I tried at the week-end and stopped less than five minutes in because I was shaking uncontrollably.)

Seriously, though, I know what you mean. It's sort of an emotional trigger, I guess you could say.

3.) Thank you, Love Don't Roam, for giving me a much-needed smile. And an urge to dance. Neil Hannon FTW.

Y'know, to be honest with you I feel pretty much the same about Love Don't Roam as you do about Song for Ten; I know for a fact that I need to be in a pretty happy mood emotionally for it not to have me weeping (hence at the moment I listen to it rarely, if at all).
