THERE’S OVER 6,000 OF YOU
So yeah, welcome everyone who’s relatively new, and thanks for following my little blog.
I apologise for posts being fairly sparse at the moment, and there being huge delays in answers to your questions. I’m in my final year of university and it’s deadline time. Fun fun fun fun.
Anonymous asked: hello, i was wondering if you could tell me which tracks in the series 7 soundtrack have the i am the doctor theme in it?
Ok, so this is quite a complex question. I Am The Doctor is constructed with lots of different themes which tend to reflect the Eleventh Doctor’s character traits in different ways.
You have the repeating, ascending ostinato riff thing that’s usually in 7/8 (lets call this Theme 1), usually played by strings.
then there’s what we’ll call Theme 2. Usually played on brass, this is the sort of hero’s theme.
Then there’s the general harmony on the introduction. (Chords)
So with that in mind, here’s a list organised by themes.
Our Little Town’s Prosecutor (0:27)
I Might Change My Mind (2:08)
Something Awesome (1:01)
My Husband’s Home
Cumbria 1207 (0:45)
Up The Shard (0:53)
The Emperor’s Wife (0:59)
Remember Me (2:32)
Up The Shard (0:53)
I Might Change My Mind (2:08)
So yeah, there are a lot of variations of I Am The Doctor on the Series 7 soundtrack, but I’d say there are only really two instances where the piece is quoted in full. Spoonheads and I Might Change My Mind.
I hope that’s what you’re looking for!
seaking30 asked: Do you know what the music is called during the scene in the doctors wife where idris/tardis is saying alive is sad when it's over just after she dies hoping that narrows it down enough, I've looked on iTunes and I don't think it was released....
Sorry for taking SO LONG to respond to this.
In case you’re still wondering, it’s The Impossible Astronaut from the episode of the same title. You’ll find it on the Series 6 soundtrack :)
Anonymous asked: hello, i will be so grateful if you help me.. i am searching for a song from doctor who. the girl singing (not the little girl from one episode) and shes just singing (not words) and its so beautiful and it comes up on the most dramatic places. if you want to know what im talking about, please, check the night of the doctor, the moment when he wakes up (around 2min 31sec). there are couple of songs like that and if you can tell me their names i will love you forever. thank you. so much.
There are quite solo female vocal lines in The Night of the Doctor. The particular one you referred to is from The Curse of the Black Spot. You’ll find it on the Series 6 Soundtrack, called You’re a Dead Man, the other solo vocal line is Trust Me from the Series 6 episode The Impossible Astronaut.
Sorry for taking so long to respond…
sandshoesarec00l asked: What is the name of the track playing during River's goodbye scene in the Series 7 finale?
Sorry for the delay in answering. The piece is “The Wedding of River Song”, which first featured in the episode by the same title. You can find it here: http://youtu.be/HOTgKA1CV74
Hope that’s what you were after :)
Anonymous asked: Do you know if/where I can find the sheet music to the songs from the Rings of Akhaten episode?
Sorry, I don’t have any sheet music and the BBC don’t release it officially. If you check my FAQ you’ll find the only place I know for unofficial two piano scores. I’m afraid that’s the best I can do…
timeramen asked: Weird question. I have a bit of a song that i can't place. I don't know how to search it, but i know the notes to this small bit of a song. Could you by any chance help me try and place it? [G, E, F, G, (G#?)] I'm pretty sure it's from sad song in the show but I can't figure it out. I get it if you can't but thanks for reading this, anyways.
It’s one of Amy’s themes, specifically ‘Little Amy’, from the Series 5 Soundtrack, it sort of represents Amy’s childhood.
I hope that helps!
doctorlovesriver asked: Do you know why thr soundtrack for the 50th anniversary doesn't include the songs that has been used and composed for 50th anniversary are they gonna release another soundtrack for that purpose ?
If you’re referring to the 50th Anniversary Soundtrack collection, released by SilvaScreen (this one), it’s because the collection is supposed to look back at 50 years of Doctor Who. Plus, it was released before The Day of the Doctor, so it wouldn’t really make sense to put them with those CDs.
The Day of the Doctor's soundtrack was mostly made up of tracks already released anyway (I'm going to make a post which will show this when I have time!), so I wouldn't have thought they would release an album especially for the episode.
Although nothing’s been released yet, I personally think we will get an album much like previous Christmas album we’ve just had which features tracks from The Day of the Doctor and The Time of the Doctor. But that’s just speculation! I hope that’s helped.
