For a long time I've been hearing about "bronies," adult men who watch My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic. I actually know a couple. But for some reason I never tried watching the show.
Fast forward to one of my Kickstarter campaigns where I offered to record songs on any topic for a certain amount of money and one of the guys who pledged at that level wanted a song about My Little Pony. So guess what I had to watch?
And you know what? It's a freakin' fantastic show. I haven't actually seen all of it yet, but I will eventually.
I've been a Doctor Who fan since I was about 10. I love the classic series and I love the new series. I have my favorite Doctors and monsters and companions and I've met many of them at various conventions. And here, for you other Doctor Who fans who may have wandered in here, is a song about the new series. I kept it mostly focussed on Matt Smith's run as The Doctor since he's the current one, but there are a few references to Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant's episodes.
Background singing by Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad and Shoebox of Worm Quartet. The part of British Woman was played by Kim Crist.
Every generation complains about the one that follows. They lament how things were better back in "their day", be it the 1930s, 1950s, or in my case, the 1980s. The 80s were my time, to quote The Goonies. Back when women had huge hair and wore ankle socks, which, for the record, I still find sexy. So now it's my turn to complain about how much better things were back then. Except I'm not sure I really believe it.
This is the first song for which I've done the music myself in about 2 years. Previously the last song I did myself was Pac-Man. It was fun getting back into the music.
This song was included on the Rhyme Torrents 9 compilation available at www.rhymetorrents.com.
