dr who 2 windswept

If I ran the world, #942 in an infinite series.

I'm listening to Orbital's cover of the Doctor Who theme by Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire, and what I am thinking is this: Moffatt's takeover of Who production should be accompanied by a complete overhaul of the series music. Ditch the hysteria-laden orchestral crap and go back to an electronic version of the theme. As is proper. Since the first recording is such a great piece of early electronica.

Harrumph.
But...but...I love the Dr Who music, I like how overblown and daft it is. I'd change the fact that when the cast changes for the first time I will be older than Dr Who and his assistant. That's not good, that's not good at all.
I love the theme itself. It's appropriately weird and spacey. I just so much prefer every electronic version I've heard, especially the original, to the orchestral takes. Even the cheesy 80s tinny synth version was better than the current Murray Gold version.

I hate the current series scores with a very great passion. I hate film scores that hit me over the head with what I'm supposed to be feeling.
