fanmix - Doctor Who - general - here is where we start & where we end  
For a while now, I've been working on, or contemplating beginning several Doctor Who related mixes. I actually have a second one in the works & a a couple in the contemplation stage. But this is the first one to ever make it out of my head.

It's an odd concept to mix for, regeneration, but it's an aspect of the Doctor that fascinates me to some degree. I think it's because it's both an ending & a beginning - an almost paradoxical thought in some ways, an impossible thought, even, but I think that's why I love it.

So here we are: nine songs for nine regenerations of the Doctor in order from One to Nine. (after some internal debate, I decided not to include Ten or Ten v. 2.0 because a) there are plenty of mixes devoted to one or the other around the fandom, just ask about & b) I adhered to the official, classic definition of regeneration - the Doctor physically, fully changing his form from one body to another. Ten has yet to do that; he only has a duplicate of himself in an alternate universe. So neither of them were included. My apologies!) I tried to select songs that captured the mood of each regeneration, rather than the personality of each one. I think I succeeded for the most part, but perhaps not as well in other parts.

Now before we get to the music, I have one final note for all of you.


o1. Radiohead - Airbag []

In a deep deep sleep
of the innocent
I am born again

In an interstellar burst
I am back to save the universe

o2. Muse - Butterflies & Hurricanes []

Change everything you are
And everything you were
Your number has been called
Fights and battles have begun
Revenge will surely come
Your hard times are ahead

o3. Emilie Autumn - Remember []

Like a memory of a time gone by
Many things I've seen still I can't deny
That I remember you

. . . .

When you say my name
When you hold my hand
When you whisper in my ear the things
That only you could understand

. . . .

I remember you

o4. Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb []

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship's smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.

When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am.

o5. Radiohead - Pyramid Song []

I jumped in the river and what did I see?
Black-eyed angels swam with me
A moon full of stars and astral cars
All the figures I used to see
All my lovers were there with me
All my past and futures
And we all went to heaven in a little row boat
There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt

o6. Phantom Planet - Knowitall []

Hours have passed and I have seen
The terror I am stuck between
Who I've been
And who I'm thinking
I could be
I was listening to battle begin
Wondering which side would win

. . . .

After this there's nothing else
Nothing you can't solve
If you're such a knowitall

o7. Goldfrapp - Monster Love []

I never thought I would return
To be consumed by you again
Think you're cured
You'd see it come

. . . . .

Everything comes around
Bringing us back again
Here is when we start
And where we end...

o8. Her Space Holiday - Hair Cut Short []


o9. Thea Gilmore - Going Down []

Well heaven knows the way things go
With ticker tape and radios
The good fight was lost long ago
And bravery doesn’t live in those
Who’re going down
And I’m going down

. . . .

From sad refrain to sad refrain
I said you’d hear it all again
The lonely call of distant trains
I missed the point but hit the shame going down
And I’m going down
Its been there for the taking
The only journey I’ll be making is down
feeling a little: restlessrestless
