The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

The Doctor Who Theme, Slowed Down Until It’s Twenty Minutes Long


Get ready for a time travel trip of a different sort: one where time slows down. If the Doctor thinks that time passing normally is slow and in the correct order, I don’t think he’d be able to get through two minutes of this, which is how long you need to listen until you get to the boooweeeeoooooo.

And don’t tell me you weren’t curious about when that bit came in.

    to truly appreciate what went into composing and realizing the Doctor Who theme song, you need to read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Who_theme_music#1960s
    Their methods of creating that sound were extremely involved and difficult, as electronic synthesizers for creating music did not yet exist.

    When I was five, I was terrified of this theme song. I thought I outgrew that fear, but – hey! Hello again, urge to hide behind the sofa!

    I started listening to this and then remembered I’m on prescription morphine. So much nope.

    This was the most relaxing way to start my morning. Not sure what that says about me.

    Excellent. Will use this for the next time my players tumble into a dungeon, some creepy caves or the underdark!

    Truly beautiful, yet just a little disturbing.
