PostSubject: KLF - The Timelords - Doctor In The Tardis   Thu Jan 26, 2012 3:14 am

In 1988 a 'novelty' pop single, "Doctorin' the Tardis" was released by KLF / The Timelords. The song is predominantly a mash-up of the Doctor Who theme music, "Block Buster!" by The Sweet and Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll (Part Two)", with sparse vocals inspired by The Daleks and Harry Enfield's "Loadsamoney" character. "Doctorin' the Tardis" reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on 12 June, and charted highly in Australia and New Zealand.

So for you that have not heard this track or seen the Videos with some amazing home made Daleks here it is in all its glory - from 1988 (When I was 4 years old)

Doctor In The Tardis cheers

I've heard this song several times before, either on the radio on CD. Probably the best DW "remix" I've listened too.

KLF brings back so many memories from my childhood.

Not saying that that's a good thing though!! Razz

I got the CD single when it came out in the early 90s. Like all the tracks, but the 12" mix is my favorite.

I remember this. Those boxy "Daleks" and a Police "car".

But part of this song always reminds me of the song that gets played at every sporting event.

You're probably thinking of the Gary Glitter "Rock n Roll Part 2" part of the song.

OK,just searched that, and yep,that's it. For years, all my friends thought I was weird for singing "Doctor Who-oew" when they played that.
