Oh, I know this great song about this bloke and his girlfriend. She drops the ring he gives her on the railway track, and when he goes back to get it, she's killed by the train and he's really miserable for the rest of his life.
Both the Tenth (TV: Journey's End) and Eleventh Doctors (TV: The Beast Below) claimed that people with whom he and his companions had interacted with sang or would write songs about them following their meetings. The Tenth Doctor claimed, after returning Donna Noble to her mother and grandfather, that "there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble, a thousand million light years away". (TV: Journey's End)
Cultural songs Edit
Several cultures and species had specific groups who passed on tales through song. The Menoptera spoke to Barbara Wright of "song-spinners" who sang of the beauty of the Temple of Light. (TV: The Web Planet) Similarly Avram was a travelling singer – a songsmith, who travelled around Mesopotamia telling his stories. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Genesys)
Several species and individuals had or received songs that were both telepathic and prophetic. The Ood sang songs like this, (TV: Planet of the Ood, The End of Time) whilst Saul intoned and projected messages as songs. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Revelation)
Other cultures used songs to comment on society, such as Plasticine's "Dissent Is Good", a song about freedom of speech and action, sung by and composed with the assistance of Bernice Summerfield. (PROSE: No Future)
"Song" could also be used as a term for an oft repeated phrase or style. The Master mocked the Third Doctor, saying, "Your usual song of death and disaster? I do wish you'd learn a new tune," as the Master prepared to unleash Kronos on the Doctor. (TV: The Time Monster)
Songs and language Edit
The Master also liked to quote lyrics of songs to people, idly commenting to Jo (while she was his prisoner), "Miss Grant, you had better prepare yourself for a long stay. I'm afraid it's not a very comfortable place, but as the old song says, 'Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.'" (TV: Frontier in Space)
Vincent van Gogh could see a sadness in Amy, saying. "Oh, Amy. I hear the song of your sadness. You've lost someone, I think", seeing Amy Pond's loss of Rory, even if she at the time did not know herself. (TV: Vincent and the Doctor)
