Just As I Thought

“We imagine the Doctor was in distress because he’d heard this record”

imageFor some unknown reason, I’ve been looking for an audio file of a 20-year-old record for a while.

I remembered the song from back then when I was in the whole Dr. Who fandom culture.
Finally, today I found an MP3 version, evidently the only one extant. It’s not nearly as good as I remembered it — in fact, it’s cringe-inducing. What’s most astonishing about it is that Basia sings on it! The name of the “group” says it all: Who Cares?
