I wrote another song! I actually wrote the lyrics for this a few years ago, but I was listening to Neil Baldwin chiptunes while I was crawling the final dungeon in Bravely Default when I heard the title track to Shadow Skimmer.
Never heard of this game, but it was for the Commodore 64, and that’s a pretty badass looking title screen, so I bet it’s cool. The music, in any case, IS AMAZING. Neil Baldwin is definitely my favorite chiptunes composer after Nobuo Uematsu. And considering that I have his standing permission to record music with his compositions, I listen to his stuff a LOT.
I started humming along to the song immediately, and then I realized that these old Doctor Who lyrics I had that I never did anything with would fit PERFECTLY. And they DID, too, I barely had to rewrite anything. It was like they were meant to be together!
Clearly, I need to write a whole bunch of other Doctor Who songs to go with it, and then I can stage a Doctor Who rock opera. Wouldn’t Doctor Who make a great rock opera?
The answer is yes. Yes, it would.
