Actually, on the subject of the big talkin' bird, I've got one from my writing mixtape. It's a companion song I could see sung by the character themselves.
Avan 'Frobisher' Tarklu -- "The Galaxy Express 999"
"Travelling with the Doc can sometimes seem like one long confidence trick. That's how we met, you know. I got the jump on him and, just like that, he turned the tables on me for fun and profit. We've been friends ever since. Him, Peri and me."
"Courage isn't a matter of not being frightened you know; It's being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway."
Iris could have Red Red Wine by Neil Diamond or UB40's reggae version, Tequila by the Champs, Thin Lizzy's Whisky in the Jar and Liar's Bar by the Beautiful South as a theme song. Or my personal favourite, the Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett song, which is also the unofficial anthem of BBC Radio 2 listeners(!), It's Five O'Clock Somewhere...
I was re-listening to a song today that I've never actually known the words to, I've just always thought it sounded really beautiful. Having now read the words I think it's even more beautiful, but I also thought of one moment in Who history where it would be the *perfect* piece of musical accompaniment.
In The Name of the Doctor, Eleven describes to Clara that "the Doctor" was not just a name, it was a promise. We learn that promise in The Day of the Doctor: "Never cruel or cowardly. Never give up. Never give in." At the end of the Time War, one man stands as the sole survivor of the conflict. He'd given up everything he'd ever been to fight that war, and to end it he'd wiped out his enemy and his people alike, including 2.47 billion children. With the war over, this man somehow finds it within himself to once again take up that name, that promise. I'm not sure if that moment has ever been written, and I'm not sure I'd like it to be. I don't think there's any one writer out who'd quite be able to give that moment justice. However, if it were ever attempted, May It Be by Enya would have to be the piece of music played with it (lyric version included for those who, like me, don't know them):
