Hello, hello fellow Whovians! The epic week-long Doctor Who series 8 premiere countdown continues on That’s Normal with today’s installment of the 3 most epic songs from modern Who. Little known fact that I used to have a ridiculous crush on the show’s composer, Murray Gold. It’s the kind of crush you Outlander peeps are developing on Tobias Menzies, except Murray shaves his thinning blonde hair.
Anyway, I’ll avoid going into the full details of the musical history of Doctor Who… suffice it to say that Russel T Davies hired Murray to work on Queer as Folk and that turned out super well (BAFTA nomination, anyone?) so he asked him to do the music for his reboot of Doctor Who. And then they got National Orchestra of Wales involved and Ben Foster became the orchestrator and you can understand why I love the music for Doctor Who 😉
Here is Murray playing a rendition of “I Am the Doctor” on piano while wearing a Rob Pattinson beanie and a Triumph t-shirt:
So, let’s get down to it… my top 3 most epic songs from the new Doctor Who are:

I will give some runners-up…
And if you were having any doubts about how much I like Doctor Who’s music, just know that I had 2 of the songs in my wedding (yes, for real) and I own all of the soundtracks. Yes, all.
But enough about me! What about you? What are your favorite songs from Doctor Who? What do you find to be the most epic? Which songs always make you cry?
