Sing, Sang, Sung – “I Can’t Decide” By Scissor Sisters

Fans of “Doctor Who” might understand why I’ve picked this song. Besides my being sleepy.

Once again, fatigue from exhaustion and simply arguing with too many people on the internet that just don’t quite get what you’re saying, in that they usually assume the opposite… It’s seriously tiring. One day I’ll stop.

But, instead, I spent my “not-on-the-road” time today catching up on my “Doctor Who.” I’m on the holiday specials before Matt Smith takes over as the 11th Doctor. Which means I just got finished with Donna Noble.

Donna, regrettably, looks quite similar to someone who was once my closest friend. Lord knows what we are now. Not talking at the moment, somewhat estranged… But she’s still someone I care about quite a bit. Beyond looking like her, Donna had similarities in her brash yet occasionally emotional style… Other than that, Donna’s one of the funniest, funnest things to happen to “Doctor Who.” David Tennant and Catherine Tate had a fantastic chemistry on-screen that wasn’t wasted by attempting to make their chemistry romantic. She was, to date, my favorite companion of the Doctor’s, and that won’t likely change.

So, her exit from being the Doctor’s companion? It pissed me off. A lot. And made me extremely sad. I cried a bit, even though I’d known what would happen for a long time. (Sometimes I read ahead… Yes, I’m terrible, but to be fair, I read ahead a long time ago.) I seriously considered giving up on the show then. But I’m not. Not yet. Pushing forward, that’s me. Plus, Karen Gillan plays a Scottish, redheaded kissogram in her first episode? I don’t mind that. And she’s less than a year older than me! Clearly, I need to find myself acting in Scotland soon.

…anyway.

With “Doctor Who” often on my mind lately, and the (in my opinion) sadistic and depressing nature of Donna’s sending-off, Scissor Sisters’ song “I Can’t Decide” came to mind. Particularly because it was played during the third episode of a three-parter featuring recurring Who villain The Master to great effect. Being that he’s sadistic and crazy, I thought it fit.

And, hey! The music video I found is made up of clips from the show, including the one where he sings along and torments the Doctor and his companion’s family (Martha Jones at the time). So it’s very “Doctor Who” oriented today.

I guess I should say… adult language ahead? Yeah. And the song, when you think about it, is as twisted as The Master… Bouncy, catchy tune, sadistic and awkward lyrics. Fun times for all!

“I Can’t Decide” – Scissor Sisters

It’s not easy having yourself a good time
Greasing up those bets and betters
Watching out they don’t four-letter
Fuck and kiss you both at the same time
Smells-like something I’ve forgotten
Curled up died and now it’s rotten

I’m not a gangster tonight
Don’t want to be a bad guy
I’m just a loner baby
And now you’re gotten in my way

I can’t decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you’ll probably go to heaven
Please don’t hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It’s cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We’re going for a ride

It’s a bitch convincing people to like you
If I stop now call me a quitter
If lies were cats you’d be a litter
Pleasing everyone isn’t like you
Dancing jigs until I’m crippled
Slug ten drinks I won’t get pickled

I’ve got to hand it to you
You’ve played by all the same rules
It takes the truth to fool me
And now you’ve made me angry

I can’t decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you’ll probably go to heaven
Please don’t hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It’s cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We’re going for a ride

Oh I could throw you in the lake
Or feed you poisoned birthday cake
I wont deny I’m gonna miss you when you’re gone
Oh I could bury you alive
But you might crawl out with a knife
And kill me when I’m sleeping
That’s why

I can’t decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you’ll probably go to heaven
Please don’t hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It’s cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We’re going for a ride

One thought on “Sing, Sang, Sung – “I Can’t Decide” By Scissor Sisters

  1. They watched with interest as Dougherty examined the sphere. The Toclofane were the stuff of nightmares. They were nearly impervious to harm and took sadistic delight in killing people in the most painful way possible. Martha shuddered as she remembered Russia—the Toclofane caught the woman helping her escape. She screamed for twenty minutes before she died. Martha had been close enough to feel hot drops of blood splatter on her cheek. If she hadn’t had the TARDIS key—but dwelling on it did no one any good.
