After watching “The Doctor’s Daughter,” I downloaded the latest episode of Radio Free Skaro, to see what Warren, Steven, and Chris thought of the episode.
For anyone who’s not listened to an episode of Radio Free Skaro, they break down a bit like this:
- 0-10 minutes: They talk about the Doctor Who episode
- 10-35 minutes: They talk about anything but the episode. It may not even be Doctor Who-related.
- 35-45 minutes: They surf the internet looking for more things to talk about.
It’s a fun system, and it works.
In the latest episode of RFS, the topic of David Tennant’s musical tastes came up. Apparently, Tennant had given an interview with a Scottish newspaper, and he mentioned *gasp* that he liked to listen to Avril Lavigne. *gasp*
Tennant says, and I quote:
I’m quite an Avril Lavigne fan. And I know I shouldn’t be, I’m aware that that’s wrong on quite a few levels. She’s a fine, fine musician. She understands the pop world very clearly. She’s great! So if you’re reading this Avril… I mean, I’m ashamed of myself but you know, I still admitted it.
Okay, I’m going to confess that I, too, enjoy listening to Avril Lavigne.
Now, now, now, put away the pitchforks. Maybe I won’t use the word “fan” to describe myself. I don’t own any of her CDs, and I doubt that I ever will. And I think the song she did for Eragon, which is probably the most recent thing of hers I’ve heard, is an excretable mess. And I thought that “Sk8er Boi” was more interesting when I seriously misheard the lyrics.
Yeah, I’ll turn one of her songs up on the radio. I particularly like “My Happy Ending.”
She has a good voice, and she uses it. Her music is catchy, and it makes me feel happy when I hear it.
There. My confession. Like David Tennant, I also enjoy listening to Avril Lavigne.
