Would You Buy “Daleks Sing Gilbert & Sullivan” On CD?

As a former full time vocalist, I fancy all sorts of music, including Broadway and opera. While I never performed in The Pirates of Penzance or The Mikado, I have certainly enjoyed my fair share of Gilbert and Sullivan. If you’ll reference the video above, I’ll invite you to experience something a musical paradox unlike anything else in the universe: Daleks Sing Gilbert and Sullivan!

Utterly unique and it would certainly be fitting to say that I’m on the cusp of speechlessness. Gilbert and Sullivan’s works have been covered by many companies, and now they  can add the scourge of Skaro to that list as well!

Now that you’ve had time to experience the majesty, dear reader, the question does remain: would you buy Daleks Sing Gilbert and Sullivan? Let us know below!

(With thanks to Elton)

“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.

    YES! I want that!

    What the hell was that all about??? :)

  3. avatar Christine says:

    Probably. I’ve got “I want to spend Christmas with a Dalek” which has a rather bad Dalek voice. This sounds a lot more genuine Daleky!

    When I listened to this I couldn’t help but be reminded of Angus McGonagle. the argyle gargoyle that gargles Gershwin from the Muppet Show Star Wars Episode.

    I don’t think Nicolas Briggs has anything to worry about!


  5. First thing I think is ‘why are all those Daleks the same height?’. Because, you know, they shouldn’t be.

  6. avatar Ranger says:

    Absolutely brilliant – especially the last song. The delights that a twisted mind can come up with!


  7. Yes. but why stop there? They should do La Cage Aux Folles. Also, the other version, the Birdcage.

    Glorious! That’s the best laugh I’ve had already day.
