the twentyseventh video is coin-operated boy by the dresden dolls. the lyrics can be found here.

this is punk cabaret. you can listen to it.

i like it because… it’s such a fresh, intelligent, somewhat ironic and cute story, put into a nice punk cabaret song. just so beautiful! i learned about this from a gothic sampler. this was one of the best tracks on that album. it was only later when i saw the video, but that made the song even better.

I looooove it and always remember me standing next to the train station in Munich where I first heared that fantastic song!

the song is really great :) unfortunately i don’t remember if i’ve heard it live yet. i’ve seen the dresden dolls live a bit more than four years ago, and it was a really great show, but i simply cannot remember whether they played that song or not…
