Dresden Dolls "Coin Operated Boy"

I always thought the Dresden Dolls had a steampunky feel to them, but couldn't quite put my finger on it. My friend Gretchen (who introduced me to their lovely tunes) called them punk burlesque, based on seeing them live.

Well this video confirms my suspcions. Very steamy, and very punky. (As usual, puns are fully intended.)

I especially like how this has been adapted for broadcast. If you've heard the cd or live version of this song, you'll know what I mean.'
