One of my piano students recently introduced me to the music of the Dresden Dolls, a
goth Brechtian punk cabaret duo whose music is very much influenced by the world of Kurt Weill, the Weimar cabaret, and its recent successor, dark cabaret. Here they are in Coin-Operated Boy, a heavily piano-flavored song that is by turns post-Weillesque, pop, and punk.
