Coin Operated Boy  

This song got stuck in my head a while back and is the reason I changed my livejournal's name to Coin Operated Blog.

Current Mood: quixoticcoin operated
Current Music: Coin Operated Boy - The Dresden Dolls

I found it just last night while looking for a better copy of the original (the official version has some weird artefacts at the beginning).

I had mixed opinions last night - some parts seemed very apt, but I didn't like how the emphasis changed from Riley to Spike. But I like it better on a second watch this morning. My favourite bits are a couple of times when her eyes go from side to side (suits clockwork and reminds me of the original video), "wrap my arms around you and pretend" and "all the other real ones that I destroy".

For the Buffy story timeline, it makes sense to end where it did, but I would have like to see what the vidder would do with the Riley and the last chorus (I think it would have to be Riley for the lyrics).

BTW, here's another Buffy vid (well, Faith vid) that I came across last night and really liked: http://bradcpu.livejournal.com/25240.html

Good song. New to me.

I'm also trying out my shiny new OpenID.
