Burnt Offerings 22
Burnt Offerings returns with Volume 22 and this week it is Ladies Night - Ladies with attitude that is.
We start in Boston , Massachusetts with Dresden Dolls featuring the dulcet tones of Ms Amanda Palmer with some of their self described Brechtian punk cabaret . This song is taken from their 2006 alum Yes Virginia
Dresden Dolls -Dirty Business
From Massachusetts (and indeed Virginia) we take the small hop to Pennsylvania to touch base with Alecia Beth Moore better known to you and I as Pink.
God is a D.J. is probably all the Pink that you will ever need and is certainly the only tune of hers that is likely to grace these pages
Pink - God is a D.J.
Lastly but not leastly we return to Boston to meet up with Rhode Islander the great Tanya Donely of Throwing Muses, The Breeders and Belly fame.
Not content with being a member of these three seminal bands she found time for some solo outings with this song being taken from her 2002 album Beautysleep
Tanya Donely - The Night You Saved My Life
More random nonsense next week (only 10 more volumes to go!)
