End of the year playlist- #14- Amanda Palmer- The Point Of It All

December 11th, 2008

I’m not entirely sure what this song is about. A drug addict friend? An Alzheimer’s patient? Palmer’s solo outing isn’t for everyone (then again, neither is her day job with The Dresden Dolls), but even if you don’t care for her gothic cabaret theatrics, “The Point Of It All” is about as captivating as a piano ballad can be. It’s gorgeous, it’s haunting. Like The Dresden Doll’s best work, you’ll stop whatever you’re doing and listen.
