Dresden Dolls – Coin Operated Boy

The Dresden Dolls – Coin Operated Boy

  • Activity types: vocabulary, crossword, gap fill, discussion.
  • Time: 30 mins.
  • Note: This is a single from The Dresden Doll’s self-titled debut album, released in 2004. The song expounds on the many advantages an artificial partner has over real ones in a tick-tock rhythm reminiscent of automata. The song has broad overtones of loneliness and a desire for a relationship with idealized physical affection but no personal sacrifice or chance of getting emotionally hurt (from Wikipedia). The song was used in a 2009 Italian television commercial for Seven backpacks.
