For those who don’t know, The Dresden Dolls were partly responsible for the goth cabaret movement to which current bands like My Chemical Romance owe a great, unacknowledged debt. They’re a power duo, and they’ve got a new album out called “No Virginia,” which is basically previously unreleased stuff and B-Sides, but it’s got a great cover of the Psychedelic Furs on it. It’s also got a cool studio version of their Jane’s Addiction cover (“I Would For You”), which I won’t post to encourage you to buy the album and support the band.

Plus, the new album gave me the idea for this post: Dresden Dolls covers! I’ve also included some originals that are available at their website, so you can hear a little more of what they’re about.

There’s a zip file of the ones that aren’t direct links from their site, so if you don’t see a savefile link for a song you want, it’ll be in that file. All covers are live except for Pretty in Pink, which is off “No Virginia,” as a teaser to encourage you to buy that album!

A is for A Night At The Roses.

B is for Beasties! Fight For Your Right to Party (Beastie Boys)

C is for Cosmic Dancer (T-Rex cover)
