Yeah... i could deffinitly seeing Pierre being one of my favorites (I dont care! brian tottaly rocks that song) but the reason i went with DCFC was her emotion into that song... but Pierre is deff. second best.
i have no idea what this little guy means but it seems to fit  :tongue7:

I'll have to say 'Eisbar' although iTunes says 'Life On Mars?' and 'The Ghost in You'

In no particular order;

"Mein Herr" -- Amanda has the right voice for this song, and I always felt that if they're going to do a remake of the film, Cabaret, then she definitely needs to play Sally Bowles.
"I Don't Care Much" -- One of the best renditions -  I get very picky over this one because it's my favorite from the play - but Amanda sings it with excellent emotion and once again, her voice is spot on for the song.
"Science Fiction Double Feature" (both the Dolls version and Amanda's version) - Both versions are fun, and I wish I had Amanda playing Magenta when I saw Rocky Live recently...she sounds much better!
"Seerauber Jenny" - My namesake, and favorite song from Threepenny Opera, which they do extraordinarily well. They should just record an entire album of Brecht/Weill songs.
"Hit Me Baby One More Time" - The song has grown on me, and I commend the Dolls for making that happen.

Oh, and I also like Amanda's cover of "Rainbow Connection". :)

I've heard precious few of the Dolls' covers (and even fewer of the original versions) but my favorites would have to be either War Pigs (Black Sabbath) or Tous les Garcons et les Filles (Francoise Hardy).

"Mein Herr"-Absolutely one of my favorite Dolls covers.
"Two Headed Boy"-excellent. fucking excellent. made me love NMH.
"Pierre"-Was AMAZING live, at the first Dolls concert I went to. I'll never forget the looks on Brian's face during that song.
"I Will Follow You Into the Dark"-I love that song, but honestly, i like it better by Death Cab. Amanda did a great version, but i remain partial to Death Cab.
"Cosmic Dancer"-Great live. I'd never heard the original prior to hearing it by the dolls. I love it.

Two-Headed Boy

I just love that song, and their cover of it was perfect.

I Will Follow You Into The Dark is great too.

And I love Amanda's cover of Chemo Limo. I've heard people say they hate it, but I love it.
