6. Amanda Palmer – Ampersand
The song tells a story – that’s the feel of its entirety; its four chords (and the epitome of explaining how to use the relative minor chord, in the bridge), its development of lyrical content and repetition of their reassurance.
The rich piano sound of the intro provides an interesting re-occurrence throughout the breaks in the song, and its percussive expression works well with the counter-melody of the strings.
Every song is better with a well put together film clip, too.
