Holiday Video of the Day, Part 1: Amanda Palmer and Vermillion Lies feat. Annie Clark, “What’s the Use of Wond’rin’?”

George Lang Published: December 23, 2009

What's the Use of Won'drin'? -Amanda Palmer & Vermilion Lies- from Amanda Palmer on Vimeo.

This is not a Christmas song per se — it’s a Rodgers and Hammerstein classic from “Carousel” — but it was shot at the Great Dickens Christmas Fair in San Francisco last year, and it’s quite beautiful in a Ghosts of Christmas Past kind of way.

No, Annie Clark of St. Vincent is not in the video, but she plays on this track from the Ben Folds-produced “Who Killed Amanda Palmer?” Calm down.
