The first video below is the fantastic cover of The Lost Boys theme song – Cry Little Sister originally performed by Gerard McMahon.
I’ve been listening to it a lot ever since it was released, but wasn’t aware it was released as a video too, so I decided to list up some of Marilyn Manson’s other cover songs as well.
I started listening to Marilyn Manson when Antichrist Superstar was released in 1996, and it didn’t take long until I got his previous releases as well. Sweet dreams (are made of this), originally by Eurythmics, was the first cover I heard by Marilyn Manson, and it’s still one of my favourites:
Personal Jesus, originally by Depeche Mode:
Some other covers he has done are:
- Tainted Love by Soft Cell
- This is Halloween from the movie The Nightmare Before Xmas (Danny Elfman)
- I Put A Spell On You by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
- Suicide Is Painless from the movie M*A*S*H
- God’s Gonna Cut You Down, a traditional folk song
- Five To One by The Doors
…and there are many more! Maybe someday they all will be released as an album or two?
