As I wrote before, I would do just about anything for Marilyn Manson to release a full-length covers album. Recently his rendition of Ministry’s “Stigmata” appeared on the Atomic Blonde soundtrack, but that was just a reminder that he’s a master at interpretation.
Over the years, Manson has released dozens of covers that have appeared on various OSTs and/or were shared online. In fact, Manson’s career was built on the success of his version of the Eurythmics” “Sweet Dreams Are Made of This”, and one of his most popular tracks is a take on Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love”. He’s covered John Lennon a handful of times, as well as AC/DC, Depeche Mode, and many others.
While touring his new album, Heaven Upside Down, part of his set included a rendition of Gerard McMahon‘s “Cry Little Sister”, which is the theme song to Joel Schumacher’s 1987 The Lost Boys! Now, Manson has revealed an officially recorded version of the song, available on all streaming services.
