Marilyn Manson got famous off a cover song (“Sweet Dreams Are Made of This”) and is now looking to capitalize on the success of his newly released official cover of Gerard McMahon‘s “Cry Little Sister”, which is the theme song to Joel Schumacher’s 1987 The Lost Boys.
The neon-soaked video, directed byBill Yukich, reveals that the song was produced by Tyler Bates.
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. Again, 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.
