While Marilyn Manson is known for his controversial provocative image and aggressive music, he and his band are also known for covering hit songs of yesteryear. He hit big when I was in junior high school with his cover of the 1983 hit “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)” by the Eurhythmics. More than a cover, it was a dark interpretation of a pop song. He’s also given a pitch black take on Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” and “Personal Jesus” by Depeche Mode. Recently, he took on one of my personal favorites: “Cry Little Sister” by English musician Gerard McMahon. If you remember, it was the haunting theme song frequently utilized in the 1987 vampire classic, The Lost Boys.
