Marylin Manson had success with many covers he made in his career, like “Sweet Dreams” and “Tainted Love”. Now, he made another nice cover of “The Lost Boys” soundtrack, the classic “Cry Little Sister”, that was on this classic 1988 Joel Schumacher vampire movie.
In his tour to promote the new album “Heaven Upside Down”, he included in his set a cover of Gerard McMahon‘s “Cry Little Sister”.
The song was written by Gerard McMahon (under the pseudonym Gerard McMann) and Michael Mainieri and performed by McMahon for the 1987 soundtrack to the film The Lost Boys. The album peaked at number 15 on the Billboard 200, the single did not chart in the U.S.
McMahon has said that he “wanted it to be about the longing for family from a rejected youth’s perspective, which I went through myself and that many of us have felt.”
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
