Best of: Marilyn Manson

Marilyn Manson has always been a big part of my life, not in a psycho fan kind of way. It was a shocker to a close minded people from the small town I grew up in, mainly because of all the associations: satanism, devil, drugs, murders, etc.

As many others, I’ve found something more in Marilyn Mansons music, a release to all my feelings, my freakishness, weird hobbies and interests. Don’t get me wrong, I was never into killing small animals and playing satanists in my parents backyard. But for a small town audience, I was a freak.

What made me even more proud of being the local freak was, I myself was born on Jan 5th, just like Brian Hugh Warner. And what better day to celebrate my all time favourites, if not today, on our birthday. So, without further ado,  here are my top 10 tracks of Marilyn Manson.

No. 10

Tattooed In Reverse

No. 9

Killing Strangers

No. 8

Cupid Carries a Gun

No. 7

The Nobodies

No. 6

Heart-Shaped Glasses (When The Heart Guides The Hand)

No. 5

I Don’t Like The Drugs (But The Drugs Like Me)

No. 4

Coma White

No. 3

If I Was Your Vampire

No. 2

This Is Halloween

No. 1

Long Hard Road Out Of Hell

 

What would a celebration be without a bonus track? For those of you, who love christmas and for those, who hate them, but love mashups, you’re very welcome.

 

 

 

 

Decade wrap-up

It’s 2020, if you haven’t noticed yet and what better way to kick off new year and new decade by writing a totally cliche decade wrap-up post. I know, what you’re all thinking, another one of those weird posts, filled with Spotify links and playlists. I did consider it for a while and then it hit me. I wanted to do something different, reaching the depths of my memory, focusing on the albums that kind of shaped each year of the last decade for me. It doesn’t mean I only listen to one album the whole year, I’m not a freak, but those are just he reminders of how I felt back then.
