Awful Cover Songs: Sweet Dreams by Marylin Manson
I know there are no actual accounts of people visiting the Gates of Hell and returning to life to tell their story. But thanks to Dante’s Inferno and Piers Anthony’s Incarnations of Immortality, most of us have some image of what a journey through Hell might be like.
I rather enjoy the theatricality of Marilyn Manson. Still, I have no doubt this song is playing in the elevator that leads to the basement of the fiery gates of Hell. And then you’re still expected to pay the ferry man? It doesn’t seem fair. I’m a Manson fan- yes! But if Hell had a soundtrack this song would be it’s hit single. Oh c’mon. That’s funny.
Annie Lennox provides plenty of theatricality in the original song…and it’s a very good song!
