Playlist Challenge, Day 692

Timbaland ft. Nelly Furtado & Justin Timberlake — “Give It To Me”

Top 10 Covers by Marilyn Manson

I had not fully appreciated how many songs Marilyn Manson has covered throughout his career — until now. I’m not going to include the ones he performed live that are not somewhere on the internet, because I’ve never heard them. Makes sense, right? 🙂

Here we go, in no particular order.

1. “The KKK Took My Baby Away” (The Ramones)

2. “Golden Years” (David Bowie)

3. “In the Ghetto” (Elvis Presley)

4. “Working Class Hero” (John Lennon)

5. “What Goes Around…Comes Around” (Justin Timberlake)

Guys. He covered Justin Timberlake. Oh my God. ❤

6. “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” (Johnny Cash)

7. “20th Century Boy” (T. Rex)

8. “Down in the Park” (Tubeway Army)

9. “Tainted Love” (Gloria Jones)

10. “Get My Rocks Off” (Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show)

I tried to focus on his less well-known covers, but I had to include “Tainted Love.” It’s just so good! Also, I have a couple of honorable mentions:

“You’re So Vain” (Carly Simon)

“This is Halloween” (Danny Elfman)

New Year, New Music

It is only the fifth day of 2018 and already, we’ve had multiple tracks from some of our favorite bands/artists.

1. Judas Priest: “Lightning Strike”

2. Breaking Benjamin: “Red Cold River”

3. A Perfect Circle: “Disillusioned”

4. Cane Hill: “It Follows”

5. Crashdïet: “We Are the Legion”

This was actually posted on December 30th. Still, I included it because the song is the debut of new singer Gabriel Keyes 🎶

6. Justin Timberlake: “Filthy”

7. Slaves: “Patience is the Virtue”

Obviously this is not a comprehensive list of every single released this week, but it’s a good place to start!

Throwback Thursday: “Just Got Paid”

Today, I was visited with a strong urge to revisit my “boy band” days. So without any hesitation, I dug out my copy of No Strings Attached, cranked it up, and sang along shamelessly! And that’s why NSYNC’s “Just Got Paid” is this week’s throwback track. 🙂
