Zombie Tunes

"Sweet dreams are made of these,

Who am I to disagree?

I've traveled the world and seven seas . . .

EVERYBODY'S looking for SOMETHING . . .

Some of them want to use you.

Some of them want to be used by you.

Some of them want to abuse you.

Some of them want to be abused . . . "


Marilyn Manson wails on.

"Man," says The Boy. "This song is really haunted."

"Haunted?"

"Yeah, it sounds like he is a Zombie. Did he come from a grave?"

"No. Florida."

** pause **

"Was it a grave in Florida?"

Thank you, Mark.

I'm old -- not only do I remember it, but I have the album.

I also have the Manson album with the cover.

I certainly did not mean to dis Annie Lennox. However, in this particular context, Marilyn Manson wailed on. Rock station and all that -- we have tried to listen to Radio Disney but The Boy doesn't care for their particular assortment of souless pop.
