Good Song But...

"I'm not ragging on Manson or anything, but just get Smells like Children and the Lunchbox Single instead. All these songs and more can be found on those EPs. If you just want Sweet Dreams, just download it. This single isn't worth your money because there isn't anything new on it that can't be found elsewhere. Great music but utterly pointless.
1. Sweet Dreams (Are made of These) - Smells like Children
2. Dance of the Dope Hats (Remix) - Smells like Children
3. Down in the Park - Lunchbox
4. Next Motherf****r (Remix) - Lunchbox

"Beware covers. They always bite. Guaranteed. Except this. With this Manson changes the song completely. Gone is the bad techno sound. In is a much nicer gothic metal sound. The song actually sounds like a song now rather than some cheesy happy dance stuff. Manson has turned out some real pants stuff, but this cover is one of his best works. Sweet Dreams is such a great riff, but the original song is dreadful. Boring happy techno stuff, Manson turns it into something far deeper, and far more listenable and inspirational."
Best of B-sides / 2 dance mixes / 2 slower covers

"This is a best of B-sides for Marilyn Manson's Portrait of an American Family era (1994). It kicks off with Manson's mainstream hit, which is a cover of the Eurithmic's Sweet Dreams. Mr. Manson puts his own personal twist on it, as it churns heavy guitars and Manson's unmistakable lyrics. It then goes to the supercharged Dance of the Dopehats remix from Charlie Closure (Keyboardist for Nine Inch Nails). This version is so much better than its original song Dopehat, because it is quicker and has a nice beat that dances from start to finish, something that current Manson songs are missing now. The third track on the import comes from the Lunchbox single and it's a cover of Gary Numan's Down in the Park. This song was far ahead of its time and it even sounds like something you would find on the Mechanical Animals album. It's a slower song, but not a bad song! Finally is Chris Vrenna's version of Lunch Box that also appears on the Lunchbox single. It is an amazing remix that received more radio play than the original song and features loud banging drums with Manson's raging vocals."
