Marilyn Manson Records ‘The Lost Boys’ Soundtrack Staple ‘Cry Little Sister’

When The Lost Boys was released in late July of 1987, it brought slews of teenagers to the theaters.  When those teenagers left the theater, they headed straight for their local record store and purchased the hit soundtrack to the film to continue the experience.  One of those teens must have been a young Brian Warner, because the man now known as Marilyn Manson has just recorded a version of The Lost Boys soundtrack staple, “Cry Little Sister”, for your listening pleasure.

The Lost Boys soundtrack consisted of a number of cover songs by popular artists of the day such as INXS and Echo and the Bunnymen and front men like Roger Daltrey and Lou Graham who were estranged from their original bands at the time, as well as a few original tracks from artists that we haven’t heard from since.  Ironically, one of those artists by the name of Gerard McMahon recorded the song that is most associated with the film entitled “Cry Little Sister”. read more

G Tom Mac Announces ‘Lost Boys’ Musical

Do you love The Lost Boys?  Do you also love Broadway musicals?  Well, it looks like your dreams may be about to come true!  In a conversation with Broadway World, G Tom Mac, the singer and songwriter of the film’s hit theme song “Cry Little Sister”, revealed that he will soon be releasing brand new music from an upcoming recording of A Lost Boys Story; a musical based on 1987’s beloved vampire film.

The soundtrack from the musical will be available in October and Mac shared his excitement about the project, saying that the potential musical is “…something that I’ve been working on for some years in development. I wanted to give a back story to the characters and tell where they came from, and how they became Vampires, & their rebellious nature and youthful uniqueness, yet keeping in line with the humor that worked so well with the horror in the film. I’ve written all new songs that bring out a good deal of depth in the plays story, songs like ‘Sleep All Day Party All Night,’ ‘Be One of Us,’ ‘Long Hot Summer’ (Michael & Stars theme), and the ever -fun ‘Death by Stereo’. The soundtrack will release late August to give the fans a good way to get the music in them in anticipation of the upcoming play.” read more
