“You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” – Marilyn Manson

Video

I can’t think of a better performer to cover Dead or Alive’s trashy Hi-NRG disco classic from the mid-1980s than Mr. Manson. I realize some people think this cover may be sacrilege, but Manson is really just Pete Burns with some added 1990s nihilism thrown into the mix. Yes, this was recorded in 2009 when such throwback nihilism was considered to be as corny as parachute pants. But I’m a huge fan of that trend.
