LIE: The Love and Terror Cult

OK, since I'm 47 and not 17, I think it's safe for me to have ordered the CD of Manson's music! (i.e., I'm not going to become a cult member; plus, when I listened to two of Manson's songs -- "Arkansas" and "Look at Your Game, Girl" -- I liked them and didn't get bad vibes at all).

What I'm looking forward to hearing is something raw and honest. If I hear any more daily office-lady conversations in the bathroom (or in the office), or any more Rachel Zoe-intonations/platitudes on Bravo, or any more "You messed with the wrong city" platitudes (re Boston), I'll start shrieking with the nothingness/insanity of it all. Sad that I look forward to Manson's music giving me a sense of REAL?


The songs (all written by Manson) were recorded in '67 and overdubbed in '68. (i.e., Yeah, people, these were PRE-Tate murders. When Manson still had hopes for himself.)

"Look at Your Game, Girl" – 2:03
"Ego" – 2:27
"Mechanical Man" – 3:18
"People Say I'm No Good" – 3:20
"Home Is Where You're Happy" – 1:29

"I'll Never Say Never to Always" – 0:41

"Eyes of a Dreamer" – 2:35
