Hi there
Does anyone knows the name of the 2 songs that used to be played before MM intro in this last tour? These are the ones that start being played while the lights aren't of yet.

Can anyone clarify my doubts?
Thanks

I was asking this in the Birmingham gig thread and was told they where : 'I feel just like a child' by Devendra Banhart and then 'My shit's fucked up' by Warren Zevon. Both great songs in their own right (never heard them before), but in the context of pre-show, fits so well.

I don't believe so, do you think they sounded differently at the show? I remember them as the originals sounds....

well, at least for this one "My shit's fucked up".... Could have been for the crowd noise, but.... I am not 100% convinced (yet...)


The other one seemed pretty familiar, so I just guess it was the one who was played (well, I am searching them in youtube and spotify)

no wonder it sounded differently... i was listening to the acoustic or live version...

Edit:

By the way, any thoughts about why where these 2 songs in particular chosen to be played before the concert? And what does it mean in relation with Manson?

I was hearing these songs for the first time at the Birmingham, but at the time I thought they were both really good, so I'm glad they've been identified here.

"My Shit's Fucked Up" was on the soundtrack for "Californication," of which Manson is a fan, and he's pals with Devendra Banhardt.

For starters, lol.

Same here, nm - never heard these before till the brummy gig. They where excellent, and distinctly louder than the other songs if I remember right.

As to why - I guess they explicitly, and totally, refer to Manson ... his shit is clearly fucked up. And childish .. utter dependency on someone. Think they both sum him up so well.

It seemed like that anyway when stood listening to it, and still seems that way now.

So it is a waste of time to assume than when Manson was playing those songs before the concert he was being ironic with himself and all the ideology of MArilynmansoN (you know, the word MAN, that was being used in the beginning of this new era)?

Btw, I was aware of the music in the Californication (later, when I was told it was this music), but not that Manson enjoyed Californication or who was he pals with...

I wouldn't say it's a waste of time necessarily, but it should be kept in mind that it IS purely based in speculation. It's an interesting thought, though.

But, yeah, his fandom of "Californication" and his friendship with Devendra are both matters of public record since he's posted about each on MySpace...so that much is certain, at least.

Aren't all the post in the section "Evidence – Analyses; Analysis and other dissection of Marilyn Manson's art" speculation as well? Just because you don't have much of a big idea of what was crossing Manson's mind when he produced his songs?

So, where do we stay? Was Manson being ironic with himself :D
