    Default Great Big White World (and Mechanical Animals) / Spaceman

    I have no idea if it was said before, I searched here but got nothing so if its nothing new, feel free to delete this.

    Well, we all know Great Big White World, so I´ll just post Spaceman here.

    Besides the similar sound between this song and the album, there are a few connections that make me think that this had a big influence over how Mechanical Animals turned out.

    Manson - Babyloon zoo:

    And I dreamed I was a spaceman // Spaceman, I always wanted you to go into space man
    Because it's a great big white world and we are drained of our colors, In a world so white what else could I say? // It's time to terminate the great white world, Morbid fascinations television takes control, Decimation diffrent races fall
    Inauguration of the Mechanical Christ // Intergalactic Christ

    And there´s also the themes, television, religion, ¨Spaceman¨ talks about ¨Homophobic jokes, Images of fascist votes¨ 2 subjects well represented in the MA era. Keep in mind that Babylon Zoo came before Antichrist Superstar.

    Also, there is a song on their album, ¨Dont feed the animals¨ which reminded me of the title Mechanical Animals.

    I've never heard Manson himself cite it as an inspiration in any interviews, but if he and Twiggy weren't influenced by this, I'm a kitten.
