    Default How would you put together a post-Golden Age of Grotesque Best Of (EMDM-WAC)?

    Thinking about what I'd like to hear on a post-GAOG Best Of, assuming that there will probably be one at some point. If it's the same eighteen tracks as Lest We Forget I'd probably arrange it like this, assuming Manson is willing to revisit EMDM-BV and put them on the same level as the Bates records and WAC (I could, of course, very easily see a future Best Of completely ignoring those records altogether, which would be a shame). Mostly a singles collection like LWF. No room for "Saturnalia" unfortunately, which obviously belongs but which is probably too long. The biggest problem with this, I think, is that EMDM and THEOL still belong to Interscope, but something could probably get worked out.

    1. "Four Rusted Horses"
    2. "Deep Six"
    3. "Putting Holes In Happiness"
    4. "No Reflection"
    5. "KILL4ME"
    6. "Don't Chase The Dead"
    7. "The Mephistopheles Of Los Angeles"
    8. "Arma-Goddamn-Motherfuckin'-Geddon"
    9. "Overneath The Path Of Misery"
    10. "Heart-Shaped Glasses (When The Heart Guides The Hand)"
    11. "Perfume"
    12. "We Know Where You Fucking Live"
    13. "Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge"
    14. "Slo-Mo-Tion"
    15. "Tattooed In Reverse"
    16. "Infinite Darkness"
    17. "Into The Fire"
    18. "Cupid Carries A Gun"


    "God's Gonna Cut You Down", "This Is Halloween" and "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" as possible regional B-sides.

    To revenge the misdeeds of the ruling class, there existed in the middle ages, in Germany, a secret tribunal, called the “Vehmgericht.” If a red cross was seen marked on a house, people knew that its owner was doomed by the “Vehm.”

    All the houses of Europe are now marked with the mysterious red cross.

    I'm not including WAC for obvious reasons. I'll make a separate post later and update my answer since this place needs traffic anyways. Honestly the list isn't what I personally would do, but I think it's accurate as to what would get released. Certain non singles like Killing Strangers and If I Was Your Vampire seem to be popular with casuals/non fans.

    1. KILL4ME
    2. New or Previously Unreleased Song
    3. Cry Little Sister
    4. Putting Holes in Happiness
    5. SAY10
    6. The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles
    7. Slo-Mo-Tion (hate this song but I know it'd be on there)
    8. Running to the Edge of the World
    9. Cupid Carries a Gun
    10. If I Was Your Vampire
    11. No Reflection
    12. Four Rusted Horses
    13. Killing Strangers
    14. Heart Shaped Glasses
    15. Tattooed in Reverse (another song I'm not fond of)
    16. Evidence
    17. Deep Six
    18. God's Gonna Cut You Down

    Every album post THEOL has just been better than the last. So for me a "best of" is just go put on HUD.

    Fair enough, so if I had to put out a Lest We Forget 2.0:
    Deep Six
    You and Me and The Devil Makes 3
    No Reflection
    Say10
    Kill4Me
    Mephistopheles of Los Angeles
    3rd Day of a Seven Day Binge
    Saturnalia
    Slo Mo Tion
    Eat Me Drink Me

    Start fast and aggressive, gradually slow it down and close with what I consider one of the best album closers of all time, any artist, fight me.

    This is a cool question...Lemme think.

    1. Deep Six
    2. Cry Little Sister
    3. Arma-goddamn-motherfuckin-geddon
    4. No Reflection
    5. Heart Shaped Glasses
    6. The Mephistopheles Of Los Angeles
    7. Running To The Edge Of The World
    8. KILL4ME
    9. Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge
    10. If I Was Your Vampire
    11. SAY10
    12. Murders Are Getting Prettier Everyday
    13. Just A Car Crash Away
    14. We Know Where You Fuckin’ Live
    15. Warship My Wreck
    16. Overneath The Path Of Misery
    17. Putting Holes In Happiness

    Something like that maybe? Obviously if he ever did another greatest hits it would include the new album. But as it’s one week to go I just used pre WAC Era songs.

    I see. How many from new album would make it onto the greatest hits? And what would you replace? (We dont need the songs from WAC.. just the number of songs you would include and which songs you would take out of your current list)
