Video for "Personal Jesus", 1989:

Originally, I was hunting this down for raqs, because she introduced me to the Marilyn Manson cover recently, but she was unaware it was a cover of this older song. I hadn't seen the video... since it came out, basically, I think. But I figured YouTube must have it. And then I thought, why not share it with everyone?

Now, the weird thing? This isn't the video for the song that I remember. :-/ So now I'm trying to figure out what video I *am* remembering, and what it could possibly be *for*.

Well, it's not like it's a "kids today!" thing. She's my age. ;-) And I was *never* a goth-girl, but we were in college at the time, it's not like we were *unaware* of Depeche Mode. My belief is that she somehow managed to write over the sectors of her brain that had been aware of the song from when it came out. Because there is no other logical explanation for how *I* would have known about it at that time, but she didn't.

Still... That's no excuse for thinking Marilyn Manson wrote an original song that's *that* good! =P

This is true. I can't think of anything that Manson originally wrote that was actually good.

I like "The Beautiful People". It was the only MM song I actually owned, prior to buying the "Personal Jesus" cover.
