Cry_Little_Sister_(front)For this week’s Soundtrack Saturday song, I wanted to pick one of my favorite songs from a soundtrack that best represents the season. The Lost Boys was a classic vampire film released in 1987 that not only had a great cast (Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland), but it had an amazing soundtrack with tons of great artists. The soundtrack included the likes of INXS with Jimmy Barnes, Lou Gramm, Roger Daltry, Echo & The Bunnymen, and today’s artist in Gerard McMann. Cry Little Sister (Theme From The Lost Boys) is a gothic rock/dark wave classic that still stands the test of time. I love the chorus because it sounds like he has a boys choir singing along with him along with the pulsating beats that follow that sound like a heart pounding. The song’s lyrics were often accused of being about incest, but McMann has stated that he, “wanted it to be about the longing for family from a rejected youth’s perspective, which I went through myself and that many of us have felt.” The track has been covered by other artists as well as having been remixed by McMann who has gone by G Tom Mac before. Check out the track below:
