Marilyn Manson - Heart-Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides the Hand)

You mention Marilyn Manson to a person and immediately the reaction is either disgust or indifference. He conjures up the image of this grotesque image of resentment. But underneath all the make-up and showmanship there's a man who knows how to make good music . This the first single from his forthcoming sixth studio album Eat Me, Drink Me an album which was strictly a collaboration between himself and Tim Skold. "Don't break, don't break my heart, and I won't break your heart shaped glasses." Manson sings, this is quite clearly a pop song dressed up in rock clothing, its grimy its gritty but when the chorus comes in you can't help but sing along. Manson has been creating this kind of song all his career and long may that continue.
