Ok, I'll admit it: I had no idea that "Cry Little Sister" was a cover song. I honestly thought it was an original Season's After tune. I've even interviewed the band about the song and they never mentioned it was a cover! So, the song was written by Gerard McMahon (under his pseudonym Gerard McMann) for the soundtrack to the 1987 horror flick The Lost Boys. Well, I've never seen the movie... so how would I know the song was a cover, right?
Last night, I went out to YouTube looking for some really random L.A. Guns song... and ended up seeing their version of "Cry Little Sister." I was intrigued, clicked and then realized that Season's After song I love so much was a cover! Let's just say I was excited, embarrassed and all annoyed all at the same time.
So, turns out, everyone and their mother has covered "Cry Little Sister." And you know what that means! It's time to pick your favorite version of the Gerard McMahon song "Cry Little Sister."
Here's the original:
