  • Shirley Manson recorded a duet/cover with Marilyn Manson of The Human League's song "Don't You Want Me", with the intent of including it on the then-unreleased best of album Lest We Forget – The Best Of. Manson made his choice to record a cover of the popular track after reconciling with his contemplation of suicide.
