New Release: Placebo- Try Better Next Time

PLACEBO announce new album "Never Let Me Go" (out March 25) and UK & EU  Headline Tour : r/popheads

March 25th is the release date of Placebo’s long awaited new album, Never Let Me Go. Already two songs have been released, “Beautiful James” and “Surrounded By Spies” and now a third, “Try Better Next Time.” This song has a Loud Like Love meets Sleeping With Ghosts vibe. I’d love for a move back towards the Meds era vibe but, I’m stoked either way. New Placebo is always a good thing and this song is a good one too!

Secret Songs: Placebo- Black Market Blood

maxresdefault.jpg

Placebo are no strangers to the hidden track, as their first three albums each had one at their respective ends. The two on their first two records were more experimental, instrumental songs, but on Black Market Music, there is an actual song. It’s a slow burner of a song and you can sort of get a glimpse of where the band was headed with their next album on it. The song “Black Market Blood” is one of the best songs in Placebo’s catalog and the best song on this album. It’s got all the elements that make the band who they are. It sure would be great to hear them play this one live one day.

Cover Song: Placebo (Depeche Mode)- I Feel You

This post is quite awesome as it features two of the best UK bands of all time as well as two huge favorites of mine. Back in 1999, Placebo released a cover they did of the great Depeche Mode song “I Feel You.” Originally the song was released as a fan club-only cassette in 1999, as well as a bonus track on the American edition of Placebo’s album, Black Market Music. Later on in 2003 as part of a bonus disc for Sleeping With Ghosts, it was released again. Depeche Mode is not an easy band to cover and do it well but, Placebo did it justice and the way Brian Molko sings, he really made it his own. I thoroughly enjoy both versions and each has their own vibe. I think you’ll enjoy this.

Title Tracks: Placebo

If there’s one band that has the title track down, it’s Placebo. Since their inception in the mid 90’s, Placebo has been one of the most consistent bands to release quality albums and songs. They are also one of my all time favorite bands and their live shows are always stellar. Throughout the years, my appreciation for Placebo has grown stronger and stronger for their willingness to evolve and stay true to themselves without compromising their artistic integrity. Take a moment and explore these gems.

Cover Song: Meg Myers (Kate Bush)- Running Up That Hill

MEG_MYERS_RUTH_FINAL-1024x1024.jpgMeg Myers is one hell of a talent. She’s got a very cool and unique voice and vibe. I’ve written about her a few times and really enjoy what she brings to the music world of today. Recently, Meg released a cover of the Kate Bush classic “Running Up That Hill.” Her version is unique to her and does what you should do with a cover, make it your own. This isn’t the first cover of this song that I’ve come to enjoy. Placebo did a cover of this song many years ago that has always been stuck out to me and many others as well. On this version, MegĀ  gives it a bit more energy and an optimistic vibe. Enjoy!

Songs In Film: Placebo in Cruel Intentions

p1059_1.jpg

The 90’s are my favorite time in music. So many landmark albums came out and shaped my musical taste and became the soundtrack to my life. Though it wasn’t just music, there were so many great films that came out then too. There was something truly remarkable about the combination of music and film during that time. One such combination that has always stuck in my head since I saw and heard it was the use of Placebo’s “Every You, Every Me” in the opening credits for the film Cruel Intentions. It fits so perfectly and sets the tone ever so dramatically.
