Most people will likely remember Placebo from their hit single Pure Morning. While the band hasn’t since been able to match that song’s success, they are still around and creating some great music. Placebo’s fifth studio album, Meds, is out now and is an excellent addition to their catalogue. Several samples of the album’s tracks can be heard on the band’s official site here: http://www.placeboworld.co.uk/player/site.php
For my pick this week, I’ve chosen one of Placebo’s earlier tracks - Commercial for Levi. This song could almost be considered a lullaby if it wasn’t for lyrics about golden showers and spunk and bestiality. While the song may not have been a single, for obvious reasons, it is a standout track and one of my personal favourites.
