Song Pick of the Week

Posted by James H> on 2006-04-18 21:43:05
 
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.

"Commercial For Levi"

You're the one who's always choking Trojan
You're the one who's always bruised and broken
Sleep may be the enemy
But so's another line
It's a remedy
You should take more time

You're the one who's always choking trojan
You're the one who's showers always golden
Spunk & bestiality well it's an Assisi lie
It's ahead of me
You should close your fly

I understand the fascination
The dream that comes alive at night
But if you don't change your situation
Then you'll die, you'll die, don't die, don't die
Please don't die

You're the one who's always choking trojan
You're the one who's always bruised and broken
Drunk on immorality
Valium and cherry wine
Coke and ecstasy
You're gonna blow your mind

I understand the fascination
I've even been there once or twice or more
But if you don't change your situation
Then you'll die, you'll die, don't die, don't die
Please don't die [x4]
