I felt like posting something a bit different to my usual taste this weekend.
We’re going back to the late 1990s with this one. I was in my mid to late teens and still trying to figure out my own identity. This era belonged to the goths, and was along time before the term “emos” existed.
Placebo burst on to the music scene in 1996 fronted by Brian Molko. It wasn’t until their third single release “Nancy Boy” that they achieved chart success. The song went to number 4 in the UK chart. Their sound, attitude and style tapped straight in to the young people of the time.
My favourite Placebo song is “Every You Every Me” taken from their second album “Without You I’m Nothing”. The song featured on the soundtrack to the movie “Cruel Intentions” and went to number 11 in the UK charts. Enjoy!
