Top 10 Songs by Placebo
The Top TenXW
This song is amazing, there's just something about it that gets me every time, it takes me to a different place.
I have heard let them a lot but I didn't know the name of the band I always loved the sound of this band even if I hear metal and heavy metal... The atmosphere and the vocals of their songs are great... Know them from a series... This song is great and their best for me but try to get closer or even in the top 10 list pierrot the clown... If you hadnt listen to it do it and you will see
The moment I heard it, it was the song I knew that had the greatest impact on me. It was sweet, sour, and bitter. It was good.
God, best song everV13 Comments
i love them all placebo are the best - chantella
This song came up in the worst time on my life, and just make everything easier and here I am, happy you are gone (sadness)
I mean people best song ever enough saidV4 Comments
I can't even describe with words, how this song makes me feel every time I listen it... I get shivers down my spine... Just listen to it, you will feel better soon!
First song from Placebo. Amazing song. They should really catch this song more and build album around it!V1 Comment
In my list this songs condenses the real placebo feel. It is caustic, sour and rebellious, sad but lively. This song reminds me the friend that introduced me to placebo. He was indeed blessed with lucky 7's, yet he miserably threw all his future taking drugs. And for me it was also a song to say good bye.
You would think a 8 minute song would just get boring half way through, right? NAH! Not this one! The only feeling you get midway is the awesome realization that the song is not over yet. The song itself is droning and quite beautiful but what makes it amazing, in my opinion, is the absolute heartwarming music video. CHECK IT OUT!
I love this song! It's the first This was the first I heard of the band, is simply spectacular! - Joedav
This music video makes me cry every time!V2 Comments
This song is so beautiful! And should definitely be at least in top ten of placebo's best songs, the lyrics are incredible and the guitar in the beginning of the song gets you immediately, I fell in love when I heard it the first time! Please vote for it!
The guitar and piano is just mesmerizing. Amazing song!V4 Comments
This is way to low on this list. The first song I heard by placebo and its still my favourite (as well as Teenage angst)
One of my favorite songs! I have loved this song for so long it is amazing!
21? FLIPPING 21?! This should be in the Top 5 along with Bitter End easily!
Best song everV2 Comments
I remember watching mtv when I was a little girl and this video came up, I fall in love with the song, so a few years later I heard this song in the radio, I listen to the lyrics, Google it, and discover placebo, thank you musical flashbacks
An amazing song that deserves much more than the 13# place on the countdown. It got an extremely good opening which proves that the song is in totaly whole other level. The drams and the guitar make it addicted. In my opinion it got to be at least in the top 5
One of the best of placebo I really like this song
One of my favorite songs of all timeV2 Comments
It's the song of the trailer of one of my favourite vampire movies "daybreakers" and it's awesome
My favourite song. Deserves to be #1
I love the vampire dires and hope one day I can meet elana stehen damon bonnie caroline matt tyler or talk to over phoneV1 Comment
I'm a metal fan and I don't like bands that don't have good guitars and drums.. But this band has a different style... It may have not a good sound back system.. But the atmosphere it makes makes a lot of theirs songs well.. Placebo singer got me in... His voice is trule amazing especially in this song love the part he says gravity no escaping gravity... Can't get it out of my head... This song is great.. Its best of all.. May placebo have a lot good work but this song is truly amazing and the best one here... My top 3 list would go like that: 1. Special K 2. Twenty years 3. Song to say goodbye
This song means much to me and every time I listen to it I can't help it, but miss "the good old times".
I think that this is an amazing song, deserves to be in a better place in this list, along with Every You Every Me... Which is great as well.V2 Comments
The most funny thing with this, its that I really forget to take my meds in this moment (when I first listened to this song) and it was like THE MEDS and then I met placebo, and yeah, that's because I love the song
I think meds it's one of the best placebo songs and the drums are incredible
Prolly one of the best songs out there.it's meaning is something that help people get out of drug addiction.Placebo really deserves respect for that songV3 Comments
This song is beautiful. It seriously needs to be higher
This song has a very deep sense. It is the legendary song! But it's a pity, that only few people understand it...
"Me and the dragon can chase all the pain away" is enough for this to be top 10
Wonderful song, it should be at least top-15V5 Comments
And then on the ranking of the placebo albums, you see this album (with this kind of masterpieces) down in the last place, HOW CAN PEOPLE EVER THINK THAT, it's the best album, yeah it is, it is
Nice song but could be lower than No.9
This is actually was the first sing I ever heared from Placebo, and I couldn't find any song more beautifully than this!V1 Comment
This is such a beautiful, one-of-a-kind love song. It makes me cry every time I hear it, and it stood as my wedding song. It has something that's unique to itself and something that's universal at the same time, but it was so hard choosing between all of their songs. But none beat this masterpiece.
You should listen to this song feat. By David Bowie
You just love this song because bowie liked it, and made a feat, but we all know there are better songs than this, come on!
Tragic, shattering masterpiece!V6 Comments
This song was written with so much emotion. Maybe more than some of the other brilliant songs from Placebo - Pure amazing.V3 Comments
And here begins my love to placebo
Brian and stef are so underratedV2 Comments
Such a solid song! Lyrics are gold, especially since this is the only song by placebo which has the word placebo in the lyrics! - " I took a vow of silence, when he reads his work to me, I swallow words like a... Placebo "
This song means the world to me, the lyrics - while they do not make sense to everyone - are so powerful and yet so simple at the same time. A truly outstanding and heartfelt song.
This song is amazing. I don't understand how it's not even in the top 20 at least (should be in top 10 in my opinion). Hands down my favourite song of all time.
The first song that really spoke to me lyrically, what really got me into music. Helped me find out who I was when I was so lost during a weird time in my life. That outro is just too good, gets me so happy. I remember when this was #46 on this list, I was speechless. Couple months later it's #16! Well deserved! Now for the top ten:) thank you placeboV4 Comments
I just fly somewhere high while listening this song
This should be the number one, damn
There is no running that can hide you
Forget your running I will find you!
Reminds me of my younger years. All the confusions, frustrations and disappointments I had.V1 Comment
Not only the top song of Placebo but a top song of all times!
I know you love the song but not the singer!
You have to hear it.. And then to love itV1 Comment
I'm laughing, 'cause this is my favourite song by them, and it's like #19
If you really like Placebo, give this song a try (better the acoustic version)
"Farewell the ashtray girl, forbidden snowflake, beware this troubled world, watch out for earthquakes, goodbye to open sores, to broken semaphore, you know we miss her... we miss her picture... sometimes it's fated, we disintegrated for fear of growing old... sometimes it's faded we assassinated it for fear of growing old"
Quite apart from the beginning of the song (I hold an image of the ashtray girl, of cigarette burns on my chest. I wrote a poem that described her world, and put our friendship to the test. And late at night, whilst on all fours, she used to watch me kiss the floor.. what's wrong with this picture? )... what he sings slays... seriously, you can't consider yourself a Placebo's fan if you don't have this song...
VOTE FOR THIS SONG
Just on Brett Anderson mood. He doesn't really looks a belgian citizen ;-)
I adore this song. My favourite placebo track.
Love this song. Upbeat and fun...V6 Comments
This song should be far higher than 31. Far far higher. The deeper meaning behind this song is beautiful. The way his voice interacts with the music is simply magical. Listen to it, you will not regret it.
This is one of those special Placebo tracks that is constantly and consistently played over and over again. WOW! It's powerful edgy ballad leaves you wanting more and more.
"If I could tear you from the ceiling, and freeze us both in time. I'd find a brand knew way of seeing, your eyes forever glued to mine"
Beautiful, trying to help someone who can't be helpedV5 Comments
