The Top Ten

Every You, Every Me
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.

2Song to Say Goodbye
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!

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!
Love this song! And Bitter End

Prolly one of the best songs out's meaning is something that help people get out of drug addiction.Placebo really deserves respect for that song

6Twenty Years
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!

7Running Up that Hill
Its the song of the trailer of one of my favourite vampire movies "daybreakers" and it's awesome
I love the vampire dires and hope one day I can meet elana stehen damon bonnie caroline matt tyler or talk to over phone

8Follow the Cops Back Home
This is actually was the first sing I ever heared from Placebo, and I couldn't find any song more beautifully than this!
Listen to sample

9Without You I'm Nothing
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
So special and unique song!
The part from simply stated a masterpiece
Listen to sample

10The Bitter End
The first song I've heard from Placebo and still my favourite!
Brian's voice is one of a kind.
Also I never get tired of listening to their songs!
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

The Contenders

11Special K
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.

Joint best song along with 36 degrees on their best album, "Placebo". Without you I'm nothing is a masterpiece, yes but so is their debut and its also less dark than WIYIN, that's why I pick Placebo.
