Top 10 Best Placebo Songs

The Top Ten
1 Every You, Every Me

Just found out about these guys not too long ago, and when I first heard this song I was hooked and loved it! Placebo doesn't seem to be very well known on this site but you should check them out.

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

This song is amazing, there's just something about it that gets me every time, it takes me to a different place.

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.

2 Nancy Boy

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!

Great song. It is one of the best songs about bisexuality ever.

I've loved this song since the first time I heard it.

3 Pure Morning

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 love this song! I am gonna vote all of um

I like me all's the songs of placebo 100% OK!

How its this song so good!?

4 Twenty 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!

I am 63 years young, am I allowed to say what an amazing song this is? Beautiful!

5 Without 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.

By far the best song by Placebo in my opinion. Kindy mellow and proggy, this is a masterpiece. Must say that I don't like what they did after Black Market Music, so I'm not the best man for judging Placebo as a whole.

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!

Best song by far, first one to add a decent riff to the band's signature sound in the 90's. Emotive, well written, more complex. Good

6 Special 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

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.

This song means much to me and every time I listen to it I can't help it, but miss "the good old times".

7 Song to Say Goodbye

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!

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.

This is my favorite song ever! Helped me to survive the rupture of relations with the girlfriend. I was lying on the bed for a two days continuously and listen this song again and again. And I felt a surge of positive emotions.

What do we have here? the best songs of placebo are from meds? so why in the better-worst rankings of their albums its meds so bad evaluated? come on! it's a wonderful album, just hear it when you are sad and you will see the greatness!

8 The Bitter End

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

My *best* Placebo song! The intensity of the music and the video is just powerful. It's my 'going out' song; I have it as the last track on all my CDs in my car - if I'm in a crash and survive, then that's the song I'm listening to.

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!

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

9 Teenage Angst

Reminds me of my younger years. All the confusions, frustrations and disappointments I had.

10 You Don't Care About Us

The most cool song

What a good song

The Contenders
11 Flesh Mechanic

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 "

I thought nobody but me even kwon this song! you semed to be a Placebo expert!

12 36 Degrees

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 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.

Should be around 36th

13 Special Needs

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!

I love this song sooo much! it has such a nice melody and rhythm. The music fits nicely with his singing voice

Love this song! And Bitter End

14 I Know

This song is beautiful. It's so emotional and almost haunting, it deserves to be higher.

One of the most emotional songs I know. My top song by Placebo along with Space Monkey.

Not only the top song of Placebo but a top song of all times!

I know you love the song but not the singer!

15 Running Up that Hill

My favourite song. Deserves to be #1

It's the song of the trailer of one of my favourite vampire movies "daybreakers" and it's awesome

16 Meds

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

How can this be on top 10, should be in top... what? it should be the number one!

I think meds it's one of the best placebo songs and the drums are incredible

17 Blind

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"

My personal favorite.

18 Commercial for Levi
19 My Sweet Prince

This song has a very deep sense. It is the legendary song! But it's a pity, that only few people understand it...

You are the one.

20 Follow 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!

Nice song but could be lower than No.9

21 Black Eyed

This song was written with so much emotion. Maybe more than some of the other brilliant songs from Placebo - Pure amazing.

22 Come Home
23 Julien

This is my favourite song from placebo, and possibly ever.

24 This Picture

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...


Try to listen the live version of this song.
The best one, according to me.

O, this is great song! Why didn't you listen it? Give it a shot guys, you will love it

I adore this song. My favourite placebo track.

25 Bruise Pristine

What!? This amazing song isn't in their top 66
Its their best song!
