Hi soulmates,
it's another Wednesday with no important Placebo anniversary, so we meet again for our series of lullabies.

With today's beautiful ballad, we end the era of the Battle For The Sun album, which was not too inclined to slow songs compared to the previous Meds album.

Here we see that this also confirms the departure from the dark Med's ballads towards the light, which does not eliminate the problems of human coexistence, but helps to see them more clearly and positively. ๐๐ฎ๐ญ ๐ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ง ๐จ๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ฌ ๐š๐ฅ๐›๐ฎ๐ฆ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ซ๐ž ๐ฐ๐š๐ฌ ๐š๐ง ๐ž๐ฑ๐œ๐ž๐ฉ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง.

”There is definitely a bigger sense of hope and optimism on this record, but Placebo's music and lyrics are never going to be like a dance in a field of flowers you know? There is always the fascination in there with the darker side of human emotions.”

It's the tenth track on the BFTS album, right after Julien, whose energetic sound makes us dance... and then comes this bitter-ironic-melancholic and very emotional ballad.

"A melodic break-up song, ‘Happy You’re Gone’ is rumoured to be about the band’s split from former drummer Steve Hewitt (although this has never been confirmed) and finds Molko in turmoil on its chorus “How many times? How many times? Now I can't look you in the eye”. The swelling strings and more restrained pace were a marker of this period of Placebo, pointing to the direction they’d take on next album Loud Like Love."

Okay, it could just be another sad song symbolizing the end of a relationship between two people.
But this lullaby describes exactly the state where you convince your mind that this stage of life is over, while your heart is full of living painful wounds, bleeding and crying.
And Brian really knows how to get me into these emotions.

Not only with his lyrics, but especially with his voice.

How gently he begins...

...as if the narrator wanted to say - the memories of what you did to me will haunt you even where you least expect it...

Breathe me every time you close your eyes
Taste me every time you cry
This memory will fade away and die
Just for today, breathe me and say goodbye
How many times? How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times? How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
See me, in the eyes of another's child
Turn away, when you see me walking by
Once in a while
This melody will fade away and die
Just for today, breathe me and say goodbye
How many times? How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times? How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
And I don't even want to try
My my
'Cause every word from you is a lie
My my
How many times? How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times? How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye

Could this be a song about Steve Hewitt's bitter departure from the band? It certainly can, and many of you think so.
Honestly, I don't care whose departure cut such deep wounds in Brian's heart that he wrote this song.

Anyway, Brian has been at pains to point out in concerts ๐’•๐’‰๐’‚๐’• ๐’•๐’‰๐’Š๐’” ๐’”๐’๐’๐’ˆ ๐’Š๐’” ๐’‚๐’ƒ๐’๐’–๐’• '๐‘ต๐‘ถ๐‘ฉ๐‘ถ๐‘ซ๐’€'...

It's also possible that Brian is getting a little tired of people making so many parallels, searching for direct connections between each line of every song and his private life...
However, with Brian's sense of poisonous irony, we can also count on the fact that this was someone very important in his life...and maybe it's the rendition of more such relationship breakdowns, just suddenly, in some strange melancholic mood, this ballad was born in the composer's mind.

...at the end of the video from ๐‚๐ข๐ซ๐ช๐ฎ๐ž ๐‘๐จ๐ฒ๐š๐ฅ ๐ข๐ง ๐๐ซ๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฅ๐ฌ, ๐๐ž๐ฅ๐ ๐ข๐ฎ๐ฆ ๐จ๐ง ๐‰๐ฎ๐ง๐ž ๐Ÿ, ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ— I'm sharing with you, Brian said something very special๐Ÿ’—.

Can this help us to better understand this lullaby?

๐Ÿ’ฆ“…๐‘ฐ๐’•’๐’” ๐’๐’Œ, ๐’ˆ๐’–๐’š๐’”, ๐’š๐’๐’– ๐’„๐’‚๐’ ๐’ƒ๐’† ๐’”๐’†๐’๐’”๐’Š๐’•๐’Š๐’—๐’† ๐’•๐’๐’, ๐’š๐’๐’– ๐’„๐’‚๐’ ๐’„๐’“๐’š… ๐‘พ๐’๐’Ž๐’†๐’ ๐’๐’๐’—๐’† ๐’Ž๐’†๐’ ๐’˜๐’‰๐’ ๐’„๐’“๐’š, ๐’…๐’๐’’๐’• ๐’š๐’๐’–?.. ๐‘ซ๐’๐’’๐’• ๐’š๐’๐’–?!”๐Ÿ’ฆ

What made Brian make such a tender statement to all the men in the venue?
We probably won't know the exact reason.

But my thoughts lead me to the topic of men's mental health, which concerns both Brian and Stefan personally and Olga had the same idea in one of her old posts.
While preparing a post about Project Alpha, I learned that the percentage of male suicides in the UK is on the rise. The social paradigm is mainly to blame, it's the pressure that leads men to suppress their emotions because that's how the male role in society has historically been set up. And it is clear that this topic does not only concern men in the UK...
And since human consciousness has been undergoing a profound transformation in recent years, it is time to say:

๐Ÿ’—๐‘ซ๐’†๐’‚๐’“ ๐’ˆ๐’–๐’š๐’”, ๐’Š๐’•'๐’” ๐’•๐’Š๐’Ž๐’† ๐’‡๐’๐’“ ๐’„๐’‰๐’‚๐’๐’ˆ๐’†, ๐’š๐’๐’– ๐’„๐’‚๐’ ๐’„๐’“๐’š, ๐’š๐’๐’– ๐’„๐’‚๐’ ๐’ƒ๐’† ๐’”๐’†๐’๐’”๐’Š๐’•๐’Š๐’—๐’†, ๐’‚๐’๐’… ๐’Ž๐’๐’”๐’• ๐’Š๐’Ž๐’‘๐’๐’“๐’•๐’‚๐’๐’•๐’๐’š - ๐’„๐’๐’Ž๐’Ž๐’–๐’๐’Š๐’„๐’‚๐’•๐’† ๐’˜๐’Š๐’•๐’‰ ๐’š๐’๐’–๐’“ ๐’‘๐’‚๐’“๐’•๐’๐’†๐’“๐’” ๐’‚๐’ƒ๐’๐’–๐’• ๐’†๐’—๐’†๐’“๐’š๐’•๐’‰๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ, ๐’•๐’†๐’๐’ ๐’•๐’‰๐’†๐’Ž ๐’‰๐’๐’˜ ๐’š๐’๐’– ๐’‡๐’†๐’†๐’.

Soulmates, I hope you enjoy this lullaby as much as I do. And again I will be glad for your open hearts. Let me know in the comments if this song also touches you emotionally and if it connects you with a bittersweet memory. And what do you think of Brian's words at the end of the song?

๐‘ท๐’๐’‚๐’„๐’†๐’ƒ๐’ is one of the most written about bands in the foreign music press. In ๐‘บ๐’˜๐’†๐’…๐’†๐’ you read a few reviews and a short interview in the evening papers, despite the fact that one of the country's biggest rock stars is in this international trio. Now they are in ๐‘บ๐’˜๐’†๐’…๐’†๐’.

They have played at ๐‘ซ๐’‚๐’—๐’Š๐’… ๐‘ฉ๐’๐’˜๐’Š๐’†'s 50th birthday party, supported ๐‘ผ๐Ÿ and had a dozen singles on the ๐‘ผ๐‘ฒ charts. Their third album has been showered with critical acclaim and with that behind them they have been on tour pretty much all year. As if that wasn't enough, they're being chased by all the world's press wherever they go. In ๐‘บ๐’˜๐’†๐’…๐’†๐’, however, ๐‘บ๐’•๐’†๐’‡๐’‚๐’ and ๐‘ท๐’๐’‚๐’„๐’†๐’ƒ๐’ are relatively unknown. Mostly perhaps because ๐‘บ๐’•๐’†๐’‡๐’‚๐’ didn't grow up in ๐‘บ๐’˜๐’†๐’…๐’†๐’, but most likely because the media doesn't know about it yet. The group will be playing a Swedish show at the ๐‘จ๐’“๐’—๐’Š๐’Œ๐’‚ ๐‘ญ๐’†๐’”๐’•๐’Š๐’—๐’‚๐’ this summer, bringing with them songs from their incredibly strong album ๐‘ฉ๐’๐’‚๐’„๐’Œ ๐‘ด๐’‚๐’“๐’Œ๐’†๐’• ๐‘ด๐’–๐’”๐’Š๐’„. When they stopped off for a gig in ๐‘จ๐’Ž๐’”๐’•๐’†๐’“๐’…๐’‚๐’Ž, I took the opportunity to call up the band's Swedish bassist ๐‘บ๐’•๐’†๐’‡๐’‚๐’ ๐‘ถ๐’๐’”๐’…๐’‚๐’.

๐Ÿ’ฌ We're a bit tired today, we visited our friends from Rammstein and celebrated that their album is number one in the German charts and typically only number two in the Swedish one, he laughs. We went to one of their favourite places yesterday, some goth club, that's their style. Otherwise, the tour has been going on for a while now, so the break yesterday was nice. Today we're playing here in Amsterdam after we've done a lot of Eastern Europe.

๐Ÿ’ฌ Well, we met Rammstein at a festival in Australia and we have so much fun together, so it's always fun to meet them. Otherwise we are good friends with PJ Harvey's band and some others but we don't have time to meet many people during the tour as there are gigs almost every day.

I guess the question is how Swedish he feels today.

๐Ÿ’ฌ I guess I have mixed feelings about Sweden, it's mostly personal, then we're not that big there, he says happily. I was born in Gothenburg but we moved to Vรคllingby outside Stockholm quite soon. I lived there until I was eight and then we moved to Luxembourg, as I said. It's been a while since I've been home now, but I try to make time to visit Sweden from time to time.

The group does not hide the fact that they are gay. ๐‘บ๐’•๐’†๐’‡๐’‚๐’ points out to me that he is proud to be gay and that ๐‘ฉ๐’“๐’Š๐’‚๐’ is too and that ๐‘บ๐’•๐’†๐’—๐’† is bisexual. Often the media tries to focus on their orientation and other things, but as ๐‘บ๐’•๐’†๐’‡๐’‚๐’ puts it himself:

๐Ÿ’ฌ They're trying but they're not going to succeed.The music is the most important thing and no matter how you twist and turn Placebo's music, it is quite timeless. The first album could be the last if it weren't for the production.

๐Ÿ’ฌ We were quite young when we made the "Placebo" album, I was only 19 years old. It was a low-budget production and we only had three weeks, so it probably feels more like a good demo today. The songs I think still hold up and I'm very happy with them. We still play a couple of songs from that record live.

๐Ÿ’ฌ It's not that strange. Brian and Steve have been listening to hip-hop for a long time and in "Spite & Malice" in particular there was a hole that we didn't know what to do with. We knew the rapper Justin Warfield from before and we said; why not try him? That's the way it is, and the type of music. I think it was very successful so it might come back.

๐Ÿ’ฌ I guess the three of us have in common that we all like PJ Harvey, and we hang out with her band a lot too. Her music is modern yet timeless, something I think our music is too, maybe that's why we like her. Otherwise, I guess I grew up with Depeche Mode as big idols. As a Swede I have listened to some Swedish synth bands too, Mobile Homes, but they have stopped now I think. Then I try to buy some Swedish music too. Lately I've been buying Kent's B-sides, Covenant, Bob Hund and Robots latest. Robot I think is very good, have you heard them?

๐Ÿ’ฌ I don't think it's that strange. On the last album we use a lot of machines, which I think is natural because I grew up with that kind of music. On the first records we used more of a normal set up with guitar, bass, drums and vocals. This time I think it's more modern sound, but of course it still sounds Placebo.

๐Ÿ’ฌ Napster is more like a jukebox, you discover music that you might otherwise never have come into contact with. I don't think it affects record sales either as the public still buys just as many records. Should it start to affect the sales of our records, it's not good, but for now it's okay.

To avoid confusion, I should put everything about this song in perspective:
๐’๐Ž๐”๐‹๐Œ๐€๐“๐„๐’ is a rockier, more guitar driven version of the studio song ๐’๐ฅ๐ž๐ž๐ฉ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐–๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐†๐ก๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ฌ from the 2003 same-titled album.

However, we all know this version from concerts, because Placebo included it in the setlist instead of the original Sleeping With Ghosts.

Another difference is that “Soulmates” was recorded at Livingstone Studios in London and produced by Dimitri Tikovoi while “Sleeping with ghosts” was recorded at The Townhouse Studios (also located in London) and produced by Jim Abbiss.

Brian changed the order of the verses in the chorus a little bit to make this lullaby absolutely perfect.

At the beginning there are only simple piano notes... After a while, Brian's voice joins in, full of tenderness and so vulnerable...

In the second verse, Brian's voice is joined by the sound of bells and violin, which is soft at first and gradually becomes more and more insistent...

Brian repeats these lines very gently a few times before he concludes

Listening to this version, you will simply melt away, overwhelmed by your love of Placebo's music. Plus, the lyrics remind me that now more than ever, this song sadly fits the events of this time... when none of us know what tomorrow will bring, as the powers of this world play dice with our lives...

Today's second lullaby is just as beautiful as the first.
It comes from a song that in its fast, I would say almost rock punk form, reminds me of Placebo from the first album...

The prominent noisy guitars were swapped for piano and this again made space for Brian's even more challenging voice, turning the starkly punk version into a breathtaking confession of his desire for life change.

There is so much truth in those verses that touches me personally so I always feel very moved when I listen to this song.

๐ŸŽ™️"Phew! What it is to know each other, we easily met fourteen years ago. Through mutual friends in Madrid at an exhibition, but I don't know the exact year. Well, not fourteen... more! It would be 2002 or 2003. And the group started in 2012. It came naturally: we talked a lot, we did a lot of things, we remixed each other... And in the end we had this idea, it was nice to do it and we did it.

I don't know how you feel, for me it is a song illuminated by spring rays, those that bring rebirth after a cruel, dark, hard winter. It is, along with Speak In Tongues, the most positive song on the whole album. The song directly calls out - look at us, after all we've been through, we rise like a mythical phoenix bird from the ashes, stronger, more beautiful, happier, full of faith in a better tomorrow.

"Let me put it this way — I have a theory about drugs and alcohol. There is a limited amount that a human being is able to consume in a course of a lifetime. Some people are sensible and consume the amount that’s able to stretch a lifetime. Some people who are not so sensible, like me and Stefan, consume that limited amount in a period of about 10 years. There comes a point that it doesn’t do anything for you that isn’t negative. In fact, it destroys your life and you lose everything. Then one has to either surrender to that, which most people do, which begins the inevitable descent to nothingness and emptiness. Or one takes the courageous step to try and rebuild one's life in a more positive way, which was what Stefan and I decided to do. It was one life choice and a major philosophical influence on the record."

Anyway, for Placebo it's a very atypical song, very original, it could be played on mainstream radio from morning till night as a pop rock anthem, spread that positivity to all listeners and it wouldn't be bad at all.

Cast your mind back to the days
When I’d pretend I was okay
I had so very much to say
About my crazy living
Now that I’ve stared into the void
So many people I’ve annoyed
I have to find a middle way,
A better way of giving

So I haven’t given up
But all my choices, my good luck
Appeared to go and get me stuck
In an open prison
Now I am trying to break free
Be in a state of empathy
Find the true and inner me
Eradicate the schism

No-one can take it away from me
And no-one can tear it apart
Because a heart that hurts is a heart that works
A heart that hurts is a heart that works

A heart that hurts is a heart that works

No-one can take it away from me
And no-one can tear it apart
It may be elaborate fantasy
But it’s the perfect place to start

Because a heart that hurts is a heart that works
A heart that hurts is a heart that works

“The lyrics are very autobiographic, a complete confession from my point of view. On former records I used to invent characters, through which I could talk about my feelings and fears. I used these characters as selfprotection and catalysator to express myself. This time I didn't do this. The voice of the storyteller is my own. I think this record is much more honest and personal with these lyrics.“

The video for this song was directed by Heroes for Zeroes and is the 24th official video of Placebo's career.

It's an absolute contrast between lived anxiety and rediscovered hope, the duality between darkness and light seems to confirm the theme not only of this song, but of the entire album.
๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ’ฌ ๐’๐“๐„๐…๐€๐: “I mean that there seems to be quite a lot of light and dark themes with this record in terms of the album cover as the beginning. With the solar eclipse, you go to the light from the darkness to light it down. And what we’re trying to do in the video, is playing with the contrast between light and dark, so we’re kind of going from playing in the darkness together, and then we emerging and leaving to play into this quite illuminated backdrop.”

"I wrote it during my stay in India, like 'Song to say goodbye'. 'Meds' is about loosing yourself, not recognizing yourself. You feel lost, desperate, and you don't know what you think anymore, what you really feel. It's a very disturbing feeling, for me and for everyone, and I wanted to express it. I'm glad it's the opening song of the album, it's the 1st time a Placebo record opens with an acoustic chord."

"An addiction is a form of escape: you run away from yourself. It's a way of not facing life, to make things worse. Of course, you can have more or less control over it. It depends on whether the problem is due to your environment or whether it comes from your chromosomes. Sometimes it's hard to face things. To look at yourself with detachment. Living empirically, experimenting, is always easier than "following a path", but at the end of the day, you can't run away forever. At some point, you have to deal with all aspects of your life. Even the most painful ones."

I have a very deep personal connection to this song and will be very open in this post... because I know I'm not the only one whose life has been changed by Placebo music.

Maybe you know it too. A song you've known for years suddenly turns into a demon. It's in your ears all the time, day and night...

You can't get rid of the notes, the words. They come up in many everyday situations. And you don't want to hear it anymore because because it hurts...
It happened when MEDS was already 10 years old. I don't want to share very painful details, but I was going through a period that I wouldn't wish anyone in the world to experience.

The mental pain from the situation that totally wounded me was reflected psychosomatically in my physical body... and I cried out for help with every cell of my being and I've only encountered a lack of understanding from those closest to me.

I still remember the moment when this slow version first hit me right in the heart. I was listening to music before falling asleep and suddenly I was sitting on my bed crying.

The outline of the shadow lying beside me was insensitive to my emotions and I suddenly realized the depth of my problem. The fact that I try to maintain an image of my perfect happiness in front of the whole world and yet it was such a lie... It's an image of my addiction. Not on drugs, but on a dysfunctional marriage and family paradigm.

I think that even in psychology these individual phases are described in detail.
This unwanted and unwelcome anthem was ringing in my ears every day and I couldn't escape it.
If you fight something in anger and hatred, it keeps coming back, even stronger, to finally bring you down.

๐Ÿ’”Thoughts of suicide appeared... after all, I'm just a burden to everyone and myself.

But Meds for me will always be the song that on a subconscious level broke down the totally barricaded door to my wounded ego that wanted to stay hidden and feel sorry for itself until the very end.

Today, the slow version of Meds is a favorite lullaby for me. I love these Placebo acoustic songs and I will be happy if you enjoy this perfection with me tonight.

In these videos that I have selected for you, you can see how time went with this song.

๐ŸŒนThis song was used as the theme song for the famous American drama ⭐๐‚๐‘๐”๐„๐‹ ๐ˆ๐๐“๐„๐๐“๐ˆ๐Ž๐๐’⭐ with Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar. This film is based on the 1782 novel "๐ƒ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž๐ซ๐จ๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐‹๐ข๐š๐ข๐ฌ๐จ๐ง๐ฌ" ๐›๐ฒ ๐‚๐ก๐จ๐๐ž๐ซ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฌ ๐๐ž ๐‹๐š๐œ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฌ, which is set in the present day.

The plot concerns two high school step siblings from New York's high society, who are forever at war with each other and scheme and manipulate other people to achieve their goals, including sex and revenge. I think ๐„๐•๐„๐‘๐˜ ๐˜๐Ž๐” ๐„๐•๐„๐‘๐˜ ๐Œ๐„ is a great choice for the overall experience of this drama. The lyrics reflect the tone and plot of the film, especially Ryan's character Sebastian.
Following a bet with his evil sister, he decides to hurt a girl who is very vulnerable and naive, and as a result, everything comes to an inescapably tragic end.

It was 1999. MTV channel was playing on the TV. The first notes of the song came on, and the singer's voice rang inside my chest. That was my "Wooow PLACEBO!!!" first time. With my arms full - washed clothes in one hand and my almost one-year-old daughter in the other and a baby dummy in my mouth - I stood in front of the television and for several minutes I could not take my eyes off the ambiguous singing being. These memories are still as vivid and strong as if it were yesterday...

And to enjoy this evening even more - here you can see how time went with '๐„๐•๐„๐‘๐˜ ๐˜๐Ž๐” ๐„๐•๐„๐‘๐˜ ๐Œ๐„' live:
