Great covers of a wide range of classic songs
on 9 February 2010
Placebo have covered a wide range of songs here here, my favourites being covers of the Smiths "Bigmouth Strikes Again" and Kate Bush's "Running Up that Hill". I love the originals, and placebo have successfully recorded reimaginings which are sufficiently different (and placeboesque) to be interesting, but without sounding different for the sake of it.
