Listening Post



I started the week with a really good cover and I'll end it the same way.

Here's Placebo, doing Kate Bush's passionate classic Running Up That Hill.

I really like the added menace that the band brings to this version of the song. I adore the original, but I hate the drum machine.

Geez are Placebo still relevant? The torn jeans make the lead guitar player look like a baboon ass.

BTW... Jennifer is going to have a boy. Winky winky. Hope yer doing groovy. //c

That song is so beautiful. The original's good, but lacks the haunting quality Placebo put in.

And I don't think Placebo care too much if they're relevant. They have a large and rabid fanbase, and occasionally speak up on things like gay rights. So who cares if they're relevant or not?

I love Kate Bush, and although I don't care for the Placebo version that much, it is interesting to hear. Thanks for sharing that.

Not a bad version of this song, they do it justice.
