  1. I don't actually play anything, but the other guys haven't noticed.

    I listened, but it really isn't my kind of music.

    They do. And 66% of the focus group reacted the same as when they heard the original.

    Is the opener Baron Munchausen?

    I don't get the joke, and I'm a fan.

    Once I joined, I realized the music isn't half as bad as it sounds.

    Was this just a Canadian hit or did this break in the USA too? I know they had more success back home in Britain but I don't know how much.

    This is a great song, and enjoyed quite a bit of popularity in the states. I dig a lot of Placebo stuff, though they've kind of fallen off my radar since the 00's. Saw them in LA once or twice. I file them under a more modern Cure in terms of mood and ability. And I'm totally missing the joke here, btw

    Mktrat Seriously, are we not doing phrasing anymore?

    Some of us cynical old farts are merely taking the word Placebo at face value...
  16. Look up the phrase, "placebo effect."

    In comparison to other bands in that genre, Placebo is pretty much along the same lines.
