Placebo – Life’s What You Make It

In 2016 it was 20 years ago that Placebo released its debut album. Reason for the band to summarize that period with a career spanning retrospective: A Place For Us To Dream. This ‘best of’ double album contained all of their singles (with the exception, funny enough, of the most appropriately titled one of them all: Twenty Years). That ommition was compensated with the inclusion of a brand new track: Jesus’ Son.

This track was also part of an EP with six previously unreleased tracks, that Placebo put out in the same week as the ‘best of’. One of the other five songs on it was a cover of Talk Talk’s 1985 hit Life’s What You Make It (fun fact: this EP also contains not one, but two versions op Twenty Years). The band have a long history of recording cover versions as B-sides for their singles. Tracks like Running Up That Hill and Daddy Cool were subject to the Placebo cover treatment before.

Only now a video to their version of Life’s What You Make It has been released. It underpins the song’s message to great extent…
