*****
Heerlijk opzwepend uptempo-nummer.
Voor de rest is alles over dit nummer al gezegd: catchy refrein, achtergrondkoortje dat 'bababababa' zingt....
Placebo-wijn van een goed jaar!
*****
I think this was the first song of theirs pre-Meds that I became familiar with. Very catchy with the "Ba da bum bum ba da da dum" hook in the verses, and then what seems like one chorus piled onto another. This shouldn't work, but it does and it's very satisfying. 4.5

OK but not one of my favourites from them. Not bad though.
****
Cool track.
*****
I really like this one. In my top five Placebo tracks.

Not bad.
