It’s been years since the last time I’ve listened to PLACEBO. I’ve started listening to them again since last week.
My encounter with Placebo’s music was actually embarrassing, the same as the reason why I stopped listening to them.
Placebo was a favorite band of my crush on college era. He idolized Brian Molko so much, that he somehow kind of looking likes the vocalist, and even adds “Molko” on his name on an “old” social media platform.
Because of that reason, I come listening to Placebo hehehe I even bought three of their cassette albums… “Without You I’m Nothing”, “Sleeping with Ghosts”, and “Once More With Feeling – The Singles”. Surprisingly, I’ve become to like Placebo’s music and Brian Molko’s unique voice. But regrettably, I don’t know where these cassettes are now… Maybe, my brother has sold it away…
My feeling for the crush didn’t continued on, so eventually I also stopped listening to Placebo hehehe Since it brought sweet, but mostly embarrassing memories about me and the crush.
Then, I was listening to a song from AFI (A Fire Inside), “Prelude 12/21”, when Placebo’s music crossed my mind again. Fortunately, Placebo was also the band that influenced AFI. No wonder I come to remember about them.
Over the years I didn't listened to Placebo, they still has the same music feeling, Brian Molko still has the same unique voice, but his appearance did changed a lot. I always thought that I would remember the face of my crush, when I listen to Brian Molko's singing voice. But...I don't. I couldn't remember his face really well, can't imagine how he would be looking now, even I forget his full name...
Well then, my feelings for the crush may end, but my liking to Placebo was still around. It’s time for me to catch up with them now. ^^
