I love it just as much as I love Pixies' version. Just as HedwigsInTheBox stated, Placebo didn't change anything special, so we could actually notice it's a lot different than the original. Sometimes I can't even tell whose version I'm listening to, 'cause they're so much alike. But, I love the song nevertheless.
I love Placebo, but there is absolutely no way that this cover is better than the Pixies original. It's just a basic cover. They didn't change anything really noticeable."
