Bosco

Album: Loud Like Love (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • The closing track of Loud Like Love, "Bosco" finds Brian Moloko expressing regret for messing up a relationship.

    I ask you for another second chance, but then I drink it all away
    And I get bellicose when you react, full of frustration and dismay


    Moloko said: "That's kind of what I consider perhaps to be the most vulnerable moment of my career, in terms of approaching a subject that's kind of… a relationship that's kind of torn apart by addiction."
  • Bassist/guitarist Stefan Olsdal told Artist Direct this is the song he's written that he's most proud of. He explained:

    "It's the most timeless and emotive Placebo have been. I remember presenting Brian with the recorded piano and he came up with the some gut wrenchingly beautiful lyrics."
  • Placebo have only played this live once, during their special MTV Unplugged show. Olsdal explained this is because, "we feel it needs an orchestra to do it justice."
