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."
