“Pure Morning” – Placebo


Placebo’s “Pure Morning” is a nice updating of Jimi Hendrix’s “Are You Experienced?,” albeit with a 1970s British glam-rock feel. This was originally supposed to a be a B-side, but was released as an A-side instead. It’s Placebo’s best-known song in the US, but lead singer/songwriter Brian Molko allegedly hates it and rarely performs it these days.
