It's a song to say goodbye

No, not from me; at least, not yet. I have found some of my irritation and shall post presently, I think.

However, one of your humble Devil's guilty pleasures is Placebo and I recently bought their latest album, Meds. Generally, it's not bad (I've only listened to it once) but the last song is great. In fact, it was the video for it that persuaded me to buy the album: I find this film, for some reason, incredibly moving. So, here it is: A Song To Say Goodbye...



You may not like Brian Molko's voice but you have to admit that that video has something...

Jeepers, that post-heading frightened me. You knew it would, too. Bastard.

"I find this film, for some reason, incredibly moving" Tut tut Devil - only a few posts ago, it was all about how you dont empathise! You're ruining your reputation.

(This new found empathy and lack of bile has nothing to do with Trixy does it?)

Yes, this is a very moving video.

If you notice the boy had a bruise under his eye at 2:55, just before his father is committed, which may be the trigger for that event. I suspect it is about the father's breakdown at the death of his wife/the boy's mother, for she is not there.

Above all, boys need a father.

Class video and song. Thanks for inflicting.

Come on DK, let's have a rant about this unicef report on child poverty. Goodness, don't you know that every child in Britain can't afford an Ipod?

Off topic, thin-skinned Brownite MP tries to raise blogging standards.

Seen this a few times and then the penny dropped.

Boy is a man who's father suffers from senile dementia. To the man, he is always the boy to his father and to care for him feels just as awkward and out of place.
