“Pure Morning” is a single by alternative band Placebo, taken from their second album Without You I’m Nothing. The song was initially recorded as a B-side, but the band liked it so much that they decided to put it on the album; it is usually considered to be their second most played song, shadowed only by “Nancy Boy”. The most recognisable pattern to the song is the repetition of the line A friend in need’s a friend indeed at the beginning of each verse. The song has been featured often in British television advertisements. One of said adverts is for the Lexus IS200. This song was also included as track 12 on Big Shiny Tunes 3. The song was included on the soundtrack to the 2005 film Chumscrubber. Read on...
