Twenty Years

"Twenty Years" is a song recorded by alternative rock band Placebo, and included on their 2004 best-of compilation release, Once More with Feeling. It was the only entirely new song to be released as a single (although Prot├Ęge-Moi, a French-language re-recording of an earlier song, was released in France). It was available with a video, radio play, and CD single distribution.

Furthermore, the song was one of two songs (with The Bitter End), performed by Placebo at the Paris leg of the international Live 8 benefit concert in 2005.

In the UK, it peaked at number 18 in the UK Singles Chart. In Australia, the song was ranked #95 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of 2004.

When played live, the song often has an extra middle eight section added on.

Famous quotes related to twenty years:

    Sometimes it just takes stronger eyeglasses to cure those who are in love—and someone with the ability to imagine a face or a figure twenty years older might perhaps pass through life quite undisturbed.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    ... for twenty years ... to speak of culture has meant that one did not have it. The only people who have talked about it have been the people who have thought you could get it at Chautauquas.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    Twenty years a child; twenty years running wild; twenty years a mature man—and after that, praying.
    Irish proverb.

    So here I am, in the middle way, having had twenty years
    Twenty years largely wasted, the years of l’entre deux guerres—
    Trying to learn to use words, and every attempt
    Is a wholly new start, and a different kind of failure....
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
