Placebo singles chronology

"Black-Eyed" is a song by English alternative rock band Placebo. It was released as a single from their third studio album, 2000's Black Market Music. The song tells the story of a character with a troubled childhood, bitterly affecting their development: "I'm forever black-eyed/A product of a broken home".

The official music video includes scenes from the 2001 German film Engel & Joe.[citation needed]

Reviews of the song ranged between it being called "clumsy posturing"[1] and applauded that as "things start getting mellower and darker [...] One of the nicest Black-Eyed, which sees the electronics politely let the guitars have a go between wailed choruses. In fact, alongside current single Slave To The Wage, this is possibly a favourite moment on the album."[2]
