"Protège-Moi" is a single by the band Placebo, which was released in France only in 2003. The song is a French language version of "Protect Me from What I Want" from their fourth album, Sleeping with Ghosts. The chorus remains in English, although the French title is sung in the background. The song can also be found as an additional track on the two disc edition of Placebo's fourth album, Sleeping with Ghosts. It was also released in 2004, on Placebo's 'greatest hits' album Once More with Feeling: Singles 1996–2004. It has been translated to French by Virginie Despentes.[1]
