I loved this lovely love killer even before I could understand what she’s singing about. It’s interesting how a song can change in one’s mind over the course of 20 years. I was 15 when I heard this song the first time. 20 years later, I love it just as much, but not the same.
Even since back in 1998, Garbage showed that they’re not afraid to mix all sorts of spicy sounds into their rock orchestration. Paired with Shirley Manson, one of the most memorable female vocalist I can think of, it’s a recipe for success.
This song is special.
“I’m living without you
But I know all about you
I have run you down into the ground
Spread disease about you over town
I used to adore you
I couldn’t control you
There was nothing that I wouldn’t do
To keep myself around and close to you
Do you have an opinion?
A mind of your own?
I thought you were special
I thought you should know
But I’ve run out of patience
I couldn’t care less”
