Woodridge, Australia (1996 – 2001)

From Woodridge, Australia to worldwide success, Darren Hayes and Daniel Jones were responsible for some of the most widely-known pop songs of the late ’90s and early ’00s. Appropriately enough, given their Anne Rice-inspired name, Savage Garden veered between lush ballads (Truly Madly Deeply, I Knew I Loved You) and up-tempo dance numbers (I Want You, The Animal Song) with a deftness that put many of their contemporaries in the shade.

In July of 1996, under Roadshow Music, the duo released their debut single I Want You. The single was a hit in Australia and became the year’s highest-selling by an Australian artist. The success of the single garnered much interest from many U.S. record labels and in September, Columbia Records won the bidding war to sign the band. In November a second single, To the Moon and Back, was released and was another chart hit—reaching No. 1 in January of the following year.

“‎I Want You” was released in the United States in February 1997, where it peaked at No. 4 and quickly achieved gold status. Truly Madly Deeply, the band’s third Australian single, was released in March and reached No. 1 just before “I Want You” was released across Europe in April. The duo’s debut album, Savage Garden, entered the Australian charts at No. 1 in March and remained at that peak for 17 weeks—it was released around the world two weeks later. At the end of May, “To The Moon And Back” became the most played song on U.S. radio.

    достать их кассету в свое время было нереально. Обожаю, ядреная ностальгия.

    Everything by Savage Garden is amazing; they're a band of their time and will forever be a legend. No other band compares or even comes to close being anything like them. I know those are just opinions but in my heart, they are facts.
