So here I am, being a guest blogger on my friend’s blog. When it comes to blogging about Savage Garden, I am, of course, the best person to be chosen to do it. Savage Garden began in 1997, when I was in year 3. I didn’t know about them until I was in year 6. From that time onwards, I became a huge fan.
Well, when Savage Garden is mentioned, people will immediately relate them to their best-selling songs, ‘Truly Madly Deeply’ and/or ‘To the Moon and Back’. Little did they know that Savage Garden’s first album, ‘Savage Garden’, picked up 8 ARIAs in 1997 and also won a variety of awards internationally. Savage Garden is by far, the most successful Australian band thus far.
The album mostly encompasses the theme of love, made comparable to the natural environment and situations we see in everyday life. It explains how love can be so hard to resist and the passion in which we love will draw us to do things beyond our wildest dreams.
Unfortunately, the band broke up in 2001, with Darren Hayes starting his own solo music career. Darren’s songs still cover pretty much the same themes as Savage Garden, but with a much more modern musical genre.
I’ll probably review the album next time.
