Garbage – Special

Special” is an alternative rock song written, performed and produced by Garbage, and was the third international single to be released from the band’s platinum second album Version 2.0. “Special” gained much attention in the music press upon the 1998 release of Version 2.0, as it contained a vocal interpolation of a lyric taken from “Talk of The Town” by The Pretenders. A moderate hit in the United Kingdom and Australia in October 1998, “Special” became a sleeper hit in the United States the following year. The song’s success was marked by becoming nominated in the Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group categories at the 2000 Grammy Awards, and winning a Wisconsin Area Music Industry award for Song of the Year and a Citation of Achievement from the BMI Pop Awards. The acclaimed sci-fi inspired music video for “Special” also received multiple nominations from music industry award panels; winning a D&AD Award, a MTV Video Music Award, and a VH1 Visionary Video award. In 2007, “Special” was remastered and included on Garbage’s greatest hits album Absolute Garbage. Wikipedia®.

Garbage – Special Lyrics:
I-I-I-I’m living without you
I-I-I-I know all about you
I have run you down into the ground
Spread disease about you over town

I-I-I-I used to adore you
I-I-I-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

I-I-I-I
I-I-I-I

Do you have an opinion?
A mind of your own?
I thought you were special
I thought you should know

I-I-I-I used to amuse you
I-I-I-I knew that I’d lose you
Now you’re here and begging for a chance
But there’s no way in hell I’d take you back

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’ve run out of comments
I’m tired of the violence
I couldn’t care less

I’m looking for a new
I’m looking for a new
I’m looking for a new
I’m looking for a new

We were the talk of the town.
We were the talk of the town.
We were the talk of the town.
We were the talk of the town.

I thought you were special.
I thought you were special.
I thought you were special.
I thought you were special.
Garbage Special Garbage   Special
