SOULFUL SUNDAY – Here’s GARBAGE With That Beautiful Spooky Diamond… ‘BELOVED FREAK’

Gripping musings for the laziest day of the week…

18 March 2018

2018 Godlike NME genius SHIRLEY MANSON said at the time that BELOVED FREAK
was actually about the band, about GARBAGE“In a funny way, I think that’s a song to ourselves. As a band, we’ve always felt a little misunderstood, and we realize, even with this
new record, it’s sort of the same situation. We’re just oddballs, and we always will be. At this point in our lives, rather than feel like victims of being left out, we’re like, ‘F–k it!’ We’re renegades. We’re doing things on our own terms, and that’s fine.

Here’s that spooky diamond. One of Turn Up The Volume’s‘s fav Garbage pearls…

You’re not certain when you feel hurt
Get violent when you deal
With how the world drags you along
You’re not alone

Nothing good was ever free
No one gets it, no one sees
So here you stand, beloved freak
You’re not alone
You’re not alone
You’re not alone
Sometimes we get so tired and weak
We lose the sky beneath our feet
You’re not alone

Every comet throws an arc
And scars our vision ‘cross the dark
When we’re gone we will remain
You’re not alone

People lie and people steal
They misinterpret how you feel
And so we doubt and we conceal
You’re not alone

Don’t worry for me
Just think of yourself, think of yourself
Don’t worry for me
Just think of yourself, think of yourself

When we’re gone we will remain
When we’re gone we will remain
When we’re gone we will remain
When we’re gone we will remain

So here you stand, beloved freak
The world is at your feet
Here you stand, beloved freak
The world is at your feet

This little light of mine
I’m going to let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m going to let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m going to let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

And so you stand, beloved freak
The world is lying at your feet
There you stand, beloved freak
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine


From the band’s fifth album – released in 2012…
