The 11 Best Songs By Garbage

The hiatus is over.  If Garbage can come back after a seven year break…I can come back after a couple month layover for them.

The biggest challenge in creating a list for this band isn’t just listening to the songs and deciding what sounds the best…it’s more about sifting through their dozens of B-sides to decide which can lay side-by-side with their album tracks…when most of their B-sides are on par with the album tracks making it that much harder to distinguish between them all.

I have probably spent more time at music stores over the years looking for rare Garbage releases.  I once made a taxi in London stop outside an HMV in hopes to find an elusive double CD for their second album, Version 2.0…and they had it!  For the first three album I have all the CD singles, promo singles, and imports.  One might think they were my favorite band…but they’re not.  They just happened to be the most fun to collect.  I liked the music more because of the effort I went through to get it.  I didn’t take for granted the chase.  And sometimes…the chase is the best part.
