You know I think it's one song I sort of overlooked. I've always liked it, but for whatever reason it got overshadowed by all the other great songs (ranks as #8 for me on that album, ahead of OHWIR, SG and DNT in that order). I don't think I've actually read all the lyrics until just now - they're actually quite good and a nice, cohesive work.
Half an hour. One bag. Plus the guns. I'll make pancakes. Sarah Connor
They stopped playing the song in February 1999. A shame because the song is mazing! I love hearing different live versions when Shirley messes around with the pacing, arrangement and key while singing the outro.

It used to be one of my favorite G songs, and I still really do enjoy it. I think it's really catchy, dark, melodic, beautiful, but still rough at the same time. There's a lot going on in that song that people don't always catch. There is a lot of layering, weird notes, and melodies that are floating around in this song that you don't always notice on the first listen. The chorus is fucking groovy and flows so well throughout the whole song; even when the song gets all loud and crazy at the end.
With that being said, I wish they still played this song live.
If your friends become zombies, shoot them. If your friends become hipsters, shoot them. This is all you need to know in life.
When they did it live, Shirley always brought out the guitar, which was cool. Not that she seemed to do much with it other than look hot.
In my mind I always thought it would have made a cool video. Similar to "Vow" with the boys playing, but maybe with Shirley acting out the more literal aspect of the lyrics pulling out a shoebox from under her bed or sort of vamping in a something similar to a small room.

akways loved this song - think it woulda sounded awesome on the BLM tour - revamped like they did with Queer. Love the lyrics, the melodies, love it when it gets loud at the end!!
Incidentally with regards what reneeccski said I think my ordering of fav tracks from the debut goes: 1.Supervixen 2.Vow 3.Only Happy.... 4.Queer 5. Milk 6. Stupid Girl 7. Fix Me Now 8. My Lover's Box 9. As Heaven Is Wide 10. Not My Idea 11. A Stroke of Luck 12. Dog New Tricks
Should be noted I listen to the first 10 tracks pretty heavily the last 2 not so much and the last 2 are not on my current top 40 playlist on my Mp3player.

My Lover's Box is my favourite track off of the self-titled album and my 5th favourite Garbage song overall! I freaking love the build-up of white noise at the end of the track and Shirley is such a badass when she performs this one live! The guitar riffs throughout the song are some of the most rocking riffs Garbage has ever written and the whole thing is total headbang material.
Let's burst all the bubbles that brainwash the masses~

Dance Away: And, Elvis Costello's wife is Diana Krall. Oh god, do I love the music of Diana Krall! And, I know it's an aspiration of Shirley to do the kind of music that Krall is doing. Shirley's mother was a 'big band' music singer (sample "Glenn Miller" big band)

orthodoxparadox36: I think that album actually saved, well, a few of the most important things in my life. I am eternally grateful for the way you all chose to dedicate your collective creative genius; something which makes it that much more special, not to mention, genuine!
