Had to be done
I got into SG back in about, ooh... 1999? I'm not sure of the exact date. My best friend at the time was obsessed with the band, and was a member of the fanclub. I was delivered fanclub stuff in the mail and later on discovered that she'd put my name down on their mailing list or whatnot, LOL!
She was always "in love" with Daniel, while I liked Darren We even went to their concert in... I think it was 2000 or something. Brilliant stuff, with Darren in his Elvis outfit humping the stage
Buuuut anyway. Darren's releasing a new song and I loooove it! But it's not available to buy til the end of October, I believe, which is shite... But I'll be getting it when it's out

oh gooooooood *groans in ectasy* My beloved Savage Garden. You think i'm obsessed with TLOG/Steve...it is NOTHING compared to the love i had (and still do) for Mr Darren Stanley Hayes and the wonderful and brilliant and just MY HEART that was Savage Garden.
The immediate love i had for Darren when seeing TTMAB video clip for the first time (Jan 4th 1997) it was at my best friends 15th birthday, we were watching video hits and WHAM on came this song that just absolutely floored me. I still get goosebumps listening to it today. Luckily my best friends all loved Savage Garden as well, and we had many MANYMANYMANY conversations, watched video clips taped ANYTHING they were on collected magazine articles. I was a member of the fan club for 1997/98/99/00 and still have all the magazines and stuff that came with it. I even got a letter posted in Smash Hits in 1997 about my absolute love for Darren (i wrote a poem...LOL)
Although Darren can annoy me sometimes, and his stupid ambiguidy with his sexuality (which i dont care if he's straight bi gay, green purple whatever) annoys me because it makes it bigger then it is you know, but besides those small annoyances, he still is one of the most talented, sweetest, heartfelt gorgeous men in this world and im am grateful he is still around.
I remember the time in 1997 (April 30th) at the first SG concert he was singing TMD and he looked through the crowd and looked straight at me. I literally felt faint (the one and only time! hahaha) and sort of fell onto my friend next to me which cause him to frown worriedly then smile this most gorgeous smile when i stood back up and grinned at him and gave him the thumbs up (oh the shame!)
I remember when he first said my name, sort of breeeathed it out as he signed my tour program. He then looked up and smiled and i just thought, how can someone just be so beautiful.
I remember when he said i smelt nice, and i said no you smell nice and he said we must of rubbed off on each other. and then winked. It took all my power to not jump on him.
I remember him putting his arm around me for a photo and thinking his hands are tangled in my hair and how soft his cheek felt against mine. And not for the millionth time wish i could just attach myself to him forever.
I remember when i found he was married and in my 14 yr old state cried myself to sleep for 3 nights. But then i remember when he said he was getting divorced and i actually took a day off school because i was so sad because i loved Colby.
And i remember the day the "break up" became official after we speculated for moooooonths on the internet and chatting between my friends. My mum acutally heard it on the radio at lunch and called me panicing at home to tell me (i think she was worried i would top myself or something! LOL) I didnt hear it and literally spent the next week in tears, even my mum cried (though probably more because i was crying haha) It was just such a sad shock for me. I thought they'd be like the beatles of the stones, they had so much talent and just i wanted them to continue for ever.
But yes, im glad Darren is still around making beautiful music, Daniel is happy producing, and i have so many gorgeous memories to look back on
God that was an essay! Sorry!
one moment in time defines a friendship of a lifetime...
