The 11 Best Garbage Songs


Every once in awhile, the TV industry does something smart. This season, instead of canceling the failing shows and shoving them up on a shelf somewhere, they took the remaining episodes and aired them at the very end of the TV season...giving fans one last chance to enjoy the show that they were merely tempted with. Both "Studio 60" and "Standoff," two shows that were better than their ratings gave them credit for, were among the shows that were given new life early this summer. Many times, TV producers put good shows in terrible time slots and can't understand why they didn't take off. Jericho aired opposite of American Idol. Of course it's numbers were down. Even though the American Idol fad is still beyond me. Don't people realize it's just a remake of Star Steach? What's next...a Solid Gold remake?

The makers of TV shows need to do a better job of picking shows the audience wants to see. Why not let the summer audiences watch the failed pilots...if one has a positive reaction...then maybe it deserves a 2nd life....or would that be too smart of a thing to do.

Here are the 11 Best Garbage Songs (files were taken from their epic British radio performance in 2002)

1. Only Happy When It Rains (Garbage)
2. I Think I'm Paranoid (Version 2.0)
3. The Trick Is To Keep Breathing (Version 2.0)
4. Vow (Garbage)
5. Medication (Version 2.0)
6. Soldier Through This (B-Side)
7. Bleed Like Me (Bleed Like Me)
8. Cup of Coffee (Beautiful Garbage)
9. Queer (Garbage)
10. Androgyny (Beautiful Garbage)
11. Supervixen (Garbage)

Other live songs from London....

- Tempation Waits
- Special
- Shut Your Mouth

Buy Garbage's new greatest hits package...Absolute Garbage with the bonus remix disc...it's fantastic. No really, the remixes are quite fantastic.
