"I Want You" is a song by Australian pop group Savage Garden. It was originally released in Australia in June 1996 as the lead single from their eponymous debut album, Savage Garden. The single hit number one in Canada, and peaked at number 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and in Australia. The single also peaked at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. In November 1998, the single was re-released in the UK, following the success of "Truly Madly Deeply" and "To the Moon and Back". This release peaked at number 12.

Music video[edit]

Two music videos were released for the song; a low-budget version in Australia and a second, higher-budget version for America and international markets. The first video, released in 1996, showed the band performing in a room full of disco lights and Darren Hayes singing on the back of a moving vehicle. The second video, released in 1997, features the band in a stylised futuristic warehouse and recording studio. Both videos present Darren Hayes with long hair.
