"I Want You" is a song by Australian pop duo Savage Garden. It was originally released in Australia in May 1996[1] as the lead single from their eponymous debut album, Savage Garden. The single hit number one in Canada, and peaked on #4 on the US Billboard Hot 100[2] and in Australia.[3] The single also peaked at #11 on the UK Singles Chart.[4]

In November 1998, the single was re released in the United Kingdom, following the success of "Truly Madly Deeply" and "To the Moon and Back". This release peaked at #12. The song is also used as the ending theme of the anime adaptation of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, during the Diamond Is Unbreakable arc.

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 black hair. The international version was featured on the band's compilation Truly Madly Completely: The Best of Savage Garden (2005), while the Australian version was not available until the release of the compilation The Singles (2015).
