‘Affirmation’ – Savage Garden

Savage Garden is one of my all-time favourite bands. I was devastated when they broke up in 2001. Darren Hayes is just not that awesome without Daniel Jones (still love his songs though).

This song was actually produce by Walter Afanasieff (multiple Grammy award-winning record produced and songwriter who has also produced songs for Ricky Martin, Mariah Carey, and Celine Dion!!). No wonder it was such a hit!

Just now I had my iPod on shuffle, and ‘Affirmation’ started playing. This is the THIRD time today that I have heard that song. One when listening to the morning radio station; another on the way home from uni on the afternoon radio; and now. As the saying goes:

“Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it’s enemy action.” – [Goldfinger]

I have listened to this song numerous times since its first release back in 1999, but never had I actually concentrated on the lyrics and appreciated its meaning.

Now that I have, I think it’s all that more brilliant…


Khalil Fong 方大同

American-born Hong Kong-based soul Mandopop singer/songwriter.

Currently #1 on my music playlist. There’s just something about his voice – unique, soothing, very likeable.

Check out the links below of 2 of my favourite songs by him (so far). Yes, they’re english, but he covers Mandarin songs also.
