Savage Garden- Affirmation: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Savage Garden- Affirmation
United States- Savage Garden had two top 10 hits from their self-titled debut album. Their second album was “Affirmation” and had three singles in the country which charted. Check what song/s which went to top 10 from Affirmation:
I Knew I Loved You- #1
Unlike the duo’s debut album, Savage Garden only scored one top 10 hit from “Affirmation” which was “I Knew I Love You”. However, that song went to number 1, their second and last of their entire career. “The Animal Song” which was a soundtrack single and included in “Affirmation” reached number 19, while “Crash and Burn” peaked at number 24.

United Kingdom- Savage Garden achieved success from their second album “Affirmation” in United Kingdom too. They had a total of six songs released from the album, and all those songs charted. Not all of those singles went to top 10, so check what song/s did so:
I Knew I Love You- #10
Affirmation-#8
Only two singles from their six reached the top 10. The highest peak was “Affirmation” (the single) sitting at number 8. “I Knew I Love You” which was the biggest hit from them elsewhere only peaked at the bottom 10. Their other singles went to top 20 such as “Crash and Burn” which reached number 14, “The Animal Song” and “Hold Me” at number 16. “The Best Thing” was the lowest charter when it peaked at number 35.

The most successful single from “Affirmation” has been “I Knew I Love You” as it reached number 1 in the US and top 10 in UK. The beautiful love song is what I am sharing now. Go down and enjoy the song.

I Knew I Love You (Chorus)
I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life
