Celebrate Shirley Manson’s Birth with “Big Bright World”!


Well, technically, this is a belated birthday post. Shirley Manson, rock icon/lead singer of Garbage, turned 46 yesterday. That’s right. F-o-u-r-t-y–s-i-x. And like a fine wine, Manson has gotten better with age–and in every way. For proof, check her out in the video for “Big Bright World,” Garbage’s latest single from the much acclaimed Not Your Kind of People. It’s good and gothy. Lots of black and white footage, christian iconography and, expectedly, bursts of color.

The world is bigger and brighter for me many of us thanks to Shirley Manson so I thought it was only appropriate to do a bit of a retrospective. Here’s a smattering of my favorite Garbage videos, in no particular order:



“Sex Is Not The Enemy”

“Shut Your Mouth”

“You Look So Fine”
