Australian pop duo Savage Garden’s ‘I Want You‘ was one of 10 incredibly cool songs on the second episode of the first season of Dawson’s Creek — Dawson’s Creek, Season 1, Episode 2, “Dance“.
The track was played as Pacey is talking to Miss Jacobs the teacher he has a crush on, as Cliff and Jen begin to dance and as Dawson and Joey arrive at the dance.
