|Jawbox singles chronology|
"Savory" was the first single released by Jawbox from their 1994 major label debut, For Your Own Special Sweetheart, released as Savory + 3. The song is a description of the female body, according to Allmusic, but in a very cryptic form. The three other songs from the single were later included as bonus tracks for the 2009 reissue of For Your Own Special Sweetheart.
The music video was released in early 1994 and gained some MTV airplay, particularly on programs like 120 Minutes, but the song never charted. The video depicts Jawbox performing at a little girl's birthday party, where the birthday girl receives an assortment of unusual gifts, including weapons and dentures. The video shows the band dressed in formal suits, a change from their old video for "Cutoff". It was reviewed on Beavis and Butt-head in a positive form, but the duo talked about how the video reminded them of Stewart's birthday party.
The song was covered as a collaborative effort between members of the band Far and Chino Moreno of the Deftones. The song was released in 1997 on Far's EP Soon. It was re-released on the Deftones' 2005 release B-Sides & Rarities.
