"Say What You Want" is a song by Scottish pop group Texas and the first single to be taken from their fourth studio album White on Blonde.[1] It was remixed as "Say What You Want (All Day, Every Day)" featuring Method Man and RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan and re-released as a double A-side with "Insane" in 1998. Both versions featured on their 2000 album The Greatest Hits.

It is the band's biggest hit commercially to date, peaking at #3 on the UK Singles Chart, with the remixed version reaching #4. Two music videos were made to promote the single, the first video (which is the most common and has the original version) shows lead singer Sharleen Spiteri in a futuristic room and the second video has the remixed version and shows Spiteri in a park.
