Bittersweet Symphony

Any song that survives torrentiality in the music world and have the masses claim it to be an infinite classic deserves a place in the history of music-making to be what it should rightfully be - an infinite classic. The Verve got this song out quite a number of years ago. Not exactly Sinatra, Beatles or Morrison material, but it cuts a deep chasm of cult followers that has managed to place this song to be a true modern Brit-pop classic. Possibly the best ever. Way better than what Oasis, Suede, Blur or the likes could have ever offered during that era, for any of their songs. At least that's what I think anyway.

Bittersweet Symphony.

yup, i've always liked it. the droning orchestral repetitiveness of the tune sticks in my head. simple video concept works well, too.

Yeah agree, he just runs into people and remains totally oblivious to their reactions.
