Bittersweet Symphony

A classic, howl-against-the-elements loser's anthem, The Verve's sky-scraping "Bittersweet Symphony" managed to scale the upper rungs of charts everywhere during its initial releae in 1997, providing the Wigan space-rockers with their biggest hit since their formation in the late 1980s. It's matched by a suitably nihilistic, one-take video clip, which has frontman Richard Ashcroft deliberately, randomly knocking into people in the street and basically annoying the hell out of everyone he meets. Check it out here.
