The Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony (1997)

Arguably one of the greatest hits of the 90s and also making appearances in many greatest ever tracks charts, this anthem is memorable not only for the violin sample, but also for the music video where we see front man Richard Ashcroft clad in a leather jacket walking down a busy London street. Refusing to step aside, he bumps everybody who gets in his way.

Great clip and video. Parlophone has disabled embedding their videos on YouTube so I had to grab the video from another source.

  2. Man I was sick of this song back in the day.
    For awhile there, you couldn't go anywhere without hearing it. Good song, but overplayed.
