The Verve “Bitter Sweet Symphony”

Certainly, I do not need to post up this music video of The Verve‘s 1997 song Bitter Sweet Symphony, I mean it’s already been viewed over 200,000,000 times!  But, it’s a great song, no matter the tortured copyright issues stemming from its sampling of previously recorded material by the Andrew Oldham Orchestra, which itself was derived (or inspired) from the Rolling Stone’s song The Last Time, which if you listen to, sounds absolutely nothing like Bitter Sweet Symphony and has totally different lyrics.  I had never seen the music video featuring vocalist & song writer Richard Ashcroft, and it is really great!
