I’m not ALL about classical… January 23rd, 2017

… though admittedly, Bittersweet Symphony by the Verve (released 20 years ago) has strong classical elements, including the title (obviously) and those amazing strings. Which is probably why I like it so much. I LOVE this song! The lyrics are, admittedly, depressing, but the melody is hypnotic. I was amazed to learn that it was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Apparently they wrote quite a few songs for other bands.

So here it is again, all “classified.” I like this version too, but I kind of miss Richard Ashcroft’s agonized vocals.
