Throwback Thursday!

Tomorrow marks 20 years since the release of The Verve’s Bitter Sweet Symphony, but the song feels just as relevant today.

Included in the band’s Urban Hymns album, the track samples the main theme of The Rolling Stones’ The Last Time. Following a legal controversy between the two bands upon its release, Verve eventually lost all composing credits to the song. Ironically, it is their biggest hit to date.

Bitter Sweet Symphony is also included in the soundtrack of one of my favourite ‘90s films, Cruel Intentions, adding an extra dose of drama and relief in that last defining scene.

“No change, I can’t change, I can’t change, I can’t change
But I’m here in my mold, I am here in my mold”
