Friday Flashback: The Verve “Bitter Sweet Symphony” Video

The Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony” is an iconic video from the height of the Britpop movement. This song was HUGE in 1997, and can even be heard on US radio stations to this day. I love Richard Ashcroft’s attitude in this video, as he strolls down the street with no regard for passersby. It’s such a memorable but simple video, proving that sometimes good art direction and style have just as much impact as flashy special effects.
