From this episode…
The quintessential image of 90s English pop/rock, The Verve was created in the early 90s by Richard Ashcroft of The Chemical Brothers. Ashcroft composed the group and their sound into a melodic ensemble. When their one and only hit, Bittersweet Symphony, made the charts, it was the very heart of the band’s sound. Lead singer Ashcroft wrote the lyrics, which are a somber look at the ennui of everyday life: “You’re a slave to money, then you die.”
