Bitter Sweet Symphony


Lançada em 1997, é a mais conhecida canção da banda britânica The Verve. A melodia "estourou" nas rádios brasileiras no ano de 1998 e também fez parte da trilha sonora do filme Segundas Intenções, de 1999, o que fez aumentar sua fama. É usado na música um sample da versão da Andrew Oldham Orchestra para a música dos Rolling Stones, The Last time. Razão pela qual foram processados e perderam, mas não nos cabe tratar disso. Adoro essa música! E o clipe também! Veja:


A letra:
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
You're a slave to money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the veins meet yeah,

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

Well I never pray
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no
I can't change
I can't change

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
Try to find some money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the things meet yeah

You know I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

I can't change my mold
no, no, no, no, no,
I can't change
Can't change my body,
no, no, no

It justs sex and violence melody and silence
It justs sex and violence melody and silence
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
It justs sex and violence melody and silence
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
Been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Have you ever been down?
Have you ever been down?
Have you ever been down?

Realmente tem muita gente que gosta, sabe cantar mas não conhece a banda.
Porém tem muito mais para falar dela!

Ela simplesmente é o exemplo máximo do cenário Britpop/Britrock que foi um dos movimentos musicais mais expressivos da década de 90. O single superou as músicas de Blur e Oasis inclusive.
