You ever try doing this in real life?

Original title: Hipster Epiphany
It's a really pretty song until that jackass starts singing.
Bonus star for the extras they scraped together at the last minute. SHOCKINGLY, the original plan to have Richard Ashcroft walk through London bumping into total strangers didn't work out as well as they thought, and so they had to shut the street down and hire some extras on the last day of shooting. They're actually pretty good.
"The song borrowed a reversed looped sample of a symphonic recording of the Rolling Stones song "The Last Time". ABKCO Records, which controls the Rolling Stones' back catalogue, and which had warned The Verve against using the Rolling Stones sample in "Bitter Sweet Symphony," successfully sued The Verve for 100% of the royalties for the song.
Further, as a result of the lawsuit, Rolling Stones members Keith Richards and Mick Jagger were given songwriting credits and full publishing rights to the song, which later appeared in a Nike commercial against The Verve's will.
After the song was used in the movie Cruel Intentions, The Verve filed a moral rights (copyright) suit to ensure the song was not distributed commercially any more. The Verve is said to have not made a penny from the song.
I hate art commerse. And the current-day Rolling Stones.
Everything that was good about the stones back then is bad about the stones now.
A few seconds of a string section looping over and over for 4.5 minutes is not a symphony.
Your YTMND has shown me the true way.
I apologize for not being more honest.
Lettin' the star do the talkin'.
No kidding. I played those few seconds over and over on my viola with a shitty local band in high school. Total suckitude.
You know, if you just went by 90s Music Week here, you'd be forgiven for thinking 90s music was unremittingly awful.

I don't care. Yay for nostalgia.
