{06} Carol’s 50 Favorite Music Videos - The Verve, Bitter Sweet Symphony (1998)

The music video focuses on Ashcroft lip-synching the song while walking down a busy London’s pavement, refusing to change his stride or direction throughout  what is going on around him. He repeatedly bumps into passers-by, narrowly avoids being hit by a car, and jumps on top of the bonnet of another vehicle stopped in his path (the driver gets out of her car and proceeds to pursue and shout at him, while he continues unflinchingly). At the end of the video, the rest of The Verve join Ashcroft, and the final shot sees them walking down the street into the distance.
