This has been my favorite song for almost 15 years. It's one of the most powerful and honest songs ever made. It's been used in powerful moments of cinema and other media (like the ending of Cruel Intentions), and still gets consistent radio play. It was an instant classic and will always be one of the world's favorite songs, as it speaks right to your soul and knows exactly what you're going through.

Richard Ashcroft's lyrics and voice lift this track so far above many other Brit-pop "Anthems".

This is one of those songs from my Teen years that really stuck with me and it was great to discover it here DRM free.
Now, a review on this service. I am a huge apple fan and for that reason I'm extatic that they finally have some direct competition. They seem to thrive when they have serious competition and Amazon has done a great job at providing this (at least on the music side of things, don't get me started on their TV show and movie crap player). I of course own a mac and after downloading the utility and installing it (all went flawlessly), I purchased this song for $.89. It downloading very quickly and magically appeared in iTunes with album art and all. The only difference from iTunes is that the song is not restricted and it wasn't automatically in my purchased smart folder, but I just drug it into the folder and the problem was easily solved. Great job Amazon! Can't wait to see if Apple responds and how.

I know folk aren't looking for audiophile quality in pop. But either the whole track was recorded badly, or it really suffered when crunched down to an .mp3. It sounds vague, compressed, and thin, like a 2nd generation cassette copy, and it's bad enough to be bothersome when played on a good system. If all you plan for it is earbuds and an ipod, this won't be an issue. And no, it's not just the violins, which have the excuse of having been lifted from an older recording. It's the whole track, voices and all.

This is the first time I felt like I overspent on an .mp3. This song deserved better.

(I see someone else suggested "lo-fi" as a tag for this song. Wish I'd seen that before I bought.)

Most people could tell you where they were when this song came out. This type of music isn't made like this or anymore at all from what I hear. Bring it back. Melancholy Melodrama Forever!!

What to say about this song? Great 90's sound. Just listen to it. Most people find this song enjoyable after hearing it. Especially if you like all kinds of music.

The song is great, but software needs improved, because the DRM is ridiculous. Expired links as well as forcing you to donwload software to enjoy the song.
