The Verve were an English rock band formed in Wigan in 1990 by lead vocalist Richard Ashcroft, guitarist Nick McCabe, bass guitarist Simon Jones and drummer Peter Salisbury. Guitarist and keyboard player Simon Tong later became a member. Beginning with a psychedelic sound with their debut LP A Storm in Heaven, by the mid-1990s the band had released several EPs and three albums. The band's commercial breakthrough was the 1997 album Urban Hymns, one of the best-selling albums in UK Chart history. The album features the hit singles "Bitter Sweet Symphony", "The Drugs Don't Work" and "Lucky Man"
Artist: The Verve Album: A Northen Soul Song: History Lyrics: Richard Ashcroft Chorded by: Ross Howard (Rosshr. nz) From work by: Michael A. Atienza, Kevin Dutcher. I have had trouble finding a chording of History to my satisfaction. All of the versions that I have come across have been flawed in many ways. But I found a reasonable one on a Verve site and have used this as my base for this one. I must then thank Atienza and Dutcher for theirs was the base for this work here.
Like many Verve songs, "History" uses a haunting string section, in this case arranged by Wil Malone and performed by The London Symphony Orchestra. This song took an ironic turn when a few months after the album's release, the band broke up. The split didn't last long though: Ashcroft started working on a solo album, then enlisted the band to perform on it, thus making it a Verve record. That album was Urban Hymns, released in 1997. Two years later, they split up again. Reaching in the UK, "History" marked the band's highest chart placing to that point,.
I wander lonely streets Behind where the old Thames does flow And in every face I meet Reminds me of what I have run from. In every man, in every hand In every kiss, you understand That living is for other men I hope you do understand. I've got to tell you my tale Of how I loved and how I failed I hope you understand These feelings should not be in the man. In every child, in every eye In every sky, above my head I hope that I know So come with me in bed Because it's you and me, we're history There ain't nothing left to say When.
