7. The Drugs Don’t Work – The Verve
I have a sneaking suspicion this song actually was on the playlist and it’s no surprise. The Verve are brilliant at re-creating small moments and making the personal seem epic (which is basically the story to every post-party, star-gazing session ever). Bittersweet Symphony would make people too weepy (listen and don’t cry, I dare you) so take The Drugs Don’t Work. It’s a nice balance of sentimentality and grit.
