'Cos its a bitter sweer simphony this life'...cool track and one of the best song of the 90's
***

An absolute classic track. Memorable. UK#2 and Ireland#3. US#12.

Good one. Brings back some memories.
*****
Great song, another unforgettable classic. However, depending on the situation, I can sometimes find this annoying and I would prefer to listen to another song.
******
Absolutely Timeless
******
absolutely classic song! so great
****
i do like this song, but hate the ARROGANCE of the video
******
The ARROGANCE is what makes the video such a classic. So funny, especially when he knocks the lady over. It's her fault for looking in her bag as she meanders along.

And the song is brilliant. Even though I like The Drugs Don't Work a touch better, this is still amazing.
****
Pretty cool '90s classic.
******
One of the best songs from the 90's. In fact, one of the best songs ever. It has the perfect combination of music, lyrics and charm. Perfect.
******
Fantastic song and clip! Both very simple.
******
One Of My Favourite Songs Ever!
***
Never liked this, which is suprising because I'm a sucker for a string-infused track. I find it ridiculously overrated.

With that being said, a 2 seems too low for it, because there are worse songs than this, so promoted to a 3.

dont care much for this at all - very overrated imo.

One of my favourite songs ever! Great.
****
This charted at a time I was distracted by other songs. I could see a potential strong following for this, but it has had little bearing on any personal experiences for me. However, that clip is certainly memorable and kind of captivating, to see whether he can maintain that straight line.
****
Good song, which I never got around to reviewing after hearing it so many times. Hilarious music video, especially the part where he knocks that woman over.

#5 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of Past 20 Years
******
6 stars
******
This really is one of the best songs ever. Easy 6*
***
One of the overrated singles ever. Drugs Don't Work is much better.
******
Timeless classic!
****
Pretty good but not one that I want to hear often.
******
Masterpiece.
