[Welcome to a new series on the VSQ Blog called "Raging Strings." Each week, we'll highlight two pop and/or rock songs which include strings, and we'll ask you to vote for your favorite.] The Verve had their '90s hit with "Bittersweet Symphony" and one of many Smashing Pumpkins' hits during that era included "Tonight, Tonight."
