Lucky Man (4:53)

Cover of Urban Hymns

From Urban Hymns and 34 other releases

“Lucky Man” is a song by the band The Verve and is featured on their third album, Urban Hymns. It was released 24 November 1997 as the third single from the album, charting at #7 in the UK Singles Chart. The song was also the band’s second, and so far last Top 20 hit in the USA.

The track featured prominently in the prom scene at the final climax of the 2004 film The Girl Next Door. It was also recently featured in the movie Marley & Me (2008).

Anastacia “borrowed” the melody and hook of this song for her hit Cowboys & Kisses in 2001, but Richard Ashcroft received no credit for it.

U2 frontman Bono recognized “Lucky Man” as one of six songs that he wished he had written in the last 20 years of music.
