"All in the Mind" is a song by English rock band The Verve and was released as the band's first single in the United Kingdom on 9 March 1992 (see 1992 in British music). "All in the Mind" and its B-sides "One Way to Go" and "A Man Called Sun" were recorded at Blue Bell Hill Studios in Kent, England in November 1991 with producer Paul Schroeder.[1]

Inspiration for the song and chart performance[edit]

On its release, the song immediately topped the independent charts, as did their following two singles, "She's a Superstar" and "Gravity Grave". The song, however, made very little headway into the mainstream charts. Just like the early Verve performances, the music had huge psychedelic connections and references in the lyrics, such as "I was born to fly, fly, pretty high."

The video for the song was recorded in the flat of its director, Miles Aldridge, in London E1. The song shows the band playing in a dark, hazy room, with a dark blue light in the background. Various band members are seen pushed up against a bare wall.
