The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony

The Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony


"Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life / Trying to make ends meet / You're a slave to money then you die."

The leading track from The Verve's iconic Urban Hymns album ran into trouble by sampling Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham's orchestral cover of the Jagger/Richards track The Last Time. 

It was claimed that the track used a significant proportion of the original arrangement and awarded a partial songwriting credit to the two Stones.
