Sticky Fingers track listing

"Bitch" is a song by the English rock band The Rolling Stones from their 1971 album Sticky Fingers.[1] Despite not being used as an official single by itself, the tune has garnered major airplay from classic rock and rock n roll radio stations. With a bombastic use of brass, the track is not about a specific woman, but it instead focuses on how, in general, "love is a bitch".

One of the more popular numbers on Sticky Fingers, "Bitch" had more than enough hooks to make it as a hit single, though it was only used as a B-side (to "Brown Sugar"). (Richie Unterberger, AllMusic)[1]

Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, "Bitch" was recorded during October 1970 at London's Olympic Studios, and at Stargroves utilising the Rolling Stones Mobile studio.[2]
