A better breakdown of the information and a mention of the Staples Singers would help =[edit]

CBC Radio[edit]

Bitter Sweet Symphony is used as the theme for the CBC Radio program "Tapestry". This should be included. 142.26.194.190 (talk) 16:15, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

Lyrics[edit]

The lyrics are:

"He has got trousers on, yes he has, yes he has; He has got trousers on, yes he has, yes he has; He has got trousers on, yes he has, yes he has; He has got trousers on, yes he has, yes he has..."

And I can't remember the rest. I hope this helps. 77.96.122.131 (talk) 22:02, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Which came first, the song or the sample?[edit]

A bit of uncertainty here - the wording of the article, saying that "Bittersweet Symphony" was "based on music from an Andrew Loog Oldham adaptation of a Rolling Stones song, 'The Last Time,'" implies that the sample came first and the song was constructed around it. But I've always believed that the song was recorded, mixed and considered finished BEFORE producer Youth listened through it, said he felt it needed something extra and suggested adding the string sample.

Any clarification on this? Tonythepixel (talk) 21:20, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Songwriting Credits[edit]

The article as it currently stands (15 October 2011) claims that the credited songwriters are Jagger and Richards. But other sources, such as this,http://www.scribd.com/doc/60317315/Bittersweet-Symphony claim that the credits are to Ashcroft, Jagger and Richards. This makes more sense, as it is not disputed that the lyrics are by Ashcroft. So can anyone find an authoritative source (by which I don't mean press articles or interviews) and give the correct position?109.157.227.44 (talk) 17:35, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Allmusic lists (Keith Richards / Mick Jagger / Richard Ashcroft), and I think that since that site is a guide and not a periodical, that should work.
