"Life Is Sweet" is a song by the English big beat duo The Chemical Brothers, released as the second and final single from their first album, Exit Planet Dust. It features Tim Burgess from The Charlatans on vocals. It reached number 25 on the UK Singles Chart.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song shows The Chemical Brothers playing the song and controlling five people: a couple, two children, and Burgess, the lead singer of the song. In the video, The Chemical Brothers realise that some of their equipment is breaking and Tom Rowlands tries to fix it.

Track listing[edit]

The remixes of the song notably contain very little of the original track. Daft Punk's remix was reportedly only the duo's third released recording. "If I Kling to Me I'll Klong to You" originally appeared on the 12-inch only My Mercury Mouth E.P (1994).
