like this song.

yea me too Ang...do you know that Richard Ashcroft doesn't make a penny from this song-check this out...

Although the song's lyrics were written by Verve vocalist Richard Ashcroft, it has been credited to Keith Richards and Mick Jagger after charges by the original copyright owners that the song was plagiarized from the Andrew Oldham Orchestra recording of The Rolling Stones' 1965 song "The Last Time".

Originally, The Verve had negotiated a licence to use a sample from the Oldham recording, but it was successfully argued that the Verve had used 'too much' of the sample.[5] Despite having original lyrics, the music of "Bitter Sweet Symphony" is partially based on the Oldham track, which led to a lawsuit with ABKCO Records, Allen Klein's company that owns the rights to the Rolling Stones material of the 1960s. The matter was eventually settled, with copyright of the song reverting to ABKCO and songwriting credits to Jagger and Richards.

"We were told it was going to be a 50/50 split, and then they saw how well the record was doing," says band member Simon Jones. "They rung up and said 'we want 100 per cent or take it out of the shops', you don't have much choice."[6]

After losing the composer credits to the song, Richard Ashcroft commented, "This is the best song Jagger and Richards have written in 20 years."[7] saying it was their biggest hit since "Brown Sugar".[6]

Listening to the Jailhouse phone calls of 3 defendants in a case of mine. Fun times.

It is amazing how much they will speak even though they know and are told repeatedly they are being recorded. State or Fed?

NECRO- I NEED DRUGZ

Maybe I'm a jerk but it makes me feel good right now to know that there are other people in this world who make decisions that are dumber than mine.

Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band / Back Off Boogaloo

produced by George-sounds like his slide on the studio version Drums... he got the idea from talking to Marc Bolan when he kept using the word boogaloo in every other sentence-Borgo would be proud

Hendrix - Valleys of Neptune. No doubt one of his best posthumous releases. They did a really great job with the remastering on this one.

New MGMT that comes out in a few weeks. It's actually surprisingly really good. Got to respect them for not taking the easy route and just making a bunch of pop songs for radio play which they could have easily done at this point. I'm sure there's going to be a ton of disappointed people when they don't hear Oracular Spectacular Part Deux, but IMO music diehards are going to get an enjoyable hour out of this one.
