The Aranbee Pop Symphony Orchestra

The Aranbee Pop Symphony Orchestra was created in the early days of Immediate Records, Andrew Loog Oldham's upstart 1960s independent label. Faced with a need for publicity and not yet having any artists capable of generating a media splash on their own, Oldham decided to use what he did have: easy access to the Rolling Stones' songbag, through his management of the group, and a favor or two that he could call in from the quintet. The Andrew Loog Oldham Orchestra, which had previously cut some modestly successful instrumental versions of pop hits, was rechristened the Aranbee Pop Symphony Orchestra and Keith Richards was announced as directing the orchestra. In fact, Richards' participation probably went no further than being present at the press event announcing the project. If there were any specific pop/rock personalities or projects that influenced the new project, they were likely Joshua Rifkin and his Baroque Beatles Book album and, possibly, the Jan & Dean Pop Symphony No. 1 album. The idea was to generate publicity for the new label, which the record did, and maybe some sales and income, which it didn't. The Aranbee Pop Symphony Orchestra went out of existence as soon as its one and only album was released, the latter sank with barely a trace and was a 500 dollar collector's item by the late '80s. It began showing up on CD in the early '90s as a piece of Rolling Stones-related ersatz. ~ Bruce Eder

I wonder if they got screwed on the sampling license like the Verve.... BTW it sounds like a bad cover. Oh wait a second...

The Verve version's vocals are way better. And the actual music is the same. So your better off just listening to the original version by The Verve.

Bitter Sweet Symphony is a song by English alternative rock band The Verve, and is the lead track on their third studio album, Urban Hymns (1997). It is based on an Andrew Loog Oldham orchestral version of The Rolling Stones' song, The Last Time from which it samples a main theme.

Can see Reese Witherspoon driving her dead boyfriend's car with that little $h!+ EATING smile on her face when I hear this song.

This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either be kissed or asked out. If you break this chain, you will see a little girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.

I'll never understand why bands cover a song and contribute nothing new. Why? What's the point? It's exactly the same except for the tenor of the vocalist's voice. Cover it live if you like the song, but releasing it for consumption is lame. The Verve secured the rights to use 5 notes of the melody from the Aranbee Symphony (a piece Mick and Richards had nothing to do with). The Verve used 7 notes and so... the lawsuit (only after the song became popular). The vocal is all Verve.

The singer sounds like Stacy Funk of a band called Girl Kicks Boy. I wonder whatever happened to her. She had a pretty cool voice and good stage presence.
Based out of Tempe, AZ and voted AZ 2004 Best Female Fronted Band Girl Kicks Boy is a up and coming high energy rock band.

It was The Andrew Oldham Orchestra, later known as the Aranbee Pop Symphony Orchestra, who first recorded this. Oldham was manager of the Rolling Stones at the time, and had access to their songs.
