Difficulty Level: Beginner Genre: Pop

A hit on both the UK and US charts, “Bitterweet Sympnony” has had an interesting history. The recording samples an obscure orchestral version of the Rolling Stone’s 1965 hit, “The Last Time.” Since its 1997 release, it made the charts, was featured in the 1998 movie Cruel Intentions, and was featured in several commercials, including one for Nike.
