Challenge: a song that you can play on an instrument
I don’t play any instruments although at one point in my life I’ve always wanted to play the piano and the violin. If I could play any song on an instrument, though, it’ll be The Verve’s ‘Bittersweet Symphony’. This song is nothing but the truth about life!
Quick fact: The strings were sampled from the 1965 Andrew Oldham Orchestra symphonic recording of “The Last Time” which was inspired by the 1965 Rolling Stones’ song of the same title, but for me, ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ will always belong to The Verve.
‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
You’re a slave to money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the veins meet yeah,
