Following on from last week’s injection of culture in this series, today we’re going to almost completely the opposite end of the spectrum.
I’ve never really been that great a fan of Oasis; I bought a few of their early singles, still love Definitely Maybe to this day, but think that (What’s The Story) Morning Glory is massively over-rated and all that came after that was just a bit meh. (Controversial, I know, but I actually prefer Be Here Now, the self-indulgent, over-produced, coke-driven album. There I’ve said it.) In fact, I’d go so far as to say that after Definitely Maybe, there are five, maybe six, songs from the rest of their repertoire that I have any time for.
This is one of them, and while I know most will point to Live Forever as being their finest moment, if I really had to choose, I’d probably say that this is my favourite song of theirs, although it is slightly spoiled by the cheering and shouts of “Number One!” at the end.
Whatever reached #3 in the UK Charts in 1995. That’ll learn ’em.
