Oasis AND lists?!!

1. The Masterplan (great lyrics)
2. Let There Be Love (one of the classic vocal performances from both brothers)
3. Talk Tonight (Love it. So thoughtful, tender and reflective)
4. Underneath the sky (One of their best intros ever IMO)
5. Don't Look Back In Anger (Possibly perfection. Gets even better on FTM when the crowd sing the chorus)
6. Half The World Away (The song that got me into the band)
7. Whatever (Not so sure about the "get on the bus" bit but it's a great tune nonetheless)
8. Supersonic (The high vocal of the bridge is fantastic)
9. My Big Mouth ( the ending)
10. Idler's Dream (Beautiful, simply beautiful )

Honourable mentions: Everything else they've done. The fact we all chose so many different songs for our top ten shows their wide appeal. And also, Headshrinker. The song to play people when they argue Liam can't sing, followed by Little James (ignore the lyrics, the vocal people, it's all about THAT vocal!) or Let There Be Love.

Yeah, I like, Nay, LOVE the B-sides! (though didn't reckon a lot to Lyla's B-sides. Eyeball Ticker?? Were The Importance of Being Idle ones any better?)

Don't be ridiculous! Oasis have never written a good song in their entire career! Now how many utterly fantastic songs they have written is completely another matter

Seriously though, with me Oasis songs seem to veer between the excellent (most of them) and the amazingly terrible (a merciful few). But each to their own and all that

What about "Won't Let You Down"? It's one of Liam's best songs yet.

As for the "Importance of Being Idle" B-sides, yeah, they're pretty good. There's "Pass Me Down the Wine," another great Liam tune with a kind of flamenco rhythm and acoustic guitar and some harmonies similar to "Guess God Thinks I'm Abel." Then there's "The Quiet Ones" (which ought to be right up your alley), a short acoustic number with a nice vocal.

Oh, and my top ten ever would probably be:

1) "Fade Away"
2) "Stand By Me"
3) "Stay Young"
4) "The Masterplan"
5) "Live Forever"
6) "Champagne Supernova"
7) "Rock 'N' Roll Star"
8) "Guess God Thinks I'm Abel"
9) "Listen Up"
10) "Whatever"

Well, I actually confess that i liked Oasis at least until Standing on the shoulders of giants, i have all their records until that one and i used to liked them. But I start disliking them because in the end they have no more surprised me, it's like they're doing everytime the same songs..........
And Liam, he's the luckiest man in the world, he can't do a damn thing and he's got so much money!
I got tired of all their usual proclamations about being the very best band in the world, and the rest is nothing! They actually never proved to be great musicians, they're vagabonds to explore new grounds, they've never put themselves in discussion. Listening to them became like eating every day the same meal............i'm afraid about, i actually thought that Oasis would have written a new page of rock n roll, but they became monotonous and predictable. I mean, who in this world will remember in ten years tracks like Lyla or The importance of being idle? Come on, these are senseless pop songs, like many many others. I don't speak like someone who just wants to bash down Oasis, I speak as a former Oasis fan who really got frustrated of a band that spends its time just to watch itself in the mirror thinking it is the most beautiful thing in music.........................but it's absolutely not.
I don't want to discuss your taste of course, in the end it's just my opinion, it's obvious you may see it different.
But I still believe that Noel Gallagher is a great artist, he's wasting his time with Oasis and his fortunate stupid brother!
A solo career would be much more appropriate for him.

I admit I did quite enjoy that but it didn't seem to be in the same category for me as the HC B-sides.

I thought that when I saw it in HMV (why they insist on putting the singles and music mags right in front of the tills in one of their stores so you have to be queuing to look at them is beyond me. Apart from the sheer inconvience of joining the queue to get near the mags, thus holding up everyone else when you get there it also means that if you're queuing up with purchases, cash in hand ready to pay and spot something else you want to buy you've got to fiddle about getting more cash out. It's crazy!) So it's acoustic...as soon as I knew it was written by Gem I thought, "This is gonna be a load of senseless noise". You've convinced me if I see it I'll probably buy it now.

I can relate to that. Don't get me wrong, I do love their stuff, but they have been many times when I've felt like they were just going through the motions and I KNEW they could do better. IMHO DBTT has finally been the album when Oasis have got the message that 'average' simply won't do. But after 2 years in the making it's just as well!

I think there are far better songs off Don't Believe The Truth that show Oasis have 'returned to form' than the ones that have been released as singles. I like TIOBI but as an album track, not as a single.
