A summer sun that blows my mind
Is falling down on all that I've ever known
Time will kiss the world goodbye
Falling down on all that I've ever known
Is all that I've ever known

A dying scream makes no sound
Calling out to all that I've ever known
Here am I lost and found
Calling out to all

We live a dying dream
If you know what I mean
All that I've ever known
It's all that I've ever known

Catch the wheel that breaks the butterfly
I cried the rain that fills the ocean wide
I tried to talk with God to no avail
Calling my name and out of nowhere
I said "If you won't save me please don't waste my time"

All that I've ever known
It's all that I've ever known

Catch the wheel that breaks the butterfly
I cried the rain that fills the ocean wide
I tried to talk with God to no avail
Calling my name and out of nowhere
"And if you won't save me please don't waste my time"

A summer sun that blows my mind
Is falling down on all that I've ever known
Time will kiss the world goodbye
Falling down on all that I've ever known
Is all that I've ever known

The beginning of this lures me into thinking it's "Mexican Radio" by Wall of Voodoo

 how did this silly rumor ever get started?

 
A convincing argument could be made that there are hints of Beatles in every rock song since 1964....lol
I was in an elevator with Noel Gallagher once. He's really....short. LOL 
Wow, lol was enjoying this tune, then checked who it was and found Oasis lol.  Well, I live here in Manchester, but do not like Oasis hahah, So, have to give high score for these guys for this tune which I really do like. 

Cannot believe I would like one of their tunes, but here I am.....
Oasis will always rock my world.

Tomorrow Never Knows.

I don't know this but I think I really like it....who knew?!
Oi! Stop whining thru yer nose ya little wanker!
Oasis without the annoying voice. Maybe I leave the PSD-button untouched this time.
This is the good Oasis. Great song.

Yeah- I missed the turning point where they got down to actually playing music rather than 'painting in sound?'

Quite pleasant.  Agree with the Tears for Fears / Doves comparisons, but I still get the unmistakable Oasis vibe, contrived or not.

This is really good - I forget sometimes that latter day Oasis had its good moments. 7->8

Unfortunately, Noel on vocals prevents it from climbing any higher than that. It does suffer from the same problem as every other Noel-on-vocals Oasis song: You keep imagining how great it could really be if only he let the more gifted brother sing. Oh well.


So much better with Noel on vocals

My exact thoughts. Can't believe these guys ever did anything this good.

Stunned actually.

Did I just hear Oasis using a Mellotron?

Soild effort guys{#Daisy} 

I tried to talk with God to no avail
I called him up in-and-out of nowhere
I said If you won't save me, please don't waste my time




This song is cool...  dig it...

Agreed nobody in America seems to have even heard Definitely Maybe or the critical masterpiece of a b side album. They might have heard Morning Glory, which is great, but the former is so much better in my opinion. I miss the raw sound they used to have. It's no surprise that they win best album of all time polls with these efforts.

 

I'm in America and I've practically worn out my copy of Definitely Maybe... Though I went through quite the Anglophile phase in the mid 90's, so I guess I'm unusual from my countrymen...
I saw a small new concert at tv, it was really bad, boring! But this tune, i like!

If you can't hear the pure rock and roll exhilaration in Morning Glory or Bring It On Down (which for reasons I don't fathom are not playlisted on RP), then you don't have a pulse.

Their personal flaws, of which there are a lot, notwithstanding, these guys have made some epic rock music.

(Voiceover): OK, now back to "Wimpoid Android Void" by Radiohead.

Damn!  the first couple seconds had me thinking it was "Mexican Radio"


      . . .oops - I see I'm not the only one!


maybe Bill will play it. . . . .wait for it. . .

But there is more pure rock and roll exhilaration in the song Morning Glory than there is the entire catalogs of some bands.

 
One trick pony's that could have been so much better if they weren't obsessed with telling the world
how "fookin great" they were...it's not about being the best band in the world it's about enjoying  the music they produce.
It stunted everything after the first album..then they got bitter as other, more genuine bands surpassed the sound they thought was there own.

I'll admit they did do a couple of songs I liked, but the Verve for instance blew them away.

Nein, nein, nein, nein!

NEIN NEIN NEIN NEIN NEIN!

My thoughts exactly, except for the office part.

Can't say much for this song though.

Not an Oasis fan in general, but I really dig this. Reminds me of later, more experimental Tears for Fears as well.


We be dancing...  awesome song...

Like the lyrics and the song. Kinda sad/hopeless.
Is anyone else (besides me) ever surprised by their own rating?  

Seriously - you look to see what song is playing and you see that you rated it, and the rating surprises you.  Well, it happens to me.  

Wow...I thought it was the Doves at first. A surprise from Oasis.
Wow. Oasis with Mellotron?  Cognitive dissonance...
i'm not sure if i can love a song more....
NEVER listened to them in the 90s because of the big-huge-fat hype around oasis then
(and because of those front "boys" not exactly looking good & having quite a silly hairdo...but acting up so big mouthy & self-opinionated...)
(and the music beeing just too "soft"...)

...today I like this song...process of getting older...or...so...?

I'm not an Oasis fan but I do like this. {#Bananajam}

Hopefully the two Gallagher dunces meant it when they split the band up.

Their obsession with Beatles was their downfall....oh yeah and being crap to begin with didn't help.

Good but they have better.

Nice tune!

very likeable. surprised it was by oasis
DIG OUT YOUR SOUL   good album title
the Gallaghers are back  in form on this outing! Sounds great in the car...always a great test.


This song is groovy...

Oasis aren't very original...but they are very enjoyable...and this album spends a lot of time blasting out of my car speakers.  It's only rock and roll...but I like it!

But then why not just listen to Doves? It really bothers me that Oasis can't just have their own sound. All band are inspired by other bands, but few rip off their inspiration more often than Oasis.

BOO.

 
I do understand where you're coming from on this, but how far do you want to take it?  Why not just listen to The Beatles?  Why not listen to Grog banging two rocks together?

That being said, this song is a dead-on Doves ripoff. 


the beginning resounds suspiciously "WALL OF VOODOO - MEXICAN RADIO".
Such a coincidence ;-)

I'm still reacting this way every time I hear it... only I can't remember what the old Oasis sounded like and whether I didn't like it or not... I know I didn't really like it.

I have to agree. I've liked Oasis in the past, but this album shows growth in their music that I frankly wasn't expecting.

The tune before this from Calexico was truly original.  Oasis is less so, but that doesn't make them bad.  I'm just sayin'.

Top Band Top Song, to sell out wembley stadium for three nights, shows how great they are in the uk, the US never liked them, thats a shame they could fill many stadiums across the us{#Razz}


This is a cool song...


I just have never liked  Oasis. Just because I'm biased and have always thought they were overrated tossers.   But...I have to admit, this alblum is good. I didn't even want to like it but its good. I like it a lot.

I feel like that thing (antagonist) in the Green Eggs and Ham book.

anyway.  this is one of the best songs on the alblum as well. a good driving song.

This is the best thing Oasis has done in a long time...turn it up {#Cool}
Latest album, first album, any album in between...what does it matter?  I don't hate it i just think its been years so if you don't actually have a second thought sit down.
