Found what I'd lost inside
My spirit has been purified
Take a thorn from my pride
And hand in hand we'll take a walk outside

Thank you for the sun the one that shines on everyone
Who feels love
Now there's a million years between my fantasies and fears
I feel love

Leaving all that I see
Now all my emotions fill the air I breath

Now you understand that this is not the promised land
They spoke of
There's nothing more to be
If you can be the remedy who heals love

I thank you for the sun the one that shines on everyone
Who feels love
Now there's a million years between my fantasies and fears
I feel love

I thank you for the sun the one that shines on everyone
Who feels love
Now there's a million years between my fantasies and fears
I feel love

The problem with Oasis is they  released two of the best rock albums ever, back to back. They are now dismissed due their inability to top DM and WTSMG. This is a terrific song from the weakest album. IMHO,

Massively boring.
this song reminds me of good times from decades ago

Much frustration unto thee of short attention span.
Liam, like Chris Robinson,  had the VOX for 2  solid rock albums.   But like many good tv series,  they don't know when to stop.    and, why  here on RP,   THIS  track from all of the Oasis songs?

Shouldn’t they be standing on the shoulders – plural – of giants?  I suppose there could be a pair of giant Siamese twins joined at the shoulder. Seems a bit cruel to stand on them, though.

 
If the giant is giant enough, I'm sure one could easily fit standing on just one shoulder.  I'm at a 3 on this one....not quite auto-skip for me...pretty close though....Long Live RP!!
Great (!) tune for our rock choir. Haters, suck it!

Okay, that's a different thing.
Learn to sing like Liam Gallager 101
1) Deep breath
2) Two fingers down throat
3) One thumb up own butt (optional)
Yeah this is not Oasis best moment. Very dreary tune.

Really? Have you heard even HALF of the Beatles albums?

Revolver?

Rubber Soul?
Sgt Peppers?

Go have a listen...then get back to us! :-)

Album cover looks south, from 30 Rock, on the shoulders of which the photographer was standing  One can just see in the distance, to the left shoulder of the Empire St., a couple buildings that once stood near Manhattan's tip.

Yes.
All that, AND, note what a blatant plea for acceptance by an American audience this album art is!

And I must mention (as I have elsewhere), I believe the name of the album is a subconscious tip-o-the hat (by the Gallaghers) to the Beatles, the musical giants on whose shoulders they stood, by doing their damnedest to sound like the greatest band ever to come out of Britain.

Oh, and by the way, Wikipedia says the photo was shot from the roof of 500 5th Ave...(the building occupied by, amongst others, Zara and Muji) which makes sense, otherwise you'd SEE 500 5th Ave in the foreground, not the HSBC Bank Tower, which is the case.
I love love LOVE this song!  I'm a big fan of Oasis, and this song is by far my favorite.  Thank you, Bill and Rebecca.

HA! You wins the interwebs, today.
These guys were so overrated. It's not offensive, but I don't miss it when it's over.

I'll take Tears for Fears "Sowing The Seeds of Love" when I want to hear a Lennon/Beatles homage.

Even the best, catchiest, most musically ambitious Oasis songs (of which there are quite a few) seem to reach a point around the 3 and a half minute mark when their producer's ideas run out and they just "jam" (I believe that's the phrase) for a further 2-3 eons (usually my patience never lasts out till the actual end of the recording, the droning urges my finger to press the forward arrow), moaning the same phrase over and over and over. This one, though, doesn't beat about the bush and actually kicks off with the moaning droning, and I wonder if this isn't part of a conspiracy to discredit Oasis by playing this solitary track ad nauseum (well we passed that point ages ago) - the feeble connection with George Harrison's sitar period could be illustrated by a handful of other Oasis tracks too. Anyway, an otherwise decent mix this evening was not at all ruined by this godawful interlude - it's just that, when Oasis were so prolific, why does it always seem to be the same (not their best) track on RP? Do they let this one get played for free?

Good John Lennon voice cover, otherwise, a pure waste of oxygen.
Thank you Bill and Rebecca for keeping this song in the rotation.

Great recording of this when Beatles toured Japan. Only available bootleg. 
This and the last two songs are part of a 10 year-old RP playlist—in the same order...I suspect the next few songs will also be from the same playlist.

Too bad this isn't one of them.

I never followed Oasis all that closely but it seems like they relied on certain gimmicks a lot, some of which were borrowed from the Beatles. They had an interesting sound but that doesn't take you too far if the lyrics are forgettable and you don't change things up too much. 

As for the Gallagher brothers and their personal dramas—seems kinda laughable now, doesn't it? Sort of like the furor over Justin Bieber's antics. File under: Where Are They Now?

Well, I like the album art. As a location scout for film, TV and photo I think I've been on the 5th Avenue roof at 42nd St. from which this photo was taken. As for the music...how many bands does this one sound like? 

 
you know, if I was a betting man .....I'd say that cover shot was taken looking south from the top of Rockefeller Center.
Music = good. Band = wankers. So unfortunate.
I never realised they tried so hard to (unsuccessfully) sound like the Beatles. Appalling.
I've got so much to do today...but I can't break away from this station.....every song holds me here....someone help me???
horrible, and I hardly ever say bad things about any music. yucko

Everybody in my church loves this song...
 
Bill, I see what you're playing at with your programming... gotta love it.... this song following John Lennon's Imagine... it's a cool juxtaposition... Keep that coming, in all flavors...
Wow! These guys sound just like Fountains of Wayne. {#Mrgreen}
I could give a crap what anyone else says or thinks.....I LOVE OASIS!!! {#Sunny}

For me after the initial success of Definitely Maybe they could have pretty much sat down again and said yeah that's all we got
There's nothing wrong with being a Beatles cover band... as long as you admit it.


yeah, this is one fine song...  love it...

I think there was a certain amusement to see them crash and burn. Part of their 'charm' was their arrogance and this was what defined them from the outset. 

Hey. . . they produced some splendid stuff and gave us all a laugh. I for one still like to play the occasional track and this would be one of them.
Oasis in Paradise...
WOW! This grabs you!




love this song...


Yeah, i was actually willing to swear they're gonna start playing a beatles song in the middle of it. pathetic.
Pure Beatles. As usual...
excellent
In this i hear the Beatles Influence!
i´m not an absolute fan, but i understand that oasis is a great band. this is one of the tracks i do not like at all. first times you here this it is simply boring, but what´s worse if you here it again it get´s annoying, and more of that each time you here it again. in the end it´s really torture...

Don't really like Oasis. But I kinda like this.
I think Noel was quoted as saying that Oasis should have split years before they did - gone out on a high like The Jam did, without outstaying their welcome - but he said he didn't have to guts to, and anyway he didn't want bandmembers to lose their jobs. Having said that, thankfully common sense has prevailed and we don't have to hear any more duff, derivative Oasis albums.
Affected 'rock star' voice.
All band drama aside, Noel Gallagher is seriously underrated...

I dig it.  I could drive to this.  Bonus points to that classic Oasis snare usage.
Pretty good - like the slide guitar but his voice still nips my head.
Killer guitar riff and beautiful melody.  Liam goes just a tad over the edge with his voice, but I do love it.
Nice Beetle style groove

Still, though, I'd say their a rock band. But, anyway, to each his own.


 

If you get a chance, go see Oasis live.  They effin rock.

So, Radiohead mostly doesn't rock, and the preponderance of what I hear on RP and elsewhere is tortured, poncey colon blow like Creep.

Have you heard "Electioneering", off of OK Computer? That song totally rocks. Great guitar riff, and it's loud & fast. I also love the part in "Paranoid Android" where the electric guitar kicks in (around halfway into the song); it totally rocks, I think. The Bends had a few songs that I'd consider rock songs - "Just", "The Bends",and "Black Star", which all meet the criteria you mentioned for a rock song - "loud guitars, roaring drums, up tempo". Pablo Honey, their first album, is their most straightforward rock album, where at least half of the songs would fall into your definition of a rock song...most notably, "You", "How Do You?", "Prove Yourself", and "Ripcord". Now, these songs just meet your criteria of a rock song; however, what makes something a rock song is very subjective. It's like arguing the difference between rock, hard rock, and heavy metal...each person is going to have a different opinion, and no one is right or wrong. However, using your criteria, I challenge you to go to Amazon & listen to any of these songs and tell me they aren't rock. You may not like them, but they are rock songs.

There are apparently some good musicians in the band but all I can hear is Thom Yorke's caterwauling. Couldn't help but notice that you gave I Might Be Wrong a 2 ... I repeat: Radiohead doesn't rock. Show me an actual rock song by Radiohead --- I keep asking and nobody can come up with one. Listen to Morning Glory before you respond --- that's a rock song. On the subject of musicianship, for my money the best musicians to emerge in the last decade are in Porcupine Tree. And I can actually listen to them.

Oasis had maybe 3 songs that were worth listening to....I know this because my wife has everything they ever recorded, from singles to albums, limited editions , you name it...I've also been dragged along to their concerts twice (back in the day)...so I do speak from experience.I'm happy to say she has seen the light and no longer puts either of us through it. SAVE YOURSELVES!
And for what it's worth, the Oasis tunes that are on the RP playlist are NOT a good representation of the band at its best. Definitely Maybe and Morning Glory are classics, and there is a total of two songs from them in the RP library.

If you read back through the thread, where this began was with my reference to (What's The Story) Morning Glory by Oasis, which is an actual rock song ... loud guitars, roaring drums, up tempo ... the very antithesis of Radiohead. I am told there are good songwriters and good musicians in Radiohead. That doesn't change the fact that all I (and a sizeable minority of RP listeners) can hear is Thom Yorke whining. And after the THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of plays of Radiohead tunes on RP, it can hardly be called a kneejerk any more. I still hate em.
