The Top Ten

1
Wonderwall
This song will live for generations. It is a Masterpiece that defined Oasis! There's a uniqueness in this song... This song literally speaks out the emotions when a man first falls in love, but the woman isn't aware of it... The song speaks about the man's emotions when he gets his first crush!
This is one song you can listen forever without stopping. I can't imagine myself without this. Being a girl, I would love it if my boyfriend ever sang this song to me while playing the guitar. Wanna impress a girl? Play guitar on this song and there - shes already in love with you.
My Personal Favourite. This Song Is Perfect From Start Till End

2Don't Look Back In Anger
Slip inside the eye of your mind, don't you know you might find, a better place to play. --Best intro lyrics, ever.

dahe24

it sounds like the beatles. pure magic

3Live Forever
Maybe you're the same as me, we see things they'll never see - you and I are gonna live forever
Maybe I just want to fly
I want to live I don't want to die
Maybe I just want to breath
Maybe I just don't believe
Maybe you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever
This is a ridiculously good song, and although there is a lot of competition, it has to be their best. Most people would say Wonderwall just because of its commercial success but this is literally one of the best rock songs ever. The intro drumming, while it was originally covered over some acoustic picking, just sets up the song brilliantly. Also, the guitar, although relatively simple, just fits in perfectly with liams rare but interestingly affectionate singing accompanied by brilliant lyrics. But in my opinion, the guitar solos ultimately make this such a good song; with the first one, it drifts effortlessly around the song but the other solo brings a power to the song that can also be seen through the lyrics. But honestly, although wonderwall and don't look back in anger always grab the headlines, other songs from "definitely maybe" such as "cigarettes and alcohol" and "rock and roll star" should really get into the top ten list easily. Seriously, "Definitely Maybe" is probably the best debut album ever and that's a feat since most bands make/made their best songs and were at their most creative in their first album. I guess it shows what fame does as bands often drift aimlessly like oasis but nonetheless, "live forever" is their best song

4Champagne Supernova
champagne supernova is the best song for me, this song has the best lyrics and the song is very very good
Wonderwall is a great song and all, but it doesn't even begin to compare with this. This song makes me want to cry as I remember the friends I'll never talk to again and the forgotten teenage memories. Thank you for this beautiful song. And thanks Oasis, the best band of all time. It was fun while it lasted.
"Where were you while we where getting High! " one of the best and most catchy lyics ever, Oasis are the best and this song should be higher!

5Slide Away
A few years ago, I only had a few oasis songs in my music collection, those are wonderwall, don't look back in anger and little by little if I recall correctly. I wasn't really into oasis that time until I heard this song, This song is on the top of my music playlist eve higher than stairway to heaven right now. There is something about this song that is so addictive even until now I won't get bored of listening to it 100 times over and over. Even though I myself Couldn't analyze completely the meaning of this song. Its a love song obviously, but a love song that makes me not think about a girl. But make me realize that I haven't found that one perfect person that I want to be with. But of course for other listeners it holds different meanings. Nonetheless This is a incredible song that is sure going to last for generations to come.
I was hesitating between Wonderwall and Slide away but then I realized Wonderwall is so well known that it speaks for itself - so I pick my favorite - energetic love song Slide away - love how it's live and loud but still a beautiful confession to his loved one. Especially love the line - don't know don't care all I know is you can take me there!
Slide Away is by far my favourite Oasis song, and has become one of my favourite songs of all time.

Liam's best vocal performance is on this song, one of Noel's best guitar performances is on this song. This is the epitome of a fantastic love song. Perfection, just amazing.

6Stop Crying Your Heart Out
Every single word in this lyric is magic
Whenever I want to cry this song is my best friend and my reason to stop crying my heart out.
This song has such a strong lyrics...
Every time I'm sad I listen to this song, and it helps me get up again!
One of top 5 Oasis's best songs, they don't have best one, because they are so awesome...
Love you Oasis!
This song should be really in top 3 of this band.
I felt that it has a soul unlike supernova n supersonic. Off all the songs in top ten it's tune itself sells this song and is too catchy. It can be chosen as an evergreen song in one's music collection. All other songs require multiple hears whereas this song will take your heart out for the first listen.

7Supersonic
Why is the only #7? This is probably the coolest sounding song ever. Especially the solo.
"My friend said he'd take you home, sits in his corner all alone. He lives under a waterfall, nobody can see him nobody can ever hear him call. "
I love this song when I heard this song after several times. The beauty of this song comes at the end of this finishing music. The end music just grab the brain and I try to sing the music if I could do it..
I have had a long think about why this is my favourite Oasis song, and well, it is because of the wonderful rhyming of unexpected words. Instead of repetition you are hearing different things mentioned throughout the song, like someone on a supersonic train a doctor on a helicopter, selling the big issue. I will not mention all the lyrics in what I have just mentioned, I will leave it for people to listen to. I think the poetry in this song is so brilliantly well put together it is just as amazing as what one would from from the greatest poets that one would study in English Literature courses. I very much enjoy the steady paced melody and the backing electric guitar music blending together very well. There is probably much more I can say about how I love this song, but I will go away and think about how to put my thoughts together.

8Whatever
The best Oasis song. I can listen to this song over and over again. I never get tired of listening.
And it is the first song of Oasis I heard. And it changed my life. Great Song, great band.
I still remember the first time that I've heard it on the radio. Absolutely brilliant. The end with the guitar and the violins is a masterpiece. Not being on any album made it more special. Fantastic.
One of the best song in Oasis era. This song heard very simply but perfect. One of masterpiece of Oasis

9Stand By Me
Just goes to show that less is not always more! I've always loved the guitar work, the massive sound and especially the heartwarming "brotherly love" moment when Noel joins in with the "Hey hey" just before the chorus. A true gem.
It just makes you look deep inside yourself. The rhythm gives you very special feeling
It should be in the big 3 at least, one of their greatest ever, I think be here now is better than (WTS)Morning Glory anyway

10The Masterplan
The Best Oasis song, full stop. I have every song ever written by Oasis, as they are my second favourite band (behind the Beatles of course), and this is the one song that always does it for me. MUST MUST MUST be higher, if everyone on here had heard it it would be at the top!
Can't believe one of the best tunes was originally a B side
I just discovered this song, and it's amazing! One of my favorites, for sure!

The Contenders

11Some Might Say
Great vocals, great guitars; A GREAT SONG!

rock2metal

Songs got weight "Something that struck in this song is anybody can say anything about anyone or something but the thing that matters is what is the reality and living the reality is the most precious thing
"Some might say they don't believe in heaven, go and say it to the men who lives in hell"

naveenpanwar1

This is the greatest song and hardly anyone knows it beecause they're going too crazy about "wonderwall" and "Don't Look Back In Anger"; the two most overrated songs in the history of music!

12Don't Go Away
I love this song!
So don't go away
Say what you say
Say that you stay
Forever and a day
In the time of my life

I think this song speaks about the love you have for someone and you don't want that person to leave from your life.
I heard this song from my crush and every time we apart I listen to this song and it reminds me of him. Love the part when the music goes "me and you what's going on"
Awesome song. The lyrics, the rhythm, the vocals are very great. Deserves to be at least in Top 5. This should be somewhere after Champagne super nova and wonderwall.

Can't think of anything else to say

18The Importance Of Being Idle
Best on in my opinion
Their first slight diversion from Britpop. A musical and lyrical masterpiece. Oasis at their best! "but I don't mind, as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine"
Soul music with the Oasis twist. An instant classic!
Listen to sample

19The Shock of the Lightning
2nd best after Wonderwall. The Hindu Times should be up there too.

DalglishIsBack

Great song, epic, really underrated, psychodelic and energizing, is like mixing red bull with weed in one song

20The Hindu Times
How can this be at 17?
There's a light - that shines on
Shines on me - and it keeps me warm
It gimme peace - I must say
I can't sleep - 'cause the world won't wait
It should definitely be in top 10
What? This song is so like uplifting spirit type song.. should definitely be top 10.

21All Around the World
The most magical oasis song in their greatest album ever(Be Here Now). So overblown this song is; so overpowering, yet so light and easy;---this is more than an epic, so much greater than the greatest song ever made. From its intro, to the choruses done in step-higher notes, this song is so woefully perfect, just like its fellow "greats", D'you Know what I mean and Let There Be Love.

I do not care if this song would not make it in lists of "greatest" whatsoevers because it already is the best, and that is all that matters. This song is even nearly indescribable because of its immense power; so immense, that is, it sort of collapsed into its own sublimity.
I just don't know why some people don't like Be Here Now much. I mean it's perhaps my favorite oasis record ever, and is perhaps one of my all time favorites. I say that every track is just pure epic and is full of magic, and there's not one bad track in it, so you can play it continuously without any worries that your friends might hear a bad song.

Speaking of All Around The World, I think that it should be on the number 1 spot----don't you see? -----it's oasis's Hey Jude! Please listen to this song and I'm sure you will pretty much like it. Even here in the Philippines, it is the people's favorite...
Slide away, Live Forever, Champagne Supernova, The Masterplan, Whatever are all great songs, don't get me wrong. Champagne Supernova is an anthem, but All Around The World is truly the Oasis "epic".

25Rock 'N' Roll Star
This song's opening riffs alone should put it into top 10
"A live my life for stars that shine, people say it's just waste of time, when they said I should feed my head, that's to me was just day in bed"

This part of the lyrics is amazing, I love this song, it describes myself
I can't say I'm surprised this is so low on the list. This is such an underrated song! If you just listen to it ONE TIME, and that's all I'm asking, you'll see why. Plus, the lyrics 'In my mind those dreams are real/Now you're concerned about the way I feel? ' are so clever and contagious.

Up there with Acquiesce and the Masterplan as one of the greatest b-sides. Great lyrics and an incredible vocal from Liam. This song is rarely mentioned even by fans of the band.

31Cast No Shadow
Rather predictably, Wonderwall sits at the top of the charts. Sadly, this unappreciated gem will never achieve those heights. A shame really, considering it is well written, meaningful and the highlight of Morning Glory
This song is wonderful! Its really speaks trough my heart..
Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say

Chained to all the places that he never wished to stay

71Half the World Away
Absurd, that 61 oasis songs were mentioned before this one. This is a great song, about not wanting to stay small. It's about the importance of leaving home, and doing something with your life.
Definitely me favourite song by Oasis, the fact its number forty lowers my faith in humanity. I joke, but it is brilliant :D :D
'You can't give me the Dreams that are mine anyway, I'm half the world away, half the world away, I'm half the world away, I've been lost, I've been found but I don't feel down! '
What is this doing down here? Give a vote people, amazing song!

How is this song at a low rank it's my favorite song from them and it came out in Eden of the East
This song is absolutely incredible! It's far too good to be this far away from number one! Hell I'd go as far as saying it should number one!
People have clearly never heard this song because if they did this song would be #1 (Give it a chance)!

Addictive, propelling. It's heavily fueled with simple, yet catchy melodic vocals. It's a song that displays pure talent in a band that relies heavily on too many catchy chords and melodies. This one shows off their heart and energy. Their isn't a song in their catalog that sounds like it
This song has some incredible lyrics. I can't tell you the way I feel because the way I feel is also new to me. The instruments are also extremely awesome and that's why this song should be in the top 10.
This song is seriously underrated! One of the best Oasis songs there is
