Slip inside the eye of your mind, don't you know you might find, a better place to play. --Best intro lyrics, ever. - dahe24
Lovely lyrics with emotional guitar riff, noel is genius! And lyrically insane! It was good to have him in oasis..
it sounds like the beatles. pure magic
One of the few correct positions on this site. Classic!V 68 Comments
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
Should be 1stV 71 Comments
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 ...more
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
My second favourite - PatrickStar3V 54 Comments
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.
For me at least, Champagne Supernova represents all Oasis COULD'VE been. Even being the Legend they are, their career was forever relegated to just being considered "Beatles imitators" and thereafter trying to live up to the enormous shadow their first two records set. Through all my years of listening, the fact remains that Oasis has a definite "sound" to it. Being chained down to the "brit pop" genre has kept Oasis from being considered not only one of the greatest and most successful rock bands ever, to being THE greatest.
Champagne Supernova is forever the exception. This song is where they truly shone brightest. Just a tiny glimpse of that transcendent, world igniting talent the world was begging for in the 90's. It completely flew in the face of all they had created up to that point. The amount of variety in the melodies, the sharp changes in tone throughout, the masterful blending of 60's acid pop with contemporary anthemic arena rock. For ...more
This is my favourite Oasis song because it's brilliantly put together. It's epic and anthemic, lyrically and musically brilliant and a total classic!V 62 Comments
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 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.
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..
She sniffs it on a tissue, selling the big issueV 38 Comments
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. It's 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!
Noel's songwriting hits you right to the heart coupled with Liam's unique singing style. Despite all odds, he wants to be with this person and just slide away. It is a beautiful song that builds until it becomes unbearable to not be with this person. Not a love song that is slow and simple, but it demands the listeners attention with everything climaxing at the end. And the guitars are fantastic, not overdone, but adding to the flavor of the song.
This should be the overplayed Oasis song that everyone around the world knows. However that's probably what makes it so great. Only proper Oasis fans know and appreciate what a masterpiece this song really is.V 28 Comments
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
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.
On a dreary bus ride into school in the morning, this cut through the fog. This is real! )V 16 Comments
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.
A little Bit moody but full of emotion...can't understand how this is so far down the list?V 23 Comments
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!
Not really the best song, but up there - NairnC1704V 33 Comments
The loud massive power of Morning Glory makes it the number one oasis song for me. The influences are numerous including REM the one I love guitar riff. And the Beatles Tommorrow Never Knows song title in their lyrics. They also seem to be influenced by themselves. "All your dreams are made with strawberry lemonade" in Talk Tonight.
The song is about battling cocaine addiction. And then coming out into the world. (Today is going to be the day all the world will see) No better sound sonically. The watery wah wah pedal riff. Amazing intro, solo, and outro. Number one! - Bobby61189
This is too low
Need a little time to wake and move this high up on the list!
Absolute banger but a bit heavy - NairnC1704V 5 Comments
Great vocals, great guitars; A GREAT SONG! - rock2metal
The heaviness of the guitars in the intro get your attention right away. The lyrics aren't Noel at his strongest alone, but Liam's singing make them sound much better. Besides the breakdown around 2:03 sound like spaceships! Harmonizing from Liam and Noel sounds incredible, their singing goes together like peanut butter and jelly.
This is my favorite Oasis song of all time. Personally, I think it is their best. Guitar is great, lyrics are thought provoking, and like many of their songs, good no matter your mood. Brooding, positive, melancholy, optimistic... This song has it all.
Eh, overrated - NairnC1704V 16 Comments
Song that make us believe they will come back together. Heck a rock song, best live performance ever -Live at Manchester-
Easily the best Oasis song. Wonderful lyrics, wonderful music and one hell of a rock song. Shouldn't have been a b-side.
Definitely the best Oasis song, even though pretty much all of their songs are amazing.
Both Noel and Liam sing enough saidV 4 Comments
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
Was my favourite at one point, but kind of SLID AWAY! get it - NairnC1704V 16 Comments
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.
Whilst this might not be Oasis' most commercially successful production, it is arguably the most emotionally powerful. In particular, the clear vulnerability in Liam's vocal line is astounding. The addition of the horns and the strings into the layering only adds to this. Although it would have been nice to hear more of a sense of the mustique demo in the sound (perhaps to remove any remnants of slide away, and give it a more unique feel), this song demonstrates a side to the band that is rarely seen in Oasis, and it is truly moving!
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"
Amazing song. Amazing lyrics
Seriously, how is this not top ten at te very least?!
It's your youth encapsulated into a 5 minute song. It says everything you're feeling in 7 sentences of lyrics. It defines your adolescence and teenager years.
Should be much higher. No song ever summed up being young and on the scene in Manchester in the late 80s/early 90s better than this. I listen to this and to makes me feel like I can still make it happen - and we all can you know. Inspiring and utterly mancunian
The end is good, start is mediocre - NairnC1704V 9 Comments
How is this not in the top 5 it's probably one the best, especially the way it gradually builds up.
For the love of god! This deserves top 5!... Most intriguing lyrics and the sound so matching the lyrics
Just listen, you ll realize how good this song is.
Nice, but I feel like liam couldve sung it better - NairnC1704V 11 Comments
One of the bests
Probably the best vocals of an oasis track ladies and gentlemen Noel Gallagher.
I wanna talk tonight!
Boring. that's why noel sings it - NairnC1704V 5 Comments
This is The Best Song Oasis ever made. It's not the most commercial or Immediately Catchy but Give it a good listen and You'll be hooked for Life! I Think it's BRILLIANT! It sounds like a tribute to David Bowie's "Heroes" Which is also a Fantastic Song!
One of the best Oasis songs ever. Extremely underrated. - thetoddster49
Shut up and listen up this song
Great song and Liam voice in the chorus make it fantasticV 4 Comments
I can't believe this song is so low on the list, one of the best tracks of Oasis, It's so beautiful and the voices of Noel and Liam blend in so well... And well I don't need to tell you about the lyrics... BEAUTIFUL...
incredible song. very powerful when noel starts singing. 10/10
A seriously underrated song which should be in the top 5!
Not my personal favourite, but should be higher than 18 - NairnC1704V 4 Comments
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.
My first oasis song and is one their best
The best song ever! About Hindu times
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.
"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
This song's opening riffs alone should put it into top 10
ABSOLUTE BANGER. Not my favourite but top 5 for sure! - NairnC1704V 2 Comments
Great song, epic, really underrated, psychodelic and energizing, is like mixing red bull with weed in one song
My both romantic and energetic track from my favorite band. This song is the "come-back" of oasis.
22? taking the piss, obviously all the voters never heard this one
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"
Not even in top twenty, definitely should be top ten, top five, master plan should be third after wonder wall and don't look back in anger
Best on in my opinion
One of their later songs, decent I guess - NairnC1704V 8 Comments
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...
Reaching just a little over 9 minutes long, this is truly an epic masterpiece of a track. In the beginning it might sound like any other oasis song but as it gradually builds up the song just explodes. Do yourself a favor and check it out if you haven't already. In fact if you have the time, you might as well listen to the whole Be Here Now album. I believe it contains the best material oasis has ever wrote to date.
It's the best because it's the bestV 9 Comments
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
It's so strange.. I consider myself a huge Oasis fan and know all 140+ songs inside out and love every single one but Layla would be in the bottom 10 for me. It just a bit winding and I mis the flow in it.. I never understood why that song became so popular. I just don't hear it :-(
This Should be in TOP 5, This song is VERY GREAT, My favourite and the best oasis songs ever, this is not Right
So emotionalV 6 Comments
WAY TO Much, this song is too good
I don't know why this song is so down the pecking order. It's too good
Should be in top 10.
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.
What is this doing down here? Give a vote people, amazing song!
It concerns me that one of the best Oasis songs of all time is sitting at the #37 spot. Obviously there aren't many true Oasis fans visiting this page. Just a bunch of people who heard Wonderwall and Don't Look Back In Anger a few times on the radio.
Possibly the best lyrics that Noel has ever written. Good Vocals. The rhythm guitar, while simple, is very relaxing and the lead is simply beautiful. The atmosphere that this song creates is unlike any other song by Oasis.V 12 Comments
So Beatles-y, I love it.
Foaming love this x
Show this to any lyricist and say that's how it's done
She's in a family full of eccentrics
She done things I never expected
And I need more time
She's got a sister
And god only knows how I've missed her
On the palm of her hand is a blister
And I need more time
And I want you to know
I've got my mind made up now
But I need more time
And I want you to say
Do you know what I'm saying?
But I need more...
because I'll be you and you'll be me
There's lots and lots for us to see
There's lots and lots for us to do
She is electric, can I be electric too?
She's got a brother
We don't get on with one another
But I quite fancy her mother
And I think that she likes me
She's got a cousin
In fact she's got 'bout a dozen
She's got one in the oven
But it's nothing to do with me
And I want you to know
I've got my mind made up now
But I need more time
And I want you to say
Do you know what I'm saying?
But I need more...
because I'll be ...more
Such a lovely song! Can't stop listening to it! Stuck in my head from months...
Come on people..
It's a great song, really touching and it deservers to be on higher place.
This is the song of my soul it should have been number 2!
Hey not fair place for that one, keep voting guysV 6 Comments
Best lyrics of any of their songs.
How this is so low down is beyond me. From the opening guitar to the chorus it's simply amazing, and Liam's voice makes the song what it is.
It was good enough that I wanted to learn it on guitar, and I'm not much of an Oasis fanboy.
It is long but actually a really good song, couldve just done with being 2-3 minutes of crap taken out. Same cords as wonderwall funny enough. But a highly underrated song, just be here now was seen as crapV 9 Comments
Easily one of their best songs, so underrated yet so damn good, this song deserves to be in the top 5... It also brings back good memories from playing FIFA 06.
Are you kidding with me. This song should be in the top 5. Just listen it once if you don't believe in me
One of the best songs. Listened to it when I was small. Now I feel good listening to it!
This song is so great that I can't explainV 3 Comments
This song is just pure Oasis magic.
Plain old English life summed up in one song
Simple yet so addicting
This song us amazing!
"You're the outcast, you're the underclass, but you don't care, because you're living fast"
Defiance, follow your own path. What a rocking song this is!
Great instrumental, such a good tune
Awesome guitar on this tune
Its in my top 10V 1 Comment
The guitar riff and the samples make for a perfect combination of Oasis magic.V 1 Comment
Difficult to believe, why THE MOST POPULAR ROCK N ROLL SONG in mid 90's placed in number 42. It's probably should be placed in top 10 at least. Maybe those poeple never know how wonderful this song when singed by Liam
You gotta roll with it, you gotta take your time, you gotta say what you say don't let anybody get in your way!
Wow 78? I can't believe my eyes one of The greatest song of 90's
75? Least in the top 20V 5 Comments
This song is so, just, throw whatever you can think of on a paper, and then bam, you've got a major hit in my mind
Wow have you heard the acoustic version it's awesome
Such a great song
Don't know why this song doesn't get the credit it deserves, to me this is on par with Wonderwall, Don't Look Back In Anger and Live Forever
a hidden gem from whats the story morning glory. fabulous!
Extremely underrated song, definitely one of the best oasis songs should be in top 10 at least
One of the greatest oasis songs written, it should be at least top 10V 5 Comments
Awesome song... Can't stop humming it... Can't get out of head and life.. For the ones you love definitely the best song
Talking to the Songbird Yesterday... Short and Simple yet AMAZING
Simple and beatiful! "never felt this love from anyone" gives me two minutes of peace of mind
An ultimate folk love felling!..
A true secret love!...
This is the best Oasis song! Hands down! Besides Supersonic this is Noels favorite Oasis song, that sums it all up.
This Music Is Quite amazing, should made at least at the 15# bests
Not even top 20? You kidding me? This is one of Noel's favorite songs!
This is ought to be at 1, best oasis song ever. Ultra goosebumps!
How is this missing from the list.This is one of their most popular songs.Please include this...
It's an anthem that inspires. So good, too low. It was even a B side!
Wow, this one is great! Come on people!
Any other band would have had this as a lead single. Oasis release it as a Bside. It's perfect on so many levels. Yes, Liam's voice is now shot, but listen to this and you will know what the fuss was all about. I blast this to myself in the car every morning. It makes be behave better in crap traffic.
Absolutely brilliant - yet another classic Oasis song hidden away as a be side. Time for a boxed set of non album tracks.
How can you not love this song? It got almost a haunting quality to the background music. Liams voice is top notch and the lyrics represent what they Gallaghers really thought of each other back in 2000V 2 Comments
This a very very good song! It has been in my mind for a long time!
It has to be in the Top Ten. Best B-side ever.
Digsys dinner, what can I say, extremely under rated, always a fan favourite. Just an all round amazing tune. Makes no sense, has no point and that's why it's so good. GIVE THIS A LISTEN!
I absolutely love this song for Liam shouting out LASAAAGNEE.
I love this song so much! Without this song I wouldn't have gotten into Oasis but this blew my mind. I cannot explain it but it's so underrated and if you've never heard it because it's only on the vinyl version of definitely maybe just go out and listen to it before you vote
This is song is brilliant... Certainly should be higher up in the list!
