2 Wonderwall 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

A combination of music that is destined to bring you all these bittersweet memories back and lyrics that do make sense although they should not. one of the most beautiful ballads ever written

3 Live Forever 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 ...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

Best lyrics of the 90s
Middle finger to grunge n all

4 Champagne Supernova Champagne Supernova

champagne supernova is the best song for me, this song has the best lyrics and the song is very very good

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

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.

My favorite song of all time, period. no other song means more to me then this in my lifetime. to all my ex's and people from my past: someday you will find me. how many special people change?

5 Supersonic Supersonic

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.

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..

That one guitar part!

6 Slide Away Slide 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. 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.

good song

7 Whatever Whatever

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.

Easy the best song oasis have ever recorded, it's one of the best songs ever in my opinion

8 Stop Crying Your Heart Out Stop 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.

This is an amazing song and should be in the top 3. It makes me sad every time I hear it. Liam's voice is pure magic.

9 The Masterplan The 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!

Probably the best B side of all time. Noel is excellent on this track, in both of his talents. Nice music video as well!

10 Some Might Say Some Might Say

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.

A killer rock song - this needs to be higher.

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

Great song!
Should be in top 10.

The Contenders

11 Morning Glory Morning Glory

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

Need a little time to wake and move this high up on the list!

One of the most powerful songs of last 3 decades!

Whats the story morning glory
Weell
You need a little time to wake up wake up!
Great song! My favourite one its glorious!
All your dreams are made
When you're chained to the mirror and the razor blade
Today's the day that all the world will see

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.

We believe in one another!
Damn Really love this one!

13 Stand by Me Stand 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

It is quite franckly a package deal : the most brilliant video I've ever seen with a great moral about the appearences. The guitar riff is just amazing, it transcends you to another universe! And the lyrics are amazing because they are not mainstream at all but spontaneous "Made a meal and threw it up on sunday" Brilliant!

14 Don't Go Away Don'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.

This is so beautiful. It definitely deserves the top spot.

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.

Shows how ordinary oasis were in the lyrics despite being played like no other can

Best oasis song

Little by little...After that you can add anything that criples you...and the pain becomes profound and magical.

19 The Importance of Being Idle The Importance of Being Idle

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

Um this is the greatest oasis song? It justifies the time I waste and is an anthem for all young people out there!

Everything about this song is perfect!

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

Best song ever
