Best Oasis Songs
The Top Ten
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
I don't know this is there best song but Liam is probably a better singer than NoelV 61 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
An all classicV 63 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
The best song ever written.V 48 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
An amazing song. I really appreciate the atmosphere of this song. Lyrics sound so reflective and are not so clear so that you can imagine they are referring to what you want. It makes me think about the sense of life. In any case Noel sayed it's a song about reincarnation.V 59 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..

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.
Let me be the one, that shines with you and we can slide awayV 23 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.
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.V 21 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.
A masterpiece, what more can I say.V 15 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!
Better than it's A-side that's for sureV 30 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.
I don't get how this just barely gets on the list. This is at least in the top five in my mind.V 13 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!
Best guitar and lyrics for me. This needs to be in the top 3 at least. - Spark_Of_LifeV 4 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.
So catchyV 1 Comment
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
Whoever thinks any other song comes close is stupidV 14 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"
This is so beautiful. It definitely deserves the top spot.V 10 Comments
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 riff at the start is Godlike, and Liams snarling delivery is just something elseV 6 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.
Best song in my opinion. love every bit of it. it at least deserves to be in the top 5 - adamward97V 10 Comments
One of the bests
Probably the best vocals of an oasis track ladies and gentlemen Noel Gallagher.
I wanna talk tonight!
The most beautiful song!V 4 Comments
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
Everything about this song is perfect!V 7 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!
Just a class song, enough said.V 2 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
