[Disclaimer: I am not a musician. I can sing. I remember most of the recital piece I played on the piano when I was 6. But I’m not a musician. I know what I like and what I don’t like and what will likely be the soundtrack when I arrive in hell.]

o | oasis

Siblings who can’t get along? I can relate to that…

My kids know I’m doing this challenge. [You should hear some of their suggestions for the ‘bitchfest’ portion.] And they ask me who I’m using for music. When they asked about O, I told them… Oasis.

I don’t know who that is.

Yes, you do.

And I played Wonderwall… and they knew exactly who I was talking about and they thought it was a great choice. [Thanks for the approval, kids.] That says something about Oasis, doesn’t it? Over 20 years later and the kids know it… and like it.

I thought about posting Wonderwall but everyone knows that song. [And I just linked it…] Of course, everyone probably knows this song, too…

Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don’t you know you might find
A better place to play?
You said that you’d never been
But all the things that you’ve seen
They slowly fade away

So I’ll start a revolution from my bed
‘Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, summertime’s in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
You ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out

And so, Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late as we’re walking on by
Her soul slides away
But don’t look back in anger
I heard you say

Take me to the place where you go
Where nobody knows if it’s night or day
But please don’t put your life in the hands
Of a Rock ‘n’ Roll band
Who’ll throw it all away

I’m gonna start a revolution from my bed
Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, ’cause summertime’s in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
Cause you ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out

[…]
Don’t look back in anger
I heard you say
At least not today

wave
song of the day

    They were pretty amazing. And yeah… 20 years! Wow, that’s unbelievable. Noel Gallagher’s still performing at least. The High Flying Birds were in Philly last fall, forget why we didn’t go. But they are pretty good – the same sort of sound.
