      Great Oasis songs: Thanks people. : )

      I love many of them however if I had to choose a "favourite" it would have to be this one. (That is popular and for good reason.)

        I have 2500 songs in my station playlist. I was not aware that I had anything by Oasis, but I just noticed that I have a cut named, "Stop Crying Your Heart Out." I just listened to it. It thoroughly sucks and has been permanently removed from my playlist.

        I also have, "Don't Look Back In Anger." I like that cut. Like - not love. :-) It stays.

        P.S. Just added 'Wonderwall.' Unfortunately, all their shit sounds the same.

          Lol. Well the World would be a boring place if we were all the same. More than likely there are many songs you like that I think are garbage.

      That shows what a limited knowledge of music you have. Everything by Oasis reeks of the Beatles circa 1965-67.

      The Beatles themselves had their moments, but were not that great musically. From that era The Stones, The Who, The Kinks and The Yardbirds were far more interesting. During the Beatles early years, Buddy Holly And The Crickets were far more interesting.

      Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - the most over-rated album of all time. Rubber Soul and Revolver are infinitely better albums.

      As far as the cover of Slade's Cum On Feel The Noize in the OP. There have been a multitude of cover versions of that song, none of them as good as the original. The cover of it by Oasis is vastly inferior to all the other cover versions.

        Unfortunately, nothing you have written can be stated as fact, which it appears you have tried to do.

        These are all matter of individual opinion. Even if your opinion is shared by many, it just makes them shared opinion, and nothing remotely resembling fact.

        If you honestly believe that SPLHCB is overrated, I'll be happy to loan you my hash pipe.

          I do actually. It may have meant something at the time, however I grew up in the era after that so its impact had well and truly worn off by then.

            Well, had you been exposed to it at a time when you would have lived through its impact on music and the then current state of society, I don't think you would hold that view. Trust me. That album helped shaped the way of the world, musically, politically and the way it shaped social morays like drug use for a generation, or longer

              Since I grew up in the 70's and missed out on any impact it had kinda proves the impact didn't last "a generation".

              All that aside anyway, it's not that great an album from a musical perspective. Rubber Soul and Revolver were far better musically.

                Again, just an opinion, to which you are certainly entitled, though many would have an opposing view and neither side would be right or wrong, regardless of how strongly either might present their opinion.

                It's art. It's all in the eye or ear of the beholder and no one can dispute that.

                Wrong. You continue to judge things by your exposure to something or its affect on you. There are billions of people on the planet. You can speak for yourself, but not anyone else.

    Just saw a Rolling Stone list: 100 Best Songs of the 2000's.

    Always being in a constant serach for stuff to add to my playlist, these were the only ones that I could stomach. All of these except for #27 and and #35 are already in my playlist. I'm adding #27, grudgingly, as it's not anything to write home to mom about, but not that bad. Adding #35 is just due to an oversight on my part.

    There were other good cuts, like "Hurt" by Johnny Cash, but I'm not encouraging suicide. There was a decent cut by U2, but at 8 minutes, it doesn't meet my radio playlist criteria, and honestly, 8 minutes of anything by Bono is about 4 minutes too many.


    80. Phoenix, '1901'

    77. Dixie Chicks, 'Not Ready to Make Nice'

    72. Kings of Leon, 'Use Somebody'

    68. Coldplay, 'Viva La Vida'

    65. Green Day, 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams'

    64. U2, 'Vertigo'

    57. The Shins, 'New Slang'

    48. The Killers, 'Mr. Brightside'

    39. Modest Mouse, 'Float On'

    35. Bruce Springsteen, 'The Rising'

    34. Coldplay, 'Yellow'

    31. The Flaming Lips, 'Do You Realize??'

    27. The Postal Service, 'Such Great Heights'

    26. Coldplay, 'Clocks'

    9. U2, 'Beautiful Day'

    There was more hip-hop crap than you could shake a stick at, and, I'm sorry, but 'Beautiful' by Christine Aguilera is a nice song - once!

    Oh, there was also an incredibly bad song by Dylan, that I loved, but could never play on my station. You need to be a die hard Dylan lover to not smash your computer if that song came on. lol

    Here is the full list. How much crap can you find???
