Music Monday: Live Forever (Oasis)

Music Monday is the brainchild of Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek.

This week I decided to go for a song that completely changed my musical horizons back when it came out in 1994. I was fifteen and though I had grown up with guitar music, my dad being a massive Stones fan, I had forgone it in favour of pop music until then. Then I heard this song. I loved the drum intro, the guitar and singer Liam’s voice.

And how real is a lyric like ‘maybe you’re the same as me, we see things they’ll never see’ to a  teenager?

I saw Oasis live in early 1995 and I was hooked. They were a different beast from anything else live back then! I quickly left my pop days behind in favour of the Britpop explosion that came after.

Oasis’ first album, Definitely Maybe, will always mean the world to me, and especially this song, because it reminds me so much of my teenage years. Oasis soon became a parody of themselves (undoubtedly mastered by themselves, as they knew so very well that papers sold records in the 1990s) and Liam knackered his voice after a couple of albums and never sounded as anything near as good again,  but I still have a soft spot for Noel Gallagher as a songwriter to this day.

 

 

 

 

One thought on “Music Monday: Live Forever (Oasis)

  1. Loved their songs! Although, I have to admit that if it weren’t for the tv show, “My Mad Fat Diary,” I wouldn’t have heard of Oasis. Right now, I think I still have the lyrics to at least 2 of their songs engrained in my memory. Their songs are catchy. 😂
