O is for Oasis
I first heard Oasis without knowing who they were, where they were from, what they were about, what they looked like or what kind of music they were associated with, but from the very first song I was hooked.
My music tastes are pretty wide, and I like particular songs rather than particular styles. However, Oasis is a band that pretty much ticks all my boxes – I love the Britpop sound and their lyrics are pure poetry. It’s a bonus that they are “local” lads hailing as they do from Burnage in Manchester and an even bigger bonus is that they are huge City fans too (Manchester City that is!).
It’s funny that the first time I heard their first hit it was the spoof version performed by Mike Myers. Here’s the video of their own version – Wonderwall. Enjoy.
