I ran across an Oasis Spotify playlist and I was reminded of …..how fucking good Oasis is. Was. Is? I mean objectively good. Were they ever compared to The Beatles? Not that I would go that far, but their ability to great full, sound-rich mainstream melodies is astounding. I have a particular affinity for the song “Acquiesce”, which was actually supposed to be included on What’s The Story Morning Glory? but held off until the b-sides album. I’m also a sucker for songs with two people on lead. And I actually prefer Noel Gallagher’s voice.
The video is clever, it’s a Japanese fan’s fantasy of being the band. I also have a penchant for music videos in which the band does not appear.
