Oasis – TOP21-songs: 5 – Live ForeverOasis – TOP21-biisit: 5 – Live Forever

From the album Definitely Maybe (1994).

Because Nirvana said “I Hate Myself and I Wanna Die” Noel countered with Live Forever. This is a great example of what separated Oasis from many of it’s coevals. Live Forever’s lyric is a masterpiece.

The drum beat starting the song off has became quite a trademark and the song in it’s entity is pretty dramatic especially considering that it recycles the same chord progression excluding the outro. Noel gets to solo in his own manner and note selections.

There’s no need to write a lot about this song. Some pieces speak for themselves.

Maybe I will never be
All the things that I want to be
But now is not the time to cry
Now’s the time to find out why
I think you’re the same as me
We see things they’ll never see
You and I are gonna live forever”

Albumilta Definitely Maybe (1994).

Kun kerran Nirvanalla oli “I Hate Myself and I Wanna Die”, niin Noel iski vastaiskuksi Live Foreverin. Aika merkittävä ero siinä, mikä erotti Oasiksen monista aikalaisistaan… Teksti on täyttä helmeä.

Alun rumpukompista on muodostunut melkoinen trademark, ja koko biisi on aika dramaattinen ottaen huomioon, että periaatteessa se kierrättää samaa sointukiertoa outroa lukuun ottamatta. Noel pääsee sooloilemaan tyylilleen ominaisen melodisesti.

Eipä tästä ihmeitä tarvitse kirjoittaa. Jotkin laulut puhuvat puolestaan.

Maybe I will never be
All the things that I want to be
But now is not the time to cry
Now’s the time to find out why
I think you’re the same as me
We see things they’ll never see
You and I are gonna live forever”
