BIG BLASTS FROM THE PAST – 5 Stunning Singles Turning 25 In 2021

1. A Design For Life by MANIC STREET PREACHERS

One word: EPIC!

We don’t talk about love
We only wanna get drunk
And we are not allowed to spend
As we are told that this is the end

2. Don’t Look Back In Anger by OASIS

Shivers down your spine, and when thousands
sing along it’s a flabbergasting experience…

And so Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late
As we’re walking on by
Her soul slides away
But don’t look back in anger
I heard you say

3. You’re Gorgeous by BABYBIRD

Not really the love song many thought it was. Anyway
a titanic tune, I and many lovers, never get tired of…

Because you’re gorgeous
I’d do anything for you
Because you’re gorgeous
I know you’ll get me through

4. Firestarter by THE PRODIGY

Inflammable techno stormer. Rest in peace, Keith Flint

I’m the trouble starter, punkin’ instigator
I’m the fear addicted, a danger illustrated
I’m a firestarter, twisted firestarter
You’re a firestarter, twisted firestarter
I’m a firestarter, twisted firestarter

5. Devils Haircut by BECK

Not a loser at all…

Somethin’s wrong cause my mind is fading,
And everywhere I look there’s a dead end waiting,
Temperature’s dropping at the rotten oasis
Stealing kisses from the leprous faces

Got a devil’s haircut in my mind

1 Billion Spotify Streams For OASIS Hit WONDERWALL

16 October 2020

Spotify announced that WONDERWALL, the mega hit that paved the way for OASIS
passed the insane number of 1 billion streams. Seems pretty surreal, if you ask me.

Maybe Noel Gallagher can afford it now to buy a pack of mouth masks with the royalties. Oh, I forgot, he’s too cool to wear them. Great musician but a silly dickhead of a rock star talking more and more bollocks as he grows older while Liam talks more sense than ever, these days. Weird evolution, right?

Anyway here’s that classic, turning 25 on 30th October…

Blockbuster ‘(WHAT’S THE STORY) MORNING GLORY?’ By Wonderwall Legends OASIS Is 25 Today

2 October 2020

Band: OASIS (Manchester)
Album: (WHAT’S THE STORY) MORNING GLORY? – second LP
Released: 2 October 1995 – 25 years ago today

AllMusic/Stephen Erlewine: “If ‘Definitely Maybe’ was an unintentional concept album
about wanting to be a rock & roll star, (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? is what happens after the dreams come true. Oasis turns in a relatively introspective second record, filled with big, gorgeous ballads instead of ripping rockers… Gallagher’s lyrics work best in fragments, where the images catch in your mind and grow, thanks to the music. Gallagher may be guilty of some borrowing, or even plagiarism, but he uses the familiar riffs as building blocks. This is where his genius lies: He’s a thief and doesn’t have many original thoughts, but as a pop/rock melodicist he’s pretty much without peer.”
Full review here. Score: 5/5.

Noel Gallagher: “Those songs are just a privilege to be a part of. It’s like when you do great gigs, you come off stage and say well it was a privilege to be at that gig, regardless of my part
in it. “Those ones like ‘Wonderwall’, ‘Don’t Look Back’ and ‘Champagne Supernova’ when I play them sometimes I think ‘wow it is a privilege to be a part of this’.”

Liam Gallagher: “Without that voice he’d still be ironing Clint boons knickers.”
A reference to Noel’s past as a roadie for Inspiral Carpets. Read the full
angry Liam story here.

Turn Up The Volume: “The album with the two titanic songs – ‘Wonderwall’
and ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ – that made the Gallagher bros immortal.”
