Surely it'll be all the artists that had stuff booked for this year that was cancelled that'll be doing the first gigs

Hello is such the perfect Oasis opener.

WE LIVE IN THE SHADOWS

Every other track on the album has been played to death and I’m no longer arsed about. The exception of course being HEY NOW

Hello is a top 5 Oasis song for me. Still sounds so fresh and energetic and full of pure spirit.

actually, i would say Hello is *the* purest distillation of what made Oasis briefly genius. Shameless, huge barreling verses leading to a chorus reclamation from the Gods, no pretence, broadbrushlyrics that ring universally true without trying too hard, a spark of inspiration from Noel that would nevertheless sound mundane and silly if he put his bullshit vocals on it, but elevated 10000x by a Liam vocal that leaves everything on the field and nothing for itself. still charges me up to this day. and it's a fucking gary glitter tune ffs. Genius. Utter genius.

and the there & then version is basically a pivotal moment in my life tbh.

The actual genius is you could say that of ~40 Oasis songs in a span of 2-3 years

i just got cunted in the bastard so hard in the nostalgias i wasn't ready for it just now. the falling in love with oasis days were so pure and invigorating. and i didn't start on that til early 97 (i think), must have been the biggest buzz 93/94 to see them ffs.

Me too. It was really the video for d'you know what I mean that made me go what is THIS? One of my great regrets is not seeing them during the bonehead/guigsy years, but realistically my only shot would have been when they played Canada in early 98, and the show in montreal was cancelled due to an ice storm, so i never really had a shot.

WTSMG is really my least favourite of the early three albums, but that's mainly because i had the other two first, and knew the singles/videos from being overplayed and was tired of them before i even had the album.

I've been running to the back half of the record, Morning Glory gives you that extra boost.

Gee, Noel looks terrible in that Rockfield video.

The only new info (to me) was that the snippet of Wonderwall at the start of Hello isn't taken from the proper track, it was recorded outside, with bird noises (?) audible.
