Oasis - Singles (Definitley Maybe & Be Here Now)

Love or hate these guys, maybe their pretense and egos outweigh their substance ( one must forgive them…they’re English) they write great songs sung with passion and abandonment. Following in the footsteps of their idols The Beatles, Oasis became a phenomenon in their home country in the 1990s. Taking the Fabs' template as a model, they added a thick wall of Pete Townshend-influenced guitars and stood at the vanguard of the mid-'90s Britpop movement, inspiring scores of imitators. While guitarist/songwriter/leader Noel Gallagher is responsible for penning several instant-classic pop songs, the press often focuses on the extra-musical hijacks and squabbles of he and his younger brother and Oasis lead singer, Liam. The constantly feuding brothers have threatened to split countless times (usually after one of Liam's public outbursts), but somehow they've hung together and kept things going against all odds.

Two files 7 singles, Definitley Maybe ( Cigarettes & Alcohol, Live Forever, Whatever, Supersonic) and Be Here Now (All Around The World, D'You Know What I Mean, Stand By Me) a Beatles and Stones song on the B sides.
