Video of Day: Oasis

On another cool night here in NYC as USC predictably blows the doors off another overrated Big 10 BCS pretender Ohio State (it’s 35-3), I felt like one of my favorite Oasis songs all day. I like Oasis. They’re a cool British band with that funky sound which draws ya to them.

They have a few songs I like including “Wonderwall,” “Don’t Look Back In Anger,” and “Morning Glory.” Tonight, I felt like taking a look at perhaps their best song, “Champagne Supernova.” You watch this video listening to the words becoming mesmerized by it. There’s the trippy background which I wouldn’t mind being lost in along with those cool wateresque special effects. And what’s not to love about that?

There’s the stylish clothes along with cool lighting while they play where I wish I could sometimes go because it’d be so much better. So much more alive than the bland alternative. We all long for it which is why music acts as our outlet. A place where we can get away from all the utter bullshit out there. And believe me. There’s a lot of it.

This song gives me that feeling that not everything’s quite as bad as it might seem. There are people worse off who are really struggling compared to myself. Though at times I feel defeated. Maybe that’s why I write. Cause it gives me that independent freedom away from everything.

So, take a look at this video and listen to the wonderful words and get lost in it taking you to a better place. Cause really, we all can use that.

Oasis: “Champagne Supernova

listen to the squeaking of the guitar as they come near its epic conclusion. a perfect blend of instruments along with lead singer Liam Gallagher’s words, “We were getting high.” enjoy it because it’s got that great sound and makes for the perfect ending to a great rock n’ roll song. That’s how they’re all supposed to be.

How many special people change?
How many lives are living strange?
Where were you while we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball
Where were you while we were getting high?

Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova in the sky

Great lyrics. :-)
