In the car, listening to the Oasis J-File.
Hi, this is Peter from Perth and I was wondering if you could play Some Might Say. I always said loved rock'n'roll but before Oasis I could never say I had a favourite band. They really got me through my university days, man. And this song is one of the greatest rock songs of all time. The guitars just go right through you like a chainsaw for days afterwards…
"This song is not one of the greatest rock songs of all time."
"I agree. The guitars aren't going right through me like a chainsaw. A butter knife at the very most."
"I never was an Oasis fan."
"Well Definitely Maybe was a good album."
"I liked What's The Story Morning Glory. But then the Mothership started saying 'What's the story, morning glory?' instead of 'So what's new?' on the phone because she thought it was cool and it really wasn't bloody cool at all."
"My big problem with Oasis is that Noel Gallagher is too freaking lazy to write a second verse. Every bloody song, he trots out a nice opener then it's second verse, same as the first! Like Wonderwall. Todaaaay's gonna be the day… and then a chorus later, todaaaay's still gonna be the freaking day!"
"Now that's just sheer laziness!"
"I know! I've got half a novel sitting beside my bed, and if I was to apply the Noel Gallagher Theory of Writing I should say to myself, 'No need to write the other half! I'll just photocopy this and add it to the pile and send it to the publisher and voila!'"
