#24 – Oasis – “Slide Away” – (1994)

Yes, Oasis had bigger hits in the 90s, but we featured most of them during our big Top 200 of the 90s countdown. Plus, I love this song. So here it sits. It is from their debut album, Definitely Maybe and has all of the classic trademarks of an Oasis rock song: great lyrics written by Noel, throat-wrenching vocals delivered by Liam, and kickass music all around. Oh, and there was an argument while recording. This was never an official single but it is among the best songs they ever did. When “slide in baby together we’ll fly” is delivered, the song takes on an awesome groove and that is the part of the song that seals it for me. Take a listen and tell me if you disagree.
