Oasis – Heroes

Oasis, like Suede, were well known for the quality of their early B-Sides. Therefore, it would have been a no briner to complete one, but someone got there first. Namely, the band themselves when they put out ‘The Masterplan’ in 1998

Unlike Suede, a key member did not leave early on to act as a convenient cut off point for a new collection so I couldn’t replicate the method I used to compile the ‘Sci-Fi Lullabies’ idea from back in February. I therefore took a slightly different angle for this entry as Oasis did sneak a few cover versions on to their B- Sides So here they are compiled, with one live track from the ‘Familiar To Millions’ LP. 

Side A

  1. Street Fighting Man (Rolling Stones) – All Around The World (1998)
  2. Within You, Without You (The Beatles) – BBC Sgt Pepper 40th Anniversary Tribute (2007)
  3. Hey Hey, My My Into The Black (Neil Young) – Familiar To Millions (2000)
  4. My Generation (The Who) – Little By Little (2002)
  5. Cum On Feel The Noize (Slade) – Don;t Look Back In Anger (1996)

Side B

  1. Helter Skelter (The Beatles) – Who Feels Love? (2000)
  2. You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away (The Beatles) – Some Might Say Japanese CD (1995)
  3. Heroes (David Bowie) – D’You Know What I Mean? (1997)
  4. I Am The Walrus (The Beatles) – Cigarettes & Alcohol (1994)

Bonus 12”

This includes their cover of the classic Slade Christmas song. The second side is a BBC interview with Noel Gallagher talking about the recording process for Within’ You, Without You. 

A. Merry Christmas Everyone

B. Within You, Without You (Recording Process) 

‘Heroes’ is not only one of the covers on here, it serves as a pretty apt title because these songs come from artists that inspired Noel Gallagher. The cover comes from imgur user LisaBerglund.
