Greatest Songs

Live Forever is a song by the English band Oasis. It was composed by Noel Gallagher and has been hailed by many as one of the greatest songs ever.

The lyrics are full of attitude and optimism with the refrain ''you and I are gonna live forever'' being almost angelic in its delivery by the brash and then youthful Liam Gallagher.

The song touches the listener's soul, prompting him/her to not settle for their lot in life as shown in the following lyric:

"Maybe I will never be, all the things that I want to be

Now is not the time to cry, now's the time to find out why"

Though thought of by many fans as being an ode to Noel's mother, Peggy, themes of childhood friendship are also prevalent. This line of thought is illustrated in the line, ''we'll see things they never see'', that while being brief nevertheless is apt in creating visions of nostalgia.

Of course, for a song to be thought of as peerless, the melody must be something special. The simplistic chord structure of Live Forever with a minor pre-chorus, allow a vast range to be explored with a minimum application of musical notes. And without doubt the ascending and descending sequences are wonderfully crafted.

The accompaniment to this tune, following the mystical drum intro, is that which is typical for a rock band with snarling rhythm,lead and bass guitars dominating throughout.

The video for Live Forever in itself is worthy of legendary status, with its iconic clips of Liam Gallagher sitting on a chair, several feet off the ground, attached to a wall blaring out the first chorus to Noel Gallagher beginning to play the guitar solo on the footsteps of an Ancient Greek-like Temple

With these credentials, Live Forever is indeed the greatest song to have ever penetrated our ear-drums and minds.

Men at work: Land down under!!!! (One of their best songs!!)
