#100 -- Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is

Album: Standing on the Shoulder of Giants

I agree with Noel’s analysis of this song: “We liked the energy in it. But I would have wanted to work more with the lyrics, it´s just the same words being repeated over and over." Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is has great energy, and the kind of opening bars that make you expect something special, but just sort of comes off as an unfinished, gratuitous “lets put another song in this album” track.

That being said, the sound is textbook SOTSOG-era Oasis. Makes you wish Noel had written some really great lyrics. The repetition makes it get overshadowed by the more lyrical and unique tracks on the album, even though it’s more rock ‘n roll than any of them (with the possible exception of I Can See a Liar). That, and the fact that I can’t decide whether the use of the word “yer” exudes a Liam-esque cocky swagger, or just the triteness of some teenager’s instant messenger lingo, puts this one at the bottom of the ladder. But stay tuned, I’m counting them down all the way to number one.
