#88 -- The Girl in the Dirty Shirt

Album Be Here Now

How many times have I wanted to say “get your shit together girl?” That line is enough to make me a big fan of this song. This song is a great example of the fusion of rock and drunken pub chorus (see Bonehead’s Bank Holiday, below) that Oasis can be unparalleled at. As songs about your girlfriend go (Noel wrote it about Meg), this is about as un-lame as they come. It almost doesn’t fit in Be Here Now – the lyrics make sense, it sounds a little bit like songs on previous albums (Married with Children), and doesn’t overwhelmingly reek of substance abuse.
