#94 -- Going Nowhere

Album: The Masterplan

Noel often praises Burt Bacharach, in fact, his picture is slightly in frame on the Definitely Maybe cover. The opening of this song reminds me a lot of his style, possibly a Vegas lounge, or possibly playing in the background whist you’re doing some shopping. I personally don’t care for those types of songs, and don’t think they’re really Oasis-sounding. The lyrics are wonderful though, and are a nice insight into how Noel felt before Oasis ever “arrived.” He’s said to have written this before the band ever got a record deal, but not recorded it until sometime after, and it speaks to all the things he was hoping to do with the fame and money.
