#95 -- Just Getting Older

Album: The Hindu Times (single)

Is this song an acknowledgement of better days’ past for Oasis, or just another introspective ballad? Either way, I think there could have been better choices for the first Hindu Times B-Side. Personally, I find the lyrics a tad depressing (I'm halfway up to the bottom/of another bottle/of my next best favourite friend/am I cracking up/or just getting older?), and an almost inappropriate crash-landing back to Earth after the resounding rock n’ roll high of The Hindu Times. I’m a sucker for Noel ballads though, so I’ll take it squeezed between a great rock song and a far better Noel ballad (it’s gonna be high up on this list too).
