#97 -- Little James

Album: Standing on the Shoulder of Giants

What lifelong Oasis fan doesn’t have a strong opinion about this song? It’s Liam’s first offering as a songwriter, and a certainly valiant effort. When it comes up in discussion, most fans slag it off, for the most part including myself. It’s hard to find anything wrong with a song written by a dad for his son, though, it sometimes seems like a few of the lines were hastily assembled from an elementary rhyming dictionary. Live for your toys/even though they make noise… sometimes makes me cringe. You have to give Liam props for trying though, and it’s certainly a song that feels like it “belongs” in the middle of SOTSOG. Regardless, Noel should have put his foot down on the drawn-out “na na na” ending – it’s not exactly Hey Jude.

I never play this one. It's a long way from "Little James" to "Songbird."

Good tune hampered by kiddie nursery rhyme lyrics. Liam's songwriting has improved greatly since.

It's better than Songbird, that's about the only good thing there is to say about this sentimental garbage.
