On This Day In Oasis History...


'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' is a song by Oasis. It was released as the second single from Heathen Chemistry on 17 June 2002, peaking at number two in the UK charts. It went silver in the UK.

The song is an "epic weepy" anthem in the spirit of "Don't Look Back in Anger", reassuringly advising that in times of hardship, simply get over it and get on with your life. Noel Gallagher explained the song saying "A friend of mine was going through a pretty bad time and I sort of wrote it with him in mind."

Noel Gallagher had great expectations for the song, saying "I hope it does for us what 'Don't Look Back In Anger' did... I didn't want it as a single because I thought we'd done all that before, but everyone's going, 'You're fucking mad.'". NME said, 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' [is where] you really start rolling out the red carpet. A return to the long lost humanism of 'Don't Look Back In Anger', it's a reminder of Noel's knack of cheering up his audience just when they need it most." Q magazine held up the song as proof that "genius never completely left Oasis".




















"Stop Crying Your Heart Out" was one of the songs played during the end credits of the movie, The Butterfly Effect, starring Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart. It has been on the TV show Smallville too. The song also appeared after England's defeats in the 2002 Football World Cup and the 2006-07 Ashes. Noel Gallagher dedicated it to the English football team before playing it at the 2004 Glastonbury Festival. The song is also featured in the film Made of Honor, Starring Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan and appears towards the end of the film.

This blog and my Oasis site is named after the song.

Sally-Ann Wilkinson, director of Wild in Art, said: ‘It’s incredibly exciting that Liam Gallagher is part of Bee in the City, in true rock 'n' roll star style adding the finishing touches to his bee back stage at Manchester's Parklife (or Parkalife, I should say!).

The trail, named Bee in the City, also features designs inspired by other Manchester legends such as MCFC Bee, Hac’Bee’Enda, I Wanna Bee Adored and many more.

At the end of the summer-long event, the Bees will be auctioned off to raise money for the Lord Mayor's We Love Manchester charity. which works to improve the lives and life chances of people in Manchester.

The event is organised by Wild in Art, in partnership with Manchester City Council, and is part of the city’s official recovery strategy.

Travis' Fran Healy On How He Once Made Liam Gallagher Cry


Travis frontman Fran Healy has talked about how he once made Liam Gallagher cry.

Travis were performing at London’s Royal Festival Hall yesterday, when Fran Healy spoke how their track 'Luv' once brought Liam to tears while they were on the road in the ’90s.

“We supported Oasis on the ‘Be Here Now’ Tour in 1997, and it was like supporting The Rolling Stones they were so big back then,” Healy told the crowd, introducing their track ‘Luv’.

“I was walking backstage and Liam Gallagher was sat there in his round shades and he goes, ‘You come here’. So I went over and he goes, ‘Play me a song’. I was really nervous and I just picked up my guitar and started playing this next song. I couldn’t even look at him I was so nervous. When I finished playing the song I looked up and there were tears streaming down his face.”

Liam Gallagher On His Next Album, His Documentary, Richard Ashcroft And More


The legend sat down with Sam and Amy to talk a new album in the works, a potential "Part 2" of the Supersonic documentary, and his surprising binge-watch reality TV show.

On This Day In Oasis History...


"Shakermaker" is a song by British rock group Oasis, written by their lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. First appearing as a single, released on the 13th June 1994, which peaked at number 11 in the UK charts, it was later released on Oasis' groundbreaking debut album Definitely Maybe. It was also the first song performed by the band on the UK's world famous music program, Top Of The Pops.

Gallagher admits the lyrics are taken from the world around him, for example, a Shaker Maker was a popular toy in the 1970s, the character of "Mr Soft" was taken from a Trebour Soft Mints commercial, which featured Cockney Rebel's song "Mr Soft", "Mr. Clean" is a song by The Jam, one of Gallagher's favourite bands, "Mr Benn" is a British children's cartoon and the entire last verse - Mr Sifter sold me songs/When I was just 16/Now he stops at traffic lights/But only when they're green - was written in a taxi on the way to the recording studio to record the song. Apparently, Liam Gallagher was pestering Noel to finish the song. At this point, the taxi stopped at the traffic lights outside 'Sifter's"' (a record shop in Burnage, Manchester). Noel penned the lyric and it became part of the song. Noel used to frequent the store to buy old records before Oasis started releasing albums and Mr Sifter refers to the owner of the record store.

Gem Archer to Q in April 2000 on his favourite Oasis songs to play live.

"Shakermaker. It's bang on. I've always thought that was a really good attitude, rip off the Coca-Cola song and have it large. It's cheeky psychedelia. And Champagne Supernova. We all go "Tune!"

On the back of Oasis' 'Shakermaker' single everything appears to be normal.

On the front you can see @Microdot66 hand pressing play on an stereo with an Oasis cassette inside. The concept was that when the music came out of the speakers it melted all the objects in the room.
