Oasis Part 5 British Rock Definitely Maybe

Digsy's Dinner, Slide Away, and Married with Children

Digsy's Dinner
A playful and fun song. Digsy's Dinner features Noel Gallagher poking fun at British band Blur by saying he can do the whole Brit pop thing in his sleep.1  Despite the effortless craftsmanship Digsy's Dinner has some poignant sounding parts;

These could be the best days of our lives but i don't think we've been living very wise. 

 The song is all about the singer's lasagne. Something you wouldn't know unless you read the lyrics of Digsy's Dinner
Musically: Seems like a relatively simple song for a great guitarist. An upbeat song.

Slide Away
I think lead singer Liam Gallagher once said during a concert that Slide Away is for the guys to get chicks. Noel wrote the song about his "soulmate" Louise Jones. He was devastated when they broke up in 1994 saying, "I don't think I'll ever get over it." For sure some of Liam Gallagher's best singing. This is Paul McCartney's favorite song by Oasis. Liam and Oasis, make this Noel Gallagher-penned song brash and flowing. 2

Married With Children
is another fun song. The protagonist criticizes his wife and her musical tastes among many other things. But then says there is no need for her to say she is sorry. The song has a very sarcastic if not accurate portrayal of marriage.  I think Married With Children is a very humorous song, especially to people from the United Kingdom.  And I love the sort of grungy sound to the music.

Musician Bill Watt weighs in on Married with Children: "Reminds me a bit of Octupus' Garden by The Beatles. Kinda reminds me of simpler times like the show with Al Bundy. More specifically like the Andy Griffith show, happy times in the 1960s."
He goes on to describe how the chords are simple. The song does not drag on. 

Conclusion
Oasis blasted out of the gates with a loud and energizing sound throughout their debut album Definitely Maybe. This album challenged social norms in a major way. For this reason it was very punk rock. Put this album on whenever you want to get hyped. Or whenever you are feeling sick and want to feel okay. This is very straightforward rock n roll. Enjoy!
