Sugaroaf: Don't Call Us

"Listen kid, you pay for the call, you ain't bad, but we've heard it all before. Yeah, it sounds like John, Paul and George.

There's plenty of Beatles references in Oasis lyrics, here are some I know off the top of my head:

'The Fool On The Hill and I Feel Fine' lyric from 'D'You Know What I Mean?'.

The song 'Wonderwall' taken from George's Wonderwall Music.

Noel recites Octopus's Garden at the end of 'The Masterplan' ('I'd like to be under the sea)

'Don't Look Back in Anger' features the lyric 'gonna start a revolution from my bed', reference to John and Yoko's bed ins.

The song 'Be Here Now' features the lyric 'sing a song for me, one from Let it Be'.

The song 'The Shock of the Lightning' mentions 'Magical Mystery Tour'.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Green Day- 21st Century Breakdown

I never made it as a working class hero.

 

Queen- Life is Real (song for Lennon)- as you can probably tell from the title, the whole song is essentially about John. It also begins with a bell like (Just Like) Starting Over.

 

Not the most complimentary, but The Clash- London Calling

Don't look to us- phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Gorgeous- Kanye West

I don’t believe in yesterday
and what’s a black beetle anyway, a f-cking roach

 

It is a weird reference, but it's a reference nonetheless.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

I used to think: "And if there is no fool upon the hill" was a Beatles reference in the Pink Floyd song "Brain Damage", but it turned out to just be "And if there is no room upon the hill." Stupid Pink Floyd.

 

Oh, and:

"There's a hole in my head where the rain comes in" from "Evil Woman" by ELO

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

This headline caught my attention in Rolling Stone's newsletter.

Liam Gallagher says Noel is recycling Oasis songs for Solo Debut

 

and the comment of this person made me ROFLMAO

Considering they just recycled a bunch of Beatles songs to begin with, this is nothing new.

 

And to be on topic, I swear to God that the guitar of Fucking in the bushes sounds very Beatle-esque, but I can't really identify which one. (Great tune by Oasis. I prefer them instrumental). a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

 

 

17... a Paul song maybe?? a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Temptations, "Ball of Confusion": "The Beatles' new record's a gas!" (Great single, but an ironic lyric, considering that it was released in May 1970, 11 days before the last new Beatles record ever.)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I know, right? I like Oasis a lot, but I have to say I think I know why...

Lil Wayne has a song called help.  It Samples Help! in the beginning and has the lyrics "I'm from the dirt where the Beatles and John Lennon be at"  paul-mccartney

 

Pink floyd's song "Echoes" has the lyric "Inviting and Inciting Me" (Lyrics from Across The Universe)

 

Billy Joel's We Didn't Start The Firey has "British Beatlemania" in it.

I listened to that, since I already had Youtube up.  Well, I think I can say I've heard better songs...  When it was done I had to listen to the original since it got stuck in my head. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Epic Band Pink Floyd did really made a reference to Their Awesomeness The Beatles in "Let There Be More Light" from their second album (the first that count in my book) "A Saucerful of Secrets":

 

The outer lock rolled slowly back

The servicemen were heard to sigh

For there revealed in flowing robes

Was Lucy in the sky

 

And yes, I hate "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn".

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon
