Oasis I… It’s not a band, it’s generation!

Kisahnya bermula ketika gw sing along lagunya oasis yang judulnya stop crying your heart out tadi siang di kantor. Waktu menunjukkan pukul 11.45 WIB, itu sudah masuk jam makan siang dan seperti biasa teman-teman pada beranjak dari ruangan HRD menuju kantin. Seperti biasa mbak yang jaga kantin ini seneng banget nyetel musik kenceng-kenceng, dan spontan gw request lagu yang gw sebutin diatas.

… And be on your way and stop crying your heart out…

Lalu si Nadine dengan culunnya tanya, “Mas, lagunya siapa sih?” kemana aja ini bocah… Masa hitsnya oasis gak tahu.

You and i gonna live forever...

Lalu gue jelasin ini salah satu singlenya oasis di album heathen chemistry yang dirilis tahun 2002. Doi cuma bilang, “Ooo…”

Nadine lalu cari lagunya di iTunes lewat iPhone 18s-nya (gue buta tipenya) dan bilang bakalan beli semua albumnya.

Gak terasa sudah hampir jam 12 siang, dan gue siap-siap sholat di mushola. Gue tutup pembicaraan itu dengan kalimat keren… Oasis itu bukan cuma grup band dengan banyak lagu bagus, tapi mereka (oasis) adalah generasi.

Oh iya… Satu poin terakhir, lagu stop crying your heart out dinyanyiin sama suporternya Inggris pas kalah dari Brasil di Fifa World Cup 2002 Korea Jepang lewat tendangan aduhaiii dari Ronaldinho. Lagu ini juga sempat terdengar di film Butterfly Effect.

You and i gonna live forever…

Slide Away (OASIS)

Slide away – and give it all you’ve got
My today – fell in from the top
I dream of you – and all the things you say
I wonder where you are now?

Hold me down – all the world’s asleep
I need you now – you’ve knocked me off my feet
I dream of you – we talk of growing old
But you said please don’t !

Slide in baby – together we’ll fly
I’ve tried praying – and I know just what you’re saying to me

Now that you’re mine
I’ll find a way
Of chasing the sun
Let me be the one that shines with you
In the morning when you don’t know what to do
Two of a kind
We’ll find a way
To do what we’ve done

Let me be the one that shines with you
And we can slide away.

Slide away – and give it all you’ve got
My today – fell in from the top
I dream of you – and all the things you say
I wonder where you are now?

Slide in baby – together we’ll fly
I’ve tried praying – and I know just what you’re saying to me

Now that you’re mine
I’ll find a way
Of chasing the sun
Let me be the one that shines with you
In the morning when you don’t know what to do
Two of a kind We’ll find a way
To do what we’ve done

Let me be the one that shines with you
And we can slide away.

 

Whatever (OASIS)

I’m free to be whatever I
Whatever I choose
And I’ll sing the blues if I want

I’m free to say whatever I
Whatever I like
If it’s wrong or right it’s alright

Always seems to me
You only see what people want you to see
How long’s it gonna be
Before we get on the bus
And cause no fuss
Get a grip on yourself
It don’t cost much

Free to be whatever you
Whatever you say
If it comes my way it’s alright

You’re free to be wherever you
Wherever you please
You can shoot the breeze if you want

It always seems to me
You only see what people want you to see
How long’s it gonna be
Before we get on the bus
And cause no fuss
Get a grip on yourself
It don’t cost much

I’m free to be whatever I
Whatever I choose
And I’ll sing the blues if I want

Here in my mind
You know you might find
Something that you
You thought you once knew
But now it’s all gone
And you know it’s no fun
Yeah I know it’s no fun
Oh I know it’s no fun

I’m free to be whatever I
Whatever I choose
And I’ll sing the blues if I want

I’m free to be whatever I
Whatever I choose
And I’ll sing the blues if I want

Whatever you do
Whatever you say
Yeah I know it’s alright

Whatever you do
Whatever you say
Yeah I know it’s alright

 

Supersonic (OASIS)

I need to be myself
I can’t be no one else
I’m feeling supersonic
Give me gin and tonic
You can have it all but how much do you want it?
You make me laugh
Give me your autograph
Can I ride with you in your BMW ?
You can sail with me in my yellow submarine

You need to find out
‘Cos no one’s gonna tell you what I’m on about
You need to find a way for what you want to say
But before tomorrow

‘Cos my friend said he’d take you home
He sits in a corner all alone
He lives under a waterfall
No body can see him
No body can ever hear him call

You need to be yourself
You can’t be no one else
I know a girl called Elsa
She’s into Alka Seltzer
She sniffs it through a cane on a supersonic train
She made me laugh
I got her autograph
She done it with a doctor on a helicopter
She’s sniffin in her tissue
Sellin’ the Big Issue

She needs to find out
‘Cos no one’s gonna tell you what I’m on about
She needs to find a way for what she wants to say
But before tomorrow

‘Cos my friend said he’d take you home
He sits in a corner all alone
He lives under a waterfall
No body can see him
No body can ever hear him call
