Most Oasis sounding Blur song?

Post by UnderThePuritan » 15 Jan 2020, 17:06

Are there any Blur songs you think sounds like an Oasis song? Or vice versa?

Don't think I've seen this topic discussed before :lol:

The start of Movin On always reminded me of Oasis, the backing vocals and distorted vocals.

There's a live performance of Bugman in the far east (not sure which country) where Damon goes full on liam gallagher as well.

But largerly the music is too clever to be compared to Oasis

I've always loved She's Electric because it has a britpop bounce to it.

Blur like Oasis....Bugman?

Yes I agree, I can imagine Damon or Graham singing it :D

Always thought the guitar part to 'She's so high' was a bit like a slowed down version of something Noel would play. Tender is similar to some stuff on the last Oasis album 'Dig out your soul'. Talking purely in terms of style here, not comparing quality of songwriting or anything. Chorus in Bugman is quite snarly in an Oasis way, yeah.

I remember reading a pre-rivalry interview somewhere with Damon saying "She's So High" sounds like an Oasis song.

Oddly I always thought She's So High sounds more like Suede - or rather, Bernard's playing on the first Suede LP sounds sonically v similar to She's So High.

Stereotypes perhaps. I can kind of imagine Liam singing that one. Bang possibly too.

I always thought Oily Water sounded a bit Oasis especially live.

Agree that 'She's So High' could be Suede and that 'Stereotypes' and 'Oily Water' could be Oasis.

Turn It Up definitely sounds like an Oasis song.
If it was an Oasis song, it would be considered a classic, much like She's Electric, particularly as die hard Oasis fans consider their lyrics clever, but such is the standard of blur, its fairly critiqued and even largely dismissed.

mmmm I can see the vocals for Oily Water being Oasis, but not much else.
