Don't Look Back In Anger

by Oasis.

and as a bonus, another great song by Oasis, "Champagne Supernova".
It's an Oasis fiesta today.

From the lyrics: "Stand up beside the fireplace / Take that look from off your face" - Peggy Gallagher's (the songwriter's mother) instructions to Noel (the songwriter) when he would have his photograph taken next to the fireplace when he was a child.

This performance is from the MTV Unplugged series. Oasis show was almost canceled when brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher got into an argument in which Liam (Oasis's lead singer) proclaimed Oasis were nothing without him, and wished to prove this by letting Noel (Oasis Main songwriter and guitarist) and the remaining three members perform without him. Noel then took over for vocals and sang for every song during the concert (which didn't affect much on this song because this is usually performed by Noel anyway).

The song has become a favorite at Oasis' live performances. Check out this live performance in Manchester, and if at this point you haven't had enough of "Don't Look Back In Anger", check out the official US video.
