5.0 out of 5 stars A Grand Anthem 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase
When Oasis released this single they were riding high in the charts from the success of their first two albums and the highly anticipated third album Be Here Now on which this track appeared. They were at the peak of their Britpop fame and entitled to produce huge sounding like productions that only the biggest acts at the time can safely release without sounding big-headed. It is fitting that the official live version of this powerful track appears on 'Familiar to Millions' since that is exactly what it is. Looking back from 1997 to today, it has with-stood the test of time as a classic example of the sort of slow powerful heavy-sounding ballad beloved of modern pop music. This is despite its writer continually dissing the Be Here Now album as a bloated work of self-indulgence inspired by taking too many drugs due to their fame & fortune - the balance between producing a massive track of a song and sliding into self-indulgence will always be a fine line for any big act of the moment, but in this track it seems Oasis managed to stay back from the creative abyss. I suspect that Noel Gallagher is secretly pretty pleased with writing this song himself. It has the usual Noel Gallagher references to older well-known songs - the title is a 1975 John Lennon rock 'n' roll cover, the music is reminiscent of Bowie's All the Young Dudes (as Noel has admitted - 'but I changed the chords enough'), but it would be unfair to describe the track as derivative in content, although the style is nothing ground-breaking. The lyrics are simple and effective, the music catchy and infective, a triumphant piece of grand pop that only missed being a UK #1 thanks to Elton John's re-hash of Candle in the Wind as a Diana tribute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 19 Nov 2003
By C. M. Hollis - Published on Amazon.com
This is just a brilliant, fantastic, great, awsome and marvellous song. I've run out of superlatives to throw at this Oasis tune, my second best from them behind Champagne Supernova (and that is a amazing song). I just love this band. If you've never heard this song before than you are missing a gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars a terrific CD single--Oasis' seemingly magic touch is on full display here 9 Aug 2005
By Missing Person - Published on Amazon.com
Oasis were already legendary by this time for their terrific non-LP b-sides, and by all means, the trend continued with the "Stand By Me" UK CD single. In addition to the great title track, you get 3 additional tracks, all of which are terrific songs written by Noel Gallagher, and of these, only "Going Nowhere" appears on the b-sides compilation "The Masterplan". The rocker "(I Got) The Fever", which somewhat recalls the Happy Mondays' "Kinky Afro", has jangly guitars, a bluesy guitar riff, and neatly switches from minor-keyed verses to a major-keyed chorus. The religion-themed "My Sister Lover" does have noticeably weak and surprisingly simplistic lyrics, but despite this, it's an irresisible rocker with an absolutely larger-than-life sound, with an ultra-distorted fuzzy lead guitar tone from Noel, and superb harmony on the chorus. The disc closes with the breezy, wistful ballad "Going Nowhere" which recalls Burt Bacharach with its electric piano and horn arrangement. For any genuine Oasis fan, this single ranks as a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hard rock single..... exciting¡¡¡ 20 May 1999
By Francisco J. Zamarripa - Published on Amazon.com
The song "Stand by me" is just very good and has romantic, heart touching lyrics. This songs talks about someone you should care about, and the message just gets to your heart. A single that rocks¡¡¡. The songs are just great, the last one is a noel acoustic song that inspires people to make true the dreams they have, it has positive lyrics that makes you fight for a dream.... a must have for any "hard" fan of OASIS
