Stop the clocks?! erm... isnt that a song,
This review is from: Stop the Clocks (Audio CD)
Well with best ofs there's always gonna be a debate about songlists from hardcore fans. I feel oasis havent done too bad. Most the tracks i agree with. But why Go let It Out and no Whatever. You could pick at it all day. The problem is with Oasis they have too many great tunes. For quality you cant argue with this album its the best best of that you could possibly get from a band in the last 30 years. If you havent got Defintely Maybe, Morning Glory and The Masterplan. buy this album!!!
I just wish they'd release a compliation just from the 90's cos the last three albums dont comapre to the first three.

It's a poem written by W.H. Auden that was read at the Funeral in 'Four Weddings & a Funeral':
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good."
It was also in GCSE English (when I did it 12 years ago) & yes, W.H. Auden was homosexual.
