A grower ! Oasis are back
on 30 March 2005
With the song recently played on Polish radio (?) and now everyone playing the same clip the eagerly awaited comeback single Lyla is being sung by Oasis fans everywhere.
The single is a 'grower' though and I think it doesnt have the same immediate impact as other previous first tracks from new albums (DYKWIM, Go Let it Out and Hindu Times).
The first 15 seconds really do sound like the Stones 'Street Fightin' Man' which Oasis covered on a b side previously.
The chorus "Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Lyla, the stars are about to fall, so what d'ya say Lylaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" however is very catchy and after a few plays you'll be tapping your foot for sure and singing along with it.
Probably not the greatest comeback single by Oasis but the song will grow on you for sure and I think the best is yet to come on this album
