Oasis song meaning: Could lost Oasis song signal reunion?

Oasis fans have been desperate to see the band reunite pretty much since it split in 2009. Since then, frontmen Liam and Noel Gallagher have exchanged their fair share of unkind remarks via social media and interviews. However, the announcement of the release of lost song Don’t Stop, could suggest the tide is about to change.

Don’t Stop, a lost song re-released by Noel Gallagher in the early hours of this morning, came as quite a shock to fans.

Many now believe this is a hint the band are getting back together, a whole 11 years since their split.

The shock factor comes from what Noel has previously said on the subject, referring to his own brother Liam as “that fing idiot.”

Noel has even listed other things he would prefer to do than reunite with the band, which include “burning his house down or smashing his car in.”

As well as this, his solo project Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds has been an absolute triumph.

Liam Gallagher has not been too keen on a reunion either, which has been made clear by his response to Noel’ releasing of the song, Don’t Stop.

Given the song has Noel singing the lead vocals, Liam tweeted: “Oi tofu boy if your [sic] gonna release old demos make sure im [sic] singing on it and boneheads playing guitar on it if not it’s not worth a was you were LG x”

Liam has been trying to get a reunion happening for post-lockdown, as a charity fundraiser for the NHS, though he claimed it would take place “with or without” Noel.

The release in itself is a sign the boys will not be reuniting any time soon, but there is further evidence in the lyrics of the song itself.

The song, written in 2009 during the final Oasis tour, shows Noel making clear his feelings about the band and his desire to leave, which he did shortly afterwards.

He sings: “Bye bye my friend I’m leaving, I’m gonna feast on the stars in the sky, And while I be gone don’t stop dreaming, And don’t be sad and don’t cry.”

As well as making his sentiments crystal clear, Noel also seems to be mocking his brother somewhat, though that is a matter of interpretation.

The chorus continues in a similar vein and he sings: “Don’t stop your clapping, Don’t stop your laughing, Take a piece of life it’s all right, To hold back the night.”

But Noel also sings about how his brother “will still hold a groove in my heart,” seemingly asking for forgiveness as the song ends.

Noel walked out on the band hours before the penultimate gig in their tour, after another backstage row with his brother in August 2009.

Liam is nowhere to be heard on this song, which could show it is Noel’s way to try and explain why he had to leave the band.
