There is absolutely no way for my money under any kind of context outside of the bubble of a u2 crowd that BD is a bigger singalong track than DLBIA .... i just can't buy that. Not in Britain not from what i have personally seen anyway.

This isn't about which song is best/quality etc it is simply about the singalong factor and DLBIA for me is the easy winner when it comes to that.

you really have to trust me on this one. that's not a hit single here, not in texas anyways. ive been to 2 Noel shows and 6 U2 shows. i promise the response isn't as big to DLBIA. Noel isn't that kind of draw here. He played a small theater and a bigger theater but as opener for SNOW PATROL. They had like one hit.

I qualified with in Britain ages ago, my friend!!

You are gonna have to trust me!

I know oasis did nothing over in your part of the world....you may find it hard to believe just how big they were when they broke here - it was incredible.

Check out knebworth gigs for example.

What i am talking about is pint spilling, hands aloft, grown men hugging communal singalong stuff here and DLBIA in Britain was/is enormous in that respect with arguably the most well known/most rabble rousing chorus ever.

The NME think so at least: Their description of your boys the killers mr brightside is spot on too IMO.

oh mate i'm so sorry! i thought you meant everyone in the known universe! like angels in heaven are singing DLBIA to God upon high!

trust me i'm well aware of Knebworth and that 3% of the population tried for tickets. ive got the bootlegs and the Supersonic doc.

Oasis 1995-1997 were bigger in Britain than U2 1987-88.

in Britain probably.

They weren't when you preferred Pulp & Blur (in that order) over Oasis at the time. 

I was at Twickenham at the weekend, and I now think that Noel has really stood the test of time.  Knew he would be really good, but better than I thought.  Would be prepared to go see him again.

just pointing out that i agreed!

i find it odd that Pride is the U2 song they chose but i can't say they're wrong. I haven't heard of a good portion of those in the link.

simply about the singalong factor

Exhibit B - You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
Exhibit C - You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

The latter just to drive the point home, that even THOSE 2, get massive sing alongs.

The location? Oh wait, it's Manchester.  ;D

Come on Jack, you're well wrong on this one!!

I had the day off work today and stood outside London Victoria Station and conducted a survey.

The question was:

Which one of these songs do you consider to be the biggest singalong?

Elevation - u2
Vertigo - u2
Dont Look Back in Anger - Oasis
Beautiful Day - u2
Lazyboy is wrong an tha is spot on -The anyone with any sense band

Results

Elevation - an old mans dog

Vertigo - 2

DLBIA - 23,765

Beautiful Day - il_capos hairdresser

LBIWATISO - 0 but 12,235 people said 'i bet if i heard it i'd say that'

'Help there is a loony on the loose' - 24

'I hate bono the tax dodging p****' - 1,326

'Sorry mate i have no spare change' - 547

'You're nicked, son' - 1 bizzy (policeman)

So there you have it.....

Back to the OP: I think the song is fine. Seems like it was more of a gesture to close a show, and there’s really no reason to try and create controversy over it. But whatever…

I wouldn’t mind seeing Noel someday, though. I saw Oasis open a Popmart show in ’97, and thought they were good. But I think most of the crowd was still getting their margarita drink cup necklaces (anyone remember those?) filled when Oasis was playing. So obviously, not  much of a singalong in that Oakland crowd that night.

I can’t speak for the Brits… but “40” anyone?
