Today The Journalix is looking at The Beatles references in Oasis songs. We’re calling it THE OASIS BEATLES PLAYLIST! Clever, huh?
THE OASIS BEATLES PLAYLIST
Supersonic – Oasis (Definitely Maybe – 1994)
Not the only Yellow Submarine reference from Oasis. A strong start to this love affair.
? You can sail with me in my yellow submarine ?
D’you Know What I Mean? – Oasis (Be Here Now – 1997)
Two famous Beatles tracks are name-checked here:
? Fool on the Hill and I Feel Fine ?

Morning Glory – Oasis ((What’s the Story) Morning Glory? – 1995)

? Tomorrow Never Knows what it doesn’t know too soon ?
Live Forever – Oasis (1994)
With a picture of John Lennon’s home “Mendips” on the sleeve, where he lived with his Aunt Mimi.
I Am The Walrus – Oasis (Cigarettes & Alcohol b-side – 1994)
