Numero Due - The Oasis of Revival

Thanks to all who have encouraged my intent to blog and sing... I really appreciate it. Especially to Harish, who showed me how to do a multi-track recording and to Garima and Lanka, who pointed out that my voice when I sing, sounds nothing like me… :)

So here is the second dosage of the karaoke intento…

1. Wonderwall by Oasis

The band that is hailed as the second Beatles. Oasis from Manchester, England creates rock music with a soothing effect. This song “Wonderwall”, as explained by the band’s lead singer Noel, “is about an imaginary friend who's going to come and save you from yourself”

I dedicate this song to that very real amazing person in my life, who has been my wonderwall, shielding me in times of need and always being there for me… The most amazing friend…. This is to her.

2. Champagne Supernova by Oasis

This was the first song of Oasis I heard. Just thought I can do it. It is said that Noel got the title when he misheard the name of the Pixies album Bossanova whilst watching a documentary about champagne. Another version is that a "champagne supernova" is the experience of smoking marijuana whilst drinking champagne. Anyway, here’s to Champagne Supernova, Cheers

3. Bad Moon Rising by CCR

Starting out as The Blue Velvets, CCR (Credence Clearwater Revival), is a 60’s rock band with a tinge of folk/country touch to their songs. "Bad Moon Rising" is a 1969 song consisting of a prediction about apocalyptic weather conditions. It doesn’t suit my voice much, but I couldn’t resist. So here it is
