Some Might Say

Some Might Say by Oasis was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, May 6, 1995 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. "Some Might Say" was written by the lead guitarist of the English rock band Oasis, Noel Gallagher, and released as the first single from their second album (What's the Story) Morning Glory? in 1995. The song captured the spirit of the day, that something was about to happen - "Some might say we will find a brighter day" - and it was no surprise when it became Oasis's first UK #1. This was the last Oasis track to feature drummer and founding member Tony McCarroll, who was asked to leave the band during the recording sessions for (What's the Story) Morning Glory? when tensions arose between the percussionist and the Gallagher brothers. The rest of the tracks on the album feature Alan White on drums. McCarroll would go on to win a settlement for "unlawful dismissal." This was the first song Noel Gallagher wrote after moving down to London from Manchester. He has said listening to The Faces was a major inspiration for it.
