    General CommentLiam&Noel say..Better Man- "Better Man. I wanted a groove more instead of a song. Not so many words. Just hitting it like don't want to be a soldier like that. Like Plastic Ono. That was it."

    General CommentThe groove is the sexiest thing they've ever done. Everytime I hear that song, I see a Ross Meyer vixen splashed about in 8mm discoloured film of red, blue, green and yellow frames. So dam sexy, this song. Favourite parts are "Uh, Uh" and the second "Yeah" in the chorus, with it's seventh chord. Simple lyrics for a fantastic groove beat - Top notch stuff!

    General CommentGroove is the right word. Fuck lyrics, the song is strong. It stands alone as a masterpiece in its own genre. Liam is a genius...at times.

    General CommentShame it lasts 38 minutes, well the song doesn't but the file it's contained on does (in the 32nd or 33rd minute an instrumental comes on, not a fantastic one, but never the less, it's Oasis material).

    General CommentThis and Columbia are the best Oasis grooves. Live versions of this song are better than the record as well, maybe a revival of it on the next tour would be appreciated?
    Unless the next album is better than DM...

    General CommentAmazing song. One of the best off Heathen Chemistry, if not the best.

    I believe it is about how Liam wants to be a "better man" than his father, who drank, abused, and beat him and the rest of his family.
