"Shakermaker" as written by Noel Gallagher, Roger Greenaway, Billy Davis, Roger Cook and William Backer....
I'd like to be somebody else and not know where I've been
I'd like to build myself a house out of plasticine
Shake along with me
I've been driving in my car with my friend Mr. Soft

Mr. Clean and Mr. Ben are living in my loft
Shake along with me!
I'm sorry but I just don't know
I know I said I told you so

But when you're happy and you're feeling fine
Then you'll know it's the right time
It's the right time
To shake along with me!

Mister Sifter sold me songs
When I was just sixteen
Now he stops at traffic lights
But only when they're green

    General CommentNoel wrote this song as a piss take, he purposfully made it sound like the start of the coke commercial and made it as stupid as possible.
    does anyone else think it's weird that the first line of the first Oasis single was "i need to be myself" and the first line of the second single was "i'd like to be somebody else" ? i jus think that's a but perculiar

    General CommentThis song, when i first heard it i was about 6, and to like a song so much at six is pretty amazin, but this song turned me into an oasis fan in 1995 and i still worship their songs today, and probably will 4 the rest of my life. It will b incredibly difficult 2 see a band come along with more flair, more inspiration and more sheeeeeeine in my lifeteeeeeeeeime!
    It's just a song so fresh and 10 yrs after it was written it is still a fresh song that cud knock any song in the charts of top spot if it were re-released...........but why re-release it, its here, its been here 4 ages and if u havn't heard then u r eithr 2 young r a nutcase. If u hav heard it (mor than 100 times) and u still adore this song then u r propr MAD FER IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    General Commentthe intro is dead addictive and liam's singing, he sounds drugged up on this one but that just makes it sound better!

    General CommentNoel's borrowing riffs technique is briiliant again with Shakermaker...The New Seekers who wrote "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" should bow down to the GODS

    General CommentIt's not about anything lol. A bit Lennonesque with some of the psychedelic stuff. Really like it though, the video's quality too, especially the way Liam gives that sarcastic look as he sings the "Shake along with meeeeee"
