Behind the music one is good as well, with the English narration on YouTube, just before SOTSOG, a bit more uncut I prefer it

I don't agree with THAT, in the workplace!

Lucky, I was born in 93, would have loved to have seen them mid 90s!

Acquiesce
Supersonic
Slide Away 
Girl in the dirty shirt
Hello
Morning glory
Sunday Morning Call

All brilliant tunes but barely scratching the surface here.
The one band where I find it next to impossible to do them justice with a small such a small list. Suppose it shows how good they really were.

Was there ever a thread made for best Blur songs, or was it a short lived thread? Oasis are very good, but I think Blur are much better, seems to be a minority or unpopular opinion

Blur are a better band musically,  but they didn't have anywhere near the same cultural impact.  I prefer Blur, but Oasis understood the masses: perhaps unintentionally!
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Oasis had the cultural impact they did because they had amazing songs and a singer who had one of the greatest voices ever heard in music. And they did it while being signed to the effectively bankrupt and shambolically run Creation Records. They would have been a massive success in any era, but they seemed to arrive at a perfect moment, they literally couldn't have chosen it any better had they tried. Acid house had declined and diversified, Madchester had gone, and Kurt Cobain shot himself five days before their first single was released, British guitar music had gone into a lull.

They created an energy and a swagger from which the whole of popular culture in Britain from 1994 to 1997 seemed to feed, but especially working class northern popular culture. The resurrection of British guitar music in popularity, the rise of the Premier League, popular television programmes like “Our Friends In The North”, Euro '96, Labour's election landslide. What I mean by that is that much, most or even all of that would have happened anyway but it would have felt very different. It's like imagining the 1963-1967 period without The Beatles. Oasis were like the cultural water that the whole of Britain swam in in that whole mid 90s period. You couldn't escape them. It was their world and everybody else was living in it.

Love both bands but Blur would shade it for me...Pretty drunk now but best songs at a random pick now would be
Trimm Trabb
No Distance Left to Run
Under the Westway
You're so Great
End of a Century
For Tomorrow
There's no Other Way
Death of a Party

Was at Open'er festival in 2013 in Gdansk. They were headlining in which was their first ever show in Poland...Was class seeing how excited people were for it!

Blur were for middle class college goers and Oasis were for the working class brickies

In Supersonic they show Oasis rehearsing in 1993 playing 'All Around the World'.  Yet it didn't appear until their 1997 album.   They really should have held back those B sides for the 3rd album and put some of the stuff off of Be Here Now on the B sides instead.
Disregard the ice warnings and proceed full steam ahead. We are making great time. I want that trans Atlantic record! And turn off that bloody infernal Morse Code system!

The love of Oasis comes from way more than just music. For many people it was the first and perhaps only time they really connected with music. 

But. if you drill it down they had 2 goodish albums and nice B-sides but they churned out so much sh i te subsequently. I don't know how people still think the Gallaghers are musically relevant (not to mention politically...who gives a sh*te what NG thinks about Europe, or anything else?). 

They did incredibly well to exploit their modest talent. Whatever Noel had for that initial couple of years it deserted him badly; it would seem it was almost a fluke (i.e. 3 good years, 13 bad).

While Blur are not world beaters, there is serious talent there and some brilliant albums (13, in particular). It's not that Blur are for college people, it's that Blur are for music people. It's not a class thing at all.
