Are you a helpless–or helpful–romantic who is looking for a sweet YouTube video to impress your loved one or significant other (not all significant others are loved) for Valentines Day? Are you thinking of just settling for some lame e-card? If you aren’t looking for that video, then you probably don’t want any smooches. If you are looking for that video and can’t find one that isn’t lame and sappy, then look no further!

Oasis is one of my favorite bands. Not too many people can claim that or do claim that or are even willing to admit that if they do. If you’ve heard of Oasis, you probably have only listened to “Wonderwall“. If you are that person, you probably love singing it at dessert parties and campfires. Also,you are probably super lame. C’mon mayne! The members of Oasis (well, at least Liam) don’t even like “Wonderwall“. Before and after that dreaded acoustic guitar ballad, Oasis rocked. And they made a little known doozy called “Slide Away”.

“Slide Away” is from their first album “Definitely Maybe” and it’s my favorite album of theirs. The songs are harder and less drawn out, plus the lyrics are simple, powerful and comprehensible.

So, if you are looking to rock your significant other’s pants off (didn’t mean that literally, but take it as you will) then go ahead and check this song out.

Written by Noel Gallagher himself and vocals by Liam Gallagher.

Here is the rock version (skip forward to :35 unless you want to hear swears):

And here is a softer version with Noel on the vocals:

“Slide Away” Lyrics

Slide away – and give it all you’ve got

My today – fell in from the top
I dream of you – and all the things you say
I wonder where you are now?
Hold me down – all the world’s asleep
I need you now – you’ve knocked me off my feet
I dream of you – we talk of growing old
But you said please don’t !
Slide in baby – together we’ll fly
I’ve tried praying – and I know just what you’re saying to me
Now that you’re mine
I’ll find a way
Of chasing the sun
Let me be the one that shines with you
In the morning when you don’t know what to do
Two of a kind
We’ll find a way
To do what we’ve done
Let me be the one that shines with you
And we can slide away.

Slide away – and give it all you’ve got
My today – fell in from the top
I dream of you – and all the things you say
I wonder where you are now?

Slide in baby – together we’ll fly
I’ve tried praying – and I know just what you’re saying to me

Now that you’re mine
I’ll find a way
Of chasing the sun
Let me be the one that shines with you
In the morning when you don’t know what to do
Two of a kind We’ll find a way
To do what we’ve done

Each week I will be posting a Beastie Boys video. I started to do this daily on my friend Quin Stevenson‘s wall. He needs to be educated on the finer things in life. Too often is he trying to impress me by showing me Ke$ha vids. This needs to stop and what better way to do that than by flooding his life with Beastie Boys music.

Beasties don’t just honor anyone.

0:01 – Beasties start out by rappin “Here We Go” by Run DMC

0:10 – I haven’t seen any live rap/hip-hop performances, but I have watched a lot on YouTube and I have to say that the Beastie Boys are some of the best.

0:15 – Shot of the crowd. Looks like we got some celebs in there. We can at least see D.M.C (Darryl McDaniels). All of them head bobbin to the simple, yet sick beat.

1:18 – What ever happened to hip-hop groups?

1:32 – Dude looks like Rick James. “Cocaine is a helluva drug

1:42 – Chicks with cocktail dresses in the crowd? Super lame. Get some real fans in there, please.

2:06 – Flava flav spotting. I don’t see Chuck D though. Does Flav wear a clock absolutely everywhere? Or just in public? I wonder how many he owns.

2:42 – Mix Master Mike takes a break and lets Doug E. Fresh take over. I get goosebumps every time I watch this. Ladies, don’t watch right after shaving.

2:56 – So happy

3:11 – Flava Flav seems to be wearing sweats that are 18 times too big for him.

3:30 – We love you Jay.
