Little By Little (4:52)

Cover of Heathen Chemistry

From Heathen Chemistry and 54 other releases

“Little by Little” is a song by British rock band Oasis, first released as the sixth track on their fifth studio album Heathen Chemistry. In September 2002, it was released with “She Is Love” as the first (and, so far, only) double A-sided single by the band, peaking at #2 in the UK Singles Chart (see 2002 in British music). Noel Gallagher provides lead vocals on both tracks, which he also wrote.

“Little by Little” was perhaps the most controversial song on the album, receiving mixed reviews from those who felt it was a classic example of an upbeat Oasis anthem and those who felt it was a twee, patronising, sycophantic melody. Regardless of this, the song managed to peak at number two in the UK charts based largely on the publicity garnered by the song.

The promo video to the song featured a guest role by Robert Carlyle. The cover art for the single is an homage to Robert Indiana’s LOVE artwork.

We the people fight for our existence
We don't claim to be perfect but we're free
We dream our dreams alone with no resistance
Fading like the stars we wish to be
