Live Forever (4:36)

Cover of Definitely Maybe

From Definitely Maybe and 105 other releases

“Live Forever” is a song by British rock group Oasis, written by the band’s guitarist and chief songwriter Noel Gallagher. It was released as the third single from their debut album Definitely Maybe on 8 August 1994, just prior to that album’s release.

Gallagher wrote the song in 1991, before he joined Oasis. Inspired by The Rolling Stones’ “Shine a Light,” “Live Forever” features a basic song structure and lyrics with an optimistic outlook that contrasted with the attitude of the grunge bands popular at the time. The song was the first Oasis single to enter the top ten in the United Kingdom, and garnered critical acclaim.

According to the Live Forever Songfacts, the lyrics are partly a tribute to Gallagher’s mother. She was an avid gardener, and her garden is mentioned in the song.
