Some Might Say (5:28)

Cover of (What's the Story) Morning Glory?

From (What's the Story) Morning Glory? and 72 other releases

“Some Might Say” is a song by British rock band Oasis, written by the band’s lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was the first single to be released from their definitive second album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory ? in 1995, and provided the band with their first #1 in the UK Singles Chart (see 1995 in British music).

The track was apparently inspired by the Small Faces and/or T-Rex. It was the last Oasis track to feature original drummer Tony McCarroll, who was asked to leave the band before the main recording sessions for (What’s the Story) Morning Glory ? when tensions arose between McCarroll and the Gallagher brothers. The rest of the tracks on the album feature Alan White on drums.

The sleeve artwork, shot at Cromford railway station in Derbyshire, England, features art director Brian Cannon’s father with wheelbarrow and his mother with mop. Also pictured are Matthew Sankey, Cannon’s aide and Carla Knox, barmaid of his local pub. Liam Gallagher can be seen on the bridge whilst Noel can be viewed with a watering can. Cannon himself rates this piece amongst his greatest works.

The planned promo video for the song was cancelled due to Liam not turning up for the shoot. Instead, a makeshift video was created using footage from the “Cigarettes & Alcohol” and US “Supersonic” videos.

In an interview promoting the compilation album, Stop the Clocks, Noel stated that “Some Might Say” is the “archetypical Oasis song’ and ‘defines what Oasis is”. This is notable, as the song isn’t played live much. Noel added later in the interview that along with “Some Might Say”, its b-side, “Acquiesce”, was also the song that defined Oasis.

Some might say that sunshine follows thunder
Go and tell it to the man who cannot shine
Some might say that we should never ponder
On our thoughts today, 'cos they will sway over time
