Oasis- Don’t Believe the Truth
United States- Oasis returned for “Don’t Believe the Truth”. It had released three singles but again, it failed to score a chart hit. The song “Lyla” reaches number 19 at the alternative music charts.

United Kingdom- Oasis again reached the apex with their 3x platinum album “Don’t Believe the Truth”. It released three singles, and see which made to the upper 10 position:
Lyla- #1
The Importance of Being Idle- #1
Let There Be Love- #2
Oasis achieved another success on singles charts for scoring their 7th and 8th number 1 singles with “Lyla” and “The Importance of Being Idle”. “Let There Be Love” became a number 2 hit. It shows that the band achieved a total of three top 2 hits, and not just the top 10.

Oasis- Dig Out Your Soul
United States- “Dig Out Your Soul” was the last album Oasis released. It released three singles again, but no top 10 hit was recorded. However, they had at least a number 12 hit on alternative music charts with ” The Shock of the Lightning”.

United Kingdom- Oasis’ “Dig Out Your Soul” was the last single released, and as usual, it was a top seller there and was awarded 2x platinum by BPI. It had released three singles again, and here’s what made it to top 10:
The Shocked of the Lightning- #3
Falling Down- #10
Oasis’ “Dig Out Your Soul” was their first album not to score a number 1 hit since their debut “Definitely Maybe”. It scored their 22nd and 23rd top 10 singles though with the number 3 hit “The Shock of the Lightning” and number 10 for “Falling Down”.

Oasis had five singles from the albums “Don’t Believe the Truth” and “Falling Down” in United Kingdom. “Lyla” and “The Importance of Being Idle” were number 1 hits in UK off the album “Don’t Believe the Truth”. But I had chosen “Lyla” to share since it is their most notable release during the era of the two albums.

Oasis- (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? 
United States- Oasis achieved higher success in United States through the album “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?”. The album had received certification from RIAA with 4x platinum which makes them a topnotch band. Finally, they scored Billboard Hot 100 hits this time. Check which was their first top 10 hit:
Wonderwall- #8
Oasis just scored one top 10 single from the album with “Wonderwall”. Thus, it is safe to assume it was their most successful single from the LP. But they also charted at number 55 with “Don’t Look Back in Anger”. In Alternative charts, they scored four singles to chart and two songs went to number 1. Of course, the other one was “Wonderwall” followed by “Champagne Supernova”.

All of the singles from the album reached the top 2. They had two number 1 singles with “Some Might Say” and “Don’t Look Back in Anger”. Surprisingly, their signature hit “Wonderwall” only settled at number 2, the same chart position of “Roll With It”. Their biggest seller was “Wonderwall” whicb was awarded by BPI with 2x platinum, despite number 2 peak. “Don’t Look Back in Anger” achieved platinum status though.

Oasis- Definitely Maybe: Top 10 Singles in US and UK

Oasis- Definitely Maybe
United States- Oasis was one of the biggest British band especially in 1990’s when they tried to break the American market. They released ” Definitely Maybe” there and went platinum despite not reaching the top 10. Their singles were released too but nothing made it to the top 10 singles too. Though, they charted the Alternative singles chart. “Supersonic” reached number 11, while “Live Forever” at number 3. Other singles never charted in any component charts like the rock or alternative music charts. Perhaps those singles weren’t released as singles. Though, the album had sold more than a million so fans have heard those tracks.

United Kingdom- Oasis became the biggest British band of their time which started with their number 1 album “Definitely Maybe”. The record achieved 7x platinum there as certified by BPI. AFter this album, they became one of the most popular British bands not just in the country but also internationally as seen from the sales. They had released four singles off the record, and the songs below went to top 10:
Live Forever- #10
Cigarettes and Alcohol- #7
Only two of the four singles managed to reach the top 10. Their first to ever grace the feat was the third single “Live Forever” at number 10 and followed by the final single “Cigarettes and Alcohol” which peaked at 7. Despite peaking higher, “Cigarettes and Alcohol” sold lower than “Live Forever”. The latter was awarded by BPI with Gold Record. Their debut single “Supersonic” only peaked at number 31, followed by “Shakermaker” at number 11.

Oasis highest peak in UK from “Definitely Maybe” was “Cigarettes and Alcohol” but their biggest seller was “Live Forever”. The latter charted higher in Alternative charts in the US as well, and one of the most notable tracks internationally from that album, so I would be sharing that alternative rock hit below and enjoy the music:

Music 10 C’s: Coldplay to Chandelier

1. Coldplay
They are one of the favorite bands. They had a lot of hit albums and singles as well. My favorite album from the band was “Parachutes” because of its melancholic and emotional sound.

2. California Gurls
The first single from Katy Perry’s album “Teenage Dream”. It featured rapper Snoop Dogg. Katy Perry dropped her pop rock sound to purely pop in this song.

3. Can’t Buy Me Love
One of The Beatles’ most notable songs. I often hear this song back then since my brother always play the compilation album of The Beatles.

4. Christina Aguilera
One of the top female artists who emerged in 1999. She had a lot big hits. It was also the title of her first album which generated four top 3 hits on Billboard Hot 100.

5. Can’t Feel My Face
One of the biggest hits during the recent year. It was a song by Canadian singer The Weeknd. It reminded me of Michael Jackson upon hearing the song with such a funk on it.

6. Cher
She is one of the most successful female artists which her career spanned decades and still relevant. Her most successful single was “Believe” in 1998.

7. Champagne Supernova
One of Oasis’ signature songs. It is one of my favorites from the band which was released during the mid-1990’s. It was taken from their biggest album “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?”.

8. Cassie
She is a R&B singer who was known for the hit “Me and U”. However, she can be considered as a one-hit wonder after the success of that sole single. She is one of the half-Filipino and half-American singer.

9. Chris Brown
He was known for a lot of hits, either R&B or EDM tracks. His most widespread successful album was “Exclusive” which generated the international hit “With You”.

10. Chandelier
This was sang by one of the best voices today, Sia. Aside from scoring hits, she wrote and produced hits for other artists today. By the way, “Chandelier” has been a global hit and even reached more than a billion views on YouTube.
