The Soundtrack To Your Weekend

22nd August 2013 | Posted in Music

We've spoilt you the last few weeks with this whole weekend playlist shenanigan, so why stop the fun now?

This week we've mixed up a real corker for you- a Britpop concoction sent from the 90's to turn your Bank Holiday weekend into a celebration of all things old school. Expect tracks from some serious legends like Oasis, Blur, Pulp and Supergrass.

One thing though- don't do that awkward thing where you just kind of bop along. Get stuck in and let loose-they're anthems for a reason. We all know you know the words, so let's hear your best voice now. Thank you. See you at the bitter end. YEEEHA

Blur-Song 2 One of the best guitar strumming, drum smashing, voice shredding anthems of the 90's, Song 2 is pretty much everything you want it to be if you're trying to get yourself going. It's dirty, and it's so wrong it's right in so many ways. WAHOOO! Oasis-Cigarettes & Alcohol Looking for some action? All you're gonna find is Cigarettes and Alcohol (according to messer's Gallagher and Gallagher, anyway). Here's another unashamedly rock and roll track that verges on fantastic unadulterated sleaze. We reckon it's one of the most underrated Oasis songs going, and it has to be a bank holiday weekend must. Pulp-Common People Jarvis Cocker. JUST LOOK AT HIM. Fantastic. What a guy. This is like watching a fantastic history video with a genius soundtrack. Lets face it, we're all common people, so let loose and and feel absolutely no shame in enjoying this. We're all sat in the office putting this track list together and we're bloody loving it. Cue air guitar. Yeah buddy. Supergrass-Pumping on your stereo How'd you like them eggs? Would be what we'd shout if we could play this at some kind of cheesy disco. It's a proper feel good tune, and well. If that's not what a bank holiday weekend is about, then what is? Because it's definitely not about having scarily long limbs. The Jam-That's Entertainment Not an official Britpop tune- and to be honest, we don't care, because it's good, and we can all have a sing along to it. Anyway, this is our list. And what we say goes, so. Tough. We can't believe that this was released in 1983. It makes a few of us here feel far too old. Enjoy, whilst we get a little bit sad. Ocean Colour Scene-The Day We Caught The Train 'Sipped another rum and coke, told a dirty joke' WOOOAH LALAAAAA. That sums it up, doesn't it? Forget about the whole train riding thing, just concentrate on the chorus. Pulp-Disco 2000 Dear lord Pulp were fan bloody tastic. Can't really help but feel a bit nostalgic at this point. This is getting all very emotional. Give us a moment whilst we try to get it to together for the next song... Supergrass-Alright Andddd we're back! If this doesn't put a smile on your face and make you want to dance after a few Sherry's, then you need to go and see a Doctor and find out why you're so serious. GOOD MOOD BACK. Blue-Parklife Obviously no Britpop list would be complete without this track. Although it feels odd writing Blur and Oasis in the same list. They really just did not get on, did they? It'd be a bit like the modern equivalent of making Peter Andre and Jordan sit next to each other for a few hours- stupid, slightly dangerous, and with the possible risk some horrific love child. What a stupid analogy. Oasis-Live Forever If you're a Saturday night reveler, you wanna live, you don't wanna die (ever), then this song will hit a few chords. Although this is a typical Oasis lashed up Liam screeching, Noel guitar string tickling master piece, there' s a nice little meaning behind it all 'Maybe I will never be, all the things that i want to be, now is not the time to cry, now's the time to find out why.'Interestingly, Oasis wrote this as a direct response to Nirvana's 'I hate myself and I want to die'. Works for us. Bloody nice song that Mr and Mr Gallagher. Babybird-You're Gorgeous Here's one for all you romantics out there, you bunch of lovers you. Oasis-Don't look back in anger They always say finish strong, and generally, things don't get much better than Oasis. So, here you have it. A true soundtrack to every spine tingling moment of the 90's. And now tonight. RESULT. Well, we're feeling nostalgic. Writing this has been a bit of a roller coaster of emotion. Sad because we feel old. Happy because these tunes are just down right brilliant. Have a cracking Bank Holiday weekend everyone. Down with Mondays.
