10. “Lyla”

Described by Noel as “specifically designed for pogoing,” all you need to do is look up any live video of this tune: the crowds go apeshit. Strategically placed during the first few songs of their sets, it was the perfect song to get everyone going and in the right mood. Their first UK No. 1 since 2002’s “The Hindu Times”, “Lyla” was also one of the few Oasis songs to chart in America reaching #19 on the US Modern Rock Charts. Noel also commented that the tune is “a bit like… The Soundtrack of Our Lives doing The Who on Skol in a psychedelic city in the sky, or something.” It’s not quite psychedelic city, but it is a pounding rock tune in the typical, rousing Oasis fashion. Bonus points: the tune was also covered by Foo Fighters a few months after its release. –Stevie Dunbar
