This is a cover idea I’ve been tossing around for a while. I’ve always loved Oasis and this song is one of my favourites – even though it doesn’t really sound much like an Oasis song. While I liked the rhythm guitar led original I wanted to put my own stamp on it hence the introduction of the piano and a sax solo… yes, a sax solo in an Oasis song!
If Half The World Away sounds a little familiar to you there’s good reason for that. It was used as the theme tune to the popular sitcom The Royle Family and a cover version by Aurora was also featured in the John Lewis 2015 Christmas Advert, so it’s had plenty of plays over the years.
Have a great day!
