It's not very often that a B-side gets a lot of attention, but in the case of "Acquiesce," it's well deserved. Released as the back of 1995's "Some Might Say," "Acquiesce" is one of those "sing along with yer mates" Oasis tunes that made them such a revelation in the mid-'90s. Essentially a song about friendship (not about the brotherly bond between Noel and Liam, as is sometimes supposed), "Acquiesce" was almost the A-side (or at the very least the other A-side -- both ideas presented by Alan McGee and turned down by Noel Gallagher) of that single. While "Some Might Say" was a hit in itself, "Acquiesce" took on a life of its own, becoming a regular concert staple, and makin' just about everyone realize that while having an Oasis album was good, getting the B-sides on the singles was even better. Beginning with a "preview" of sorts of the album (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, the song arrives with huge guitars and moves with a midtempo swagger and power that are just infectious. What takes the song beyond previous Oasis work, however, are the shared vocal duties between Liam and Noel. While Liam takes on the soul-searching verses, Noel's ability to hit the high notes takes the celebratory "because we need each other, we believe in one another" to glorious heights. Easily one of the best songs Noel ever wrote, "Acquiesce" is a song that perfectly captures a band at its most creative and powerful.
