Soundtrack of Your Life Entry #17 Stand By Me
Day 17 of "The Soundtrack of Your Life challenge. *Smile*

Not that "Stand By Me"... this is:
Stand By Me by Oasis




On the heels of "Dream on", it seems like we are running two great rock songs back to back. It is hard to compete with Aerosmith but this is a pretty nice song on its own that also manages to hit on an emotional level. I like the guitar lead in. My favorite part of song though is the segment that the song goes into right before the chorus.

"What's the matter with you
Sing me something new
Don't you know the cold and wind
and rain don't know
They only seem to come
and go away"


It the most melodic segment of the song with a rapid rush of lyrics that makes me smile. In terms of themes... much like the classic Ben E. King song, the song is an appeal to friendship. The song is open to interpretation however, I like to think the song reminds you that while the future is uncertain it safer with a companion standing by you!
