Oasis Start A Royal Scandal With "Falling Down" Video

February 4, 2009 3:37 PM ET

Oasis are back with a new video, this time for "Falling Down," the latest single of the band's Dig Out Your Soul. Directed by Wiz, the video's plot seems pretty clear, as we follow a bright-eyed, luxurious young woman from random people's beds to random drug dens. Later on, we see the woman putting on a crown, meaning that she's regal or something, and at a red carpet event Oasis' Gallagher brothers both snub the woman, hinting that one or both of them got it on with a member of the Royal Family. How do we know she's a member of the British monarchy? The final shot is a Gump-esque composite featuring the woman and Prince Charles side-by-side. So while Oasis' spokesperson says the plot is of Wiz's own creation, the real question is "Which real-life Princess had relations with one or both of the Gallagher boys?" Watch the video above.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
