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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
