Noel Gallagher
'The Death of You and Me'

Noel Gallagher's first solo single "The Death of You and Me" finds the former Oasis songwriter stepping only just a tiny bit outside of his comfort zone. While the chords and melody are about what you might expect from Gallagher, he pushes himself to the top of his vocal range on the verses for an effect that's not far off from Chris Martin from Coldplay's "falsetto note at the end of every line" trick. The grim quasi-Western tone is somewhat new for Gallagher too, but by the time the chorus hits, it's just a dimmer version of Oasis' big sunny hooks.
