Little by Little (Oasis song)

"Little by Little" is a song by English rock band Oasis, first released as the sixth track on their fifth studio album Heathen Chemistry. In September 2002, it was released with "She Is Love" as the first (and only) double A-side single by the band, peaking at #2 in the UK Singles Chart (see 2002 in British music). Noel Gallagher provides lead vocals on both tracks, which he also wrote.

"Little by Little" was perhaps the most controversial song on the album, receiving mixed reviews from those who felt it was a classic example of an upbeat Oasis anthem and those who felt it was a twee, patronising, sycophantic melody. Regardless of this, the song managed to peak at number two in the UK charts based largely on the publicity garnered by the song.

The promo video to the song featured a guest role by Robert Carlyle. The cover art for the single is an homage to Robert Indiana's Love artwork series.

Music Video

The video features Noel Gallagher sitting on a doorstep singing and playing guitar whilst people including a small man (played by Robert Carlyle who mimes to Gallagher) throwing money to him. It then shows Carlyle's character at a bus stop and he then grows to normal size and trips over but is helped up by Liam Gallagher. Carlyle's character is then last seen growing to giant size and walking off into a forest then into farmland.
