English 10: Writing Portfolio
Catholic Memorial High School
|Dear Liam Gallagher,
My name is Jay Reardon and I am a sophomore at Catholic Memorial High School in Boston, MA. In my
English class, I am studying Contemporary British Literature, and since you are a songwriter and are
from Manchester, England, I thought of writing to you. I am also writing to you to invite to come to
my school and share some of your work with my class.
I am a drummer, so as a musician, I love music. Your band Oasis is one of my favorite bands. I grew
up during the time your music started to flourish. Some of the songs I like are “Take Me Away” and
“Life in Vain” which I have learned that you wrote with your brother Noel. Another piece of work I
like is the album Wibbling Rivalry and the two tracks, “Noel’s track” and Liam’s track”. This piece
of work I like because it lets me listen to you and your brother. This album is also personal and I
like how you let your fans listen to it.
Other pieces of work that I like from Oasis are the songs “Wonderwall” and “Champagne Supernova.”
One line I like from the song “Wonderwall” is, “Because maybe you’re gonna be the one who saves me?
And after all, you’re my Wonderwall.” I like this line because the song is a great piece of work and
it has a such deep meaning that I personally don’t think a lot of people realize when listening to
I would like to encourage you and your brother Noel to come and share some work to show my
classmates and I in order to be better writers, whether authors or songwriters. If you cannot come,
I would appreciate it if, you even write back if you have the time. I am looking forward to hearing
from you. Thank you.
