Noel: "it was Rockin' chair or Wonderwall" + Rockin' chair cover by Rod Stewart

Tribute to my favourite song ever, Rockin' chair. Another hidden gem, tucked away on the b-side of Roll with it. Rather unusually it begins with a fade-in which leads to a pretty, Hammond-led tune and a strong melody which is equal parts Ian Holder and Lennon. The lonesome organ and dainty guitar-picking betray Noel's love for Johnny Marr. As on Wonderwall, the more sensitive nature of the lyrics (similar to the love depression atmosphere of Slide away) provides a good showcase for the full range of Liam's often overlooked vocal talents. One of Liam's greatest vocal performances (Slide away, too).
It's also written by Chris Griffiths, in fact this song results written by Gallagher/Griffiths.
Here you can see a video made by me, about my first time in England, and Rockin' chair.
You can read an explanation of the video here on Oasisblues on the right column.
Themes of escape and aging. Noel: "I think that was an earl one as well. Like a lot of the early ones it's about wanting to leave home. This town holds no more for me... I must have wrote it in Manchester. The song's about wanting to be somewhere else. Again, it mentions the telephone as a lot of my early songs do. And the rain. I think we played that one live once (here it is)
the first date of the British tour when Guigs couldn't be bothered getting out of bed 'cos he had his nervous exhaustion and we had Scott (McLeod) in the group, briefly. I think we played it on the first night and then sacked it after that 'cos the chorus was too high for Liam.
It was gonna be on the album, and then I wrote something else.I think it was Wonderwall. Imagine if Wonderwall had been a b-side! We wouldn't be sat here now, I tell you that. We'd be in the fucking Falcon in Camden, going 'Have you got any money for a beer, Keith, and then I'll tell you about my new record?' I think I made the right choice. Rod Stewart's done a cover of Rockin' chair. I'd like to hear it."

here it is Noel, it's unknown around, and it wasn't on YouTube, so I uploaded this little gift for the Oasisblues readers :)
