Oasis Morning Glory, Champagne Supernova, and Wrap Up

       How great does the song Morning Glory make you feel?
       This is the song you most look forward to on Oasis's 90s rock album What's The Story Morning Glory. You become excited listening through the playful She's Electric. The reason the song pumps up your heart is no accident.
       The song is straight up written about Cocaine.
All your dreams are made when you are chained to the mirror and the razor blade.
In fact, if you are recovering from a drug addiction, especially one to stimulants the song might serve as a good substitution. Oasis' Morning Glory gives you the feelings of a cocaine high. This is straight up rock and roll. No artistic expressions (unless you consider the helicopter intro artsy) just loud forceful guitars.

          I know you Oasis fans are mad fer it already. So here is some free Oasis music.

This is a decent music video.  As it acknowledges the climatic guitar solo by having someone score a soccer ball past another. But the video doesn't give full justice to the ear splitting intro and outro of the song. Only the Oasis Morning Glory vinyl album can do that.

The next song on the album is Champagne Supernova. People have their own meanings to this epic closer of the What's The Story Morning Glory album. But I love the live versions of Champagne Supernova because the ending was stretched out by 5 minutes with Noel Gallagher improvising solos. Magical! But Noel's take on the song is interesting. Summarized from Wikipedia is a combination of many things:

Someday You will find me caught beneath the landslide in a Champagne Supernova in the sky
Noel Gallagher says, "That's probably as psychedelic as I'll ever get. It means different things when I'm in different moods. When I'm in a bad mood 'being caught beneath a landslide is like being suffocated'."

According to Noel the song was also about believing in a group such as a band ( the sex pistols for him) to conquer the world but they fail to live up to that promise. 

And lastly the lyrics 

Slowly down the hall faster than a cannonball 
is about a British television series called Camberwick Green. It took the host twenty minutes to walk down the hall. Noel couldn't rhyme anything with hall except cannonball.

But when the music company takes that down, Here is the album.

To wrap things up, Oasis What's The Story Morning Glory is ear candy. It's just melancholic enough in terms of the British sensitive voices to make it poignant. And the guitar riffs and energy make it a great way to start a glorious morning!
