Champagne Supernova (7:30)

Cover of (What's the Story) Morning Glory?

From (What's the Story) Morning Glory? and 54 other releases

“Champagne Supernova” is a song by British rock band Oasis, written by guitarist Noel Gallagher. The seven-minute anthem is the closing track on the record-breaking album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?. Only though released as a single in Australia, France and the United States, a music video directed by Nigel Dick was released to the music channels and, as a result, the song received much television and radio airplay. The song achieved U.S. success, becoming the band’s second #1 single on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.

The song is considered a fan-favourite, and has received widespread critical acclaim. Noel Gallagher claimed, in a 2005 interview, that he has still not made up his mind as to what the song actually is about, though he thinks it might be about reincarnation.

According to Songfacts, Noel Gallagher got the title when he misheard the name of the Pixies album Bossanova. He was watching a documentary about champagne at the time.

Noel Gallagher then had this to say about the song’s lyrical content on the bands official website:

Some of the lyrics were written when I was out of it. There’s the words: ‘Someday you will find me/ Caught beneath a landslide/ ln a Champagne Supernova in the sky’. 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. The song is a bit of an epic.
