Morning Glory (5:03)

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

From (What's the Story) Morning Glory? and 48 other releases

“Morning Glory” is a song by British rock band Oasis, written by Noel Gallagher, and which was released on the band’s second album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory ? in October 1995. It was given an Australian-only single release and was also a radio single in the United States.
Gallagher claims that he was drunk while writing it. According to Noel , parts of the song were inspired by walking while listening to a Walkman (“walking to the sound of my favourite tune”) and using cocaine (“all your dreams are made/when you’re chained to the mirror and the razor blade”), since razors are often used to cut cocaine into lines on a mirror, from which they are then snorted. It has been suggested that the song is about drug addiction in general (“need a little time to wake up/need a little time to rest your mind/you know you should so I guess you might as well”).

The line “Tomorrow never knows what it doesn’t know too soon” seems to reference The Beatles’ song “Tomorrow Never Knows”, though Gallagher claims to have completely forgotten why he felt it was relevant to the song. Over the years the song was regular on their live performance set.
