Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Liam Gallagher singing backed by barely more than an acoustic guitar. It was originally recorded with a full band, but when it came time for Liam to overdub his voice, producer Dave Sitek decided to strip it back. Guitarist Gem Archer told Q magazine: "It sounded amazing, so we kept it like that. That's production too- taking everything off."
