Songfacts®:

  • Liam Gallagher performed this snarling rocker on TV for the first time during his September 26, 2017 performance on Later…With Jools Holland. Jimmy Webb was another guest on the show and afterwards Gallagher proudly tweeted that the legendary US songwriter had told him that one of the lyrics from this song ("And it's a long way down. When you're the wrong way round") was "one of the finest lyrics" that he'd ever heard.
  • Gallagher loves performing "Greedy Soul" at his live shows: "It's got power and energy, it's aggressive, it's a good vibe. It's like having a vindaloo," he told The Independent. "When you're singing it you're sweating – it's like having a really hot curry. You know when you have hot curry and you go 'it's f---ng mad this but it's good 'cos you're sweating your tits off.'"
