Lock All The Doors

Album: Chasing Yesterday (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Noel Gallagher first began working on a song in the early 1990s. It appears on many lists in his notebooks from that period, which were auctioned at Christie's in 1998.
  • Gallagher has always liked the chorus, but could never find a way of tying it all together. As a result, it was shelved from Oasis albums. Explaining how it finally made it onto a record, Gallagher said during a Facebook Q&A : "I always meant to finish it off. One afternoon I was coming out of the Tesco Metro in Maida Vale, where I live, and I don't know what it was, but it just hit me, coming round the corner, just by Boots, it came to me in a flash of inspiration."
