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."
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
