Supersonic

Album: Definitely Maybe (1994)
Charted: 31
  • I need to be myself
    I can't be no one else
    I'm feeling supersonic
    Give me gin and tonic
    You can have it all but how much do you want it?

    You make me laugh
    Give me your autograph
    Can I ride with you in your BMW?
    You can sail with me in my yellow submarine
    You need to find out
    'Cause no one's gonna tell you what I'm on about
    You need to find a way for what you want to say
    But before tomorrow

    'Cause my friend said he'd take you home
    He sits in a corner all alone
    He lives under a waterfall
    Nobody can see him
    Nobody can ever hear him call
    Nobody can ever hear him call

    You need to be yourself
    You can't be no one else
    I know a girl called Elsa
    She's into Alka Seltzer
    She sniffs it through a cane on a supersonic train
    And she makes me laugh
    I got her autograph
    She done it with a doctor on a helicopter
    She's sniffin in her tissue
    Sellin' the Big Issue
    When she finds out
    No one's gonna tell you what I'm on about
    You need to find a way for what you want to say
    But before tomorrow

    'Cause my friend said he'd take you home
    He sits in a corner all alone
    He lives under a waterfall
    Nobody can see him
    Nobody can ever hear him call
    Nobody can ever hear him call Writer/s: Noel Gallagher

  • Robert from Chicago, IlOne of the best songs by Oasis with probably one of the most infectious riffs in music history. In America this song is still unknown as, everything British to America. One of the most underrated songs in music history
  • Sam from New York, NyDanny from NY, you're blantantly wrong. Look it up they are two different guitar riffs that sound somewhat similar, but that happens constantly in rock.
  • Danny from New City, NyThe main guitar riff is all but the same one used for "Layla." I mean, cmon, this is blatant plagiarism.
  • Luke from Cambrigeshire, Englandnoal wrote this wile recoreding "bring it on down" he had some time to waste in the session becouse the drummer at the time tony mccorrol kept getting the opening drum beat wong, so noal did what he normal did and sat in the corner of the recording studio and writing songs, They recorded it stright after noal had wrote it.
  • Mark from Virginia Beach, Vainfectious guitar riff!!
  • Ronnie from Huddersfield, EnglandIt peaked at #31 in the British Charts on April 11, 1994 making it their lowest charting single to date and themselves being small at the time. However, despite this, it has become one of their most popular songs and a standard at live gigs.
  • Bones from New Plymouth, New ZealandElsa was a dog at the Studio
