Noel Gallagher’s Playlist


Noel tells us about the music he loves to rip off. At first you will wonder why the Beatles aren’t on here, but then you’ll remember the Beatles aren’t on iTunes. All songwriter swindling debates aside, foookin’ a man, d’you know what i mean?? some killer tunes. You can grab it on iTunes HERE.

(Track 1) Aphrodite’s Child – The Four Horsemen
“An absolute lost psychedelic classic fronted and sang by the ’70’s housewives’ choice – Demis Roussos – everything else he done was utter sh*te!!” – noel

(Track 2) The Pretty Things – Baron Saturday
“So good that I fully intend to base the rest of my career around it.” – noel

(Track 3) The Soundtrack Of Our Lives – Infra Riot
“The opening track from the album Behind The Music. The album of the decade. (FACT)” – noel

(Track 4) The Doors – Back Door Man
“We always forget just how good the Doors were. Could’ve picked maybe a dozen classics. This one will do for now.” – noel

(Track 5) Bob Dylan – Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)
“The tune made famous by Manfred Mann, which is brilliant, but the original? Phew…far out! This is why Dylan’s a genius.” – noel

(Track 6) Michael Andrews – The Artifact and Living
“It’s that piano piece from the Ford Mondeo advert. Beautiful.” – noel

(Track 7) Marmalade – I See The Rain
“Another lost 60’s psychedelic classic. Get on the guitar solo.”- noel

(Track 8 ) Colosseum – The Kettle
“Don’t know anything about these lot apart from they’ve been sampled by Fatboy Slim and they all love to solo, all at the same time.” – noel

(Track 9) Pink Floyd – One Of These Days
“Bloody awesome, old bean!!!” – noel

(Track 10) Elvis Presley -Moody Blue
“The King. ‘Nuff said.” – noel
