#24 -- All Around the World

Album: Be Here Now

Noel hates this song now, but in the past he’s acknowledged the lyrics are just “teeny-bop”. “I just wanted to write a big, massive, orchestral, sprawling, fuckin´ rock opera. So...I just sat down and decided I was going to write a fuckin´ 11-minute song, and I wrote it.” I could care less about the lyrics – the no-holds-barred orchestration and pure, over-the-top exuberance of the song sells it for me. It’s not Hey Jude, nor is it Noel’s magnum opus, but it’s still one hell of a flag-waiver.
