"(It's Good) To Be Free" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
Head like a rock spinning round and round
I found it in a hole sitting upside down
You point the finger at me but I don't believe
Paint me a wish on a velvet sky
You demand the answers but don't know why
In my mind there is no time

Yeah little things they make me so happy
All I want to do is live by the sea
Yeah little things they make me so happy
But it's good yes it's good it's good to be free

So what would you say if I said to you
It's not in what you say it's in what you do
You point the finger at me but I don't believe
Bring it on home to where we found
Head is like a rock sitting upside down
In my mind there is no time

Yeah little things they make me so happy
All I want to do is live by the sea
Yeah little things they make me so happy
But it's good yes it's good it's good to be free
Yeah it's good yes it's good it's good to be free

    General Commentlovely song, amazing solo at the end but its not about drugs its about when paul gallagher (their older brother) was sent to prison, how he felt when he got out. atleast thats what noel said in an interview in 1998.

    My InterpretationFor me, this is one of the best oasis songs, and, also, one of their best lyrics. However, i don't think it is about enjoying little things in life, but about dreams that can never be fulfilled. Namely, people often think that "living by the sea" is the key for freeness, that means there is a chance for breaking out from every day life, but we all know that this is just a mere illusion. /This is the same image as Champagne Supernova' "people believe that they gonna get away for the summer"/ Of course, we all want to have a "free life", and sometimes, we are foolish enough to believe in its possibility, but i think that the lyrics states that the constant reapeating of the lines "it's good to be free" is nothing else but a way of self-persuasion that obviously cannot be successful. So, all in all, there is a deep sarcastic meaning in this little song which makes it simply perfect.

    General CommentThe song is about a sense of fitting in within yourself- A lot of Oasis songs are like that, very focused on the self. One has themselves to trust...It traces success and vanity.

    General Commentamazing tune and i liam makes the lyrics sound so meaningful, he has to be one of the greats. however its far from the greatest oasis song, slide away, go let it out, the masterplan, supersonic, live forever there's plenty better

    General CommentThis is Noels best guitar song. His guitar playing has so many levels to it in his song, many slag him off but this song confirms his status as the one of the great guitaring Brits.
