"Cloudburst" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
Wake up ! There's a new day dawning
I think I'll take a little walk for a while
I need shades 'cause the sun is blinding
And I can see for miles and miles
Then I can feel the earth beneath me
I lie down we are as one
And they look but they cannot find me
I'm off heading for the sun

I'm getting colder
I feel a chill the air
There's a change in the weather
Here it comes again
Now I can feel the rain

The wind that brings on the change
Is taking me over
The wind that brings on the rain
Is making me older

Downtown the moon is shining
I'm gonna dress me up in style
My business everybody's minding
I need to get away for a while

I'm getting colder
I feel a chill the air
There's a change in the weather
Here it comes again
Now I can feel the rain

The wind that brings on the change
Is taking me over
The wind that brings on the rain
Is making me older

    General CommentCan't believe nobody has commented on this song! Its not a classic but i think its really underated. And it has a really simple but kickin lead guitar line that comes in at about 3.30mins. Its one of those stadium sized, foot on the amp lines. I tell you, if Oasis wrote a song as good as this on their new album i would be more than happy. The reality is - they won't. Cos they are old and can't manage it any more. Boo.

    General Commentits also a bside on live forever, and yeah this has to be one of their most underated songs; it should have made the album proper along with sad song, why is it the japanese always get the bonus tracks?!

    General CommentAlbums are a fucking steal in Japan! So they get extra tracks to make up for it.

    "I'm getting colder, I feel a chill in the air

    I believe this song is talking about a brand new day starting with crazy stuff happening already, as he needs 'shades cause the sun is blinding him.' When it says, "Here it comes again..." it's stating how "Here comes the shit..." so all this bad shit happens to him only to wake up to a new day tomorrow and have the same thing happen.

    General CommentThis is one of those where you think there might be some deep meaning, but actually, they probably just wrote a song about the weather.

    General CommentIt's a pretty boring song I think, at least the mid section. The highlights being the main riff starting around 0:28 and the outro kicking in at 3:54. The outro riff is so good I though it was stolen from somewhere else, but apparently not.

    Also the demo version is much better (in my eyes) than the actual recorded version.

    General Commentlove the song, amazing work although it could of been constructed better... they don't make b-sides like this anymore.
