Was Noel Gallagher Singing About Bangkok

Was Noel Gallagher Singing About Bangkok?

A simple song; it’s sometimes a strange and beautiful thing how we attach memories and emotional ties to songs. They can take us back in time and help us remember all manner of things from our past at hearing them again after many years and miles have pasted.

One such song for me is Cigarettes and Alcohol by Oasis. With Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds playing in Bangkok later this week I’ve revisited some of the Oasis back catalogue and some of the lines from that song took on new meaning to me. “You can wait for a lifetime, To spend your days in the sunshine… you gotta make it happen!” It’s a great punk song with a positive message mixed up with hedonism but one thing is for sure, whatever you want from life, no-one’s going to give it to you, you have to find a way to do it yourself!

Noel and the boys knew that. They took their band from Manchester and conquered the world. Now it’s your and my time to live the life we want to live. Don’t look back in anger, you’re free to be whatever you want to be! Make it happen!
