Facts: Morning Glory is a song by British Britpop band Oasis. It is featured on their record breaking second album (What's The Story) Morning Glory? (1995).
It was released as a single on 15 Sep. 1995 only in Australia and as a radio-single in the US.
Lead Guitarist (and brother to singer Liam Gallagher) Noel Gallagher claims he was drunk when he wrote it.
According to Noel, parts of the song were inspired by walking while listening to a Walkman ("walking to the sound of my favourite tune") and using cocaine ("all your dreams are made/when you're chained to the mirror and the razor blade"), since razors are often used to cut cocaine into lines on a mirror, from which they are then snorted. It has been suggested that the song is about drug addiction in general ("need a little time to wake up/need a little time to rest your mind/you know you should so I guess you might as well").
The line "Tomorrow never knows what it doesn't know too soon" seems to reference The Beatles' song "Tomorrow Never Knows", though Gallagher claims to have completely forgotten why he felt it was relevant to the song. Over the years the song was regular on their live performance set.
Towards the end of "Morning Glory" you can hear a woman singing "Without a lover to call your own". This is a snippet from a Soul II Soul track called Love Enuff, which bleeds into track 11 on the Morning Glory album and was a hit in July 1995. Its unclear whether its inclusion is deliberate or not. The song's guitar riff closely resembles The one I love by R.E.M.
According to Gallagher in a 2005 interview, the song originated from an early song called "Blue". The lyrics were something along the lines of:
"I live my life in blue,
There's nothing anyone can do"
...which he decreed to be "fucking awful." There was also an early song written by Noel, entitled "The Mirror and the Razorblade", where the first verse went:
"The mirror and the razorblade,
If you live round here it's where your dreams are made,
There's no beach, no bucket and spade,
...the second verse went:
"Rainy Monday afternoon,
All you need is your favourite tune,
The end of the day can't come too soon,
...and the third verse went:
"Remember what we used to say,
The dreams we'd dream and the games we'd [play],
It doesn't matter anymore anyway,
: I'm an MLP fan and I enjoy plenty of airplanes, and music. I have a SoundCloud and a Tumblr account. I am a musician and I make my own music as well as cover songs. I have a bass, an electric, and 2 acoustic guitars, 2 keyboards, a drum set, low budget mikes, and a PC with audio programs to mix it all. I can/used to sing in 19 languages (I doubt it sounds that good). Music is my drug, my addiction. I never leave home without my iPod. My favorite bands/artists are a-ha, The Verve, Green Day, Marilyn Manson, Cocteau Twins, and Nirvana. The songs I write personally are heavily influenced by them. My favorite styles of music are pretty much everything except rap, but my fav's are Punk rock, Alternative Rock, Dream Pop/Shoegazing, Psychedelic Rock, Industrial Metal, and pop.
I been drawing for over 6 years or so now, and I do not consider myself a visual artist in any way.
I value individuality very highly; I am a registered Libertarian. I keep an open mind about religion; I am an Agnostic. I draw what I feel like, and that could be anything and everything, meaning if it's sexy, it is, if it's ugly, it is, if it's cute, it is, if it's controversial, it is.
I have a lifelong dream of being a pilot, of some sort. Currently I am studying to eventually become a Computer Technician with hopes of sticking to it and moving up the ladder.
