Noel Gallagher - The Dying of the Light


Noel Gallagher performs "The Dying of the Light" exclusively for RTÉ 2fm



John Gallacher
he should bring an acoustic album out! anyone agree? I'd buy it!!!
Nick Knowles
think his voice is getting beter with age
Ian marsden
Who needs a Oasis reunion when Noel keeps knockin songs like this out
Jordan Smith
The man is a genius. Four chords and a bit of poetry, he has made a song that it is becoming one of my favourite. What a great Musician!
R Channe
Every year that passes, it becomes more and more clear Noel Gallagher is the last great musical genius.  My and my thirty something buddies saw him live recently.  It was emotional how amazing the concert was.  Long live the legend that is Noel Gallagher.

I love these types of performances. You can hear every note and all of the emotion
JirijuasMusic
In this sessions he recorded "Dead in the Water"!
RubberWilbur
Why in the hell didn't someone tell me he was so good as a solo artist?
Rob Sol
I got into Oasis when I was a kid back in the mid 90s - 20 years on and he's still writing awesome songs - thank you Noel for all the good times, this just makes me remember why I got into Oasis in the first place!;)

I like this version more than the offical version. Nothing can beat a Noel Gallagher with an accoustic guitar in my opinion.
Ash Almond
Noel has inspired m to write my original songs. Thanks for the music Mr. Gallagher!
Lé Polisher
nothing like just one guitar and a great mic...and a Noel. brill
Harry Frost
The last true Rockstar. Possibly won't ever see anyone perform at his level for 20+ years again.
Creakush Coliko
This is way better than the album version. I don't know why does he add so much "pop-effects" on the album version of the songs. Same goes for Coldplay and Stereophonics. For example, listen to "Maybe Tomorrow", acoustic and album version. They are uncomparable.

When Noel performs I just can't stop watching. I think to myself I'll put some NG on while I get some work done. Find myself sat here 20 minutes later and I haven't moved, just mesmerised by the singing and the lyrics.
Michael Dane
I keep on running but I can't get to the mountain behind lie the years that I mis-spent and I've been sinking like a flower in the fountain when all the love I'm gonna need is Heaven sent Gonna try my best to get there But I can't afford the bus fare and the storm that's rolling over man, it makes me wanna cry and I was told the streets were paved with gold and there'd be no time for getting old when we were young and it's allright if you dance with me tonight we'll fight the dying of the light and we'll catch the sun Woke up sleeping on a train that was bound for no-where The echos that I could hear were all my own The world had turned and I'd become a stranger Got tired of watching all the flowers turn to stone Gonna try my best to get there But I can't afford the bus fare and the storm that's rolling over man, it makes me wanna cry Feel the cold against my shoulder when it comes on in the winter and it seems to last forever and it makes me wanna it makes me wanna cry I was told the streets were paved with gold and there'd be no time for getting old when we were young and it's allright if you dance with me tonight we'll fight the dying of the light and we'll catch the sun Ouh Ouhuh Ouh Gonna try my best to get there But I can't afford the bus fare and the storm that's rolling over man, it makes me wanna cry When I was told the streets were paved with gold and there'd be no time for getting old when we were young and it's allright if you dance with me tonight we'll fight the dying of the light and we'll catch the sun Feel the cold against my shoulder when it comes on in the winter man, it makes me wanna cry feel the cold against my shoulder and it seems to last forever and it makes me wanna it makes me wanna cry mmm mmm

pure music genius, i needed this song right this moment of my life...thanks for the heartfelt music

Ear Orgasm ... Just Super !

this man needs to be knighted soon, it would be a travesty if he wasn't
Mark Sullivan
Noel doesn't need my compliments but this track is mint, one of his best.
Tony Walker Acoustic Hour
This song tears my heart out of my chest and squeezes it like a dish rag.
oasis mad
Best song on the album and an instant classic.
Tamuna Chkareuli
I think he came to the golden era of his voice.
AGem OfSorts
One of my 'I can't really do it justice but my poor dog has to listen to me ruin it every day in the car to work' songs.
Lance Flanagan
Remember that gig at the Royal Albert Hall where Liam refused to sing so Noel rolled out and blew it away?(oh, and the next day they split up). He should do a similar gig there again with some of this new material. Ballad of the Mighty I is a great tune.
TheSeanieboy
I love this song, it makes me think of a dear friend who left this world at 37. He loved Oasis. I guess we all are trying to get some where. You cant help but feel you have been on a journey listening to Noel from Oasis to where he is now.  A musical journey and a reality check are some times needed, He played a brilliant gig at the 02 on Tuesday 10th March 2015. Hope to see him a again soon
VORB
I've listened to this for 3 hours now and I can't stop
andrew robertson
Cutting edge sennheiser earphones. £17.99 on Amazon. RTE really pushed the boat out on this budget!
RedYellow Blue
he's still as good as he was 20 years ago. god, even mccartney can't take that compliment 
Liam Nicklin
should have been number 1 this.
Nick J
After the Beatles this man is the most consistently brilliant songwriter Britain has ever produced. Fact.
Mubble Mann
Stunning. Just stunning. The world of music is so much better off with Noel being in it.
Matthew Alistair
crryyyyyyyyyy was told..... Oh i see what u did there

We were told that the streets were paved with gold and there'd be no time for getting old when we were young... Love the fucking-emotional chief
Edgar Perez
when you understand the simplicity of music, and you understand that you don´t need maaany chords or hard riff or powerchords, and when you only need to say what you just feel with your heart, and you learn how to express your emotions with a Little help of poetry, you will get to this kind of masterpieces. Noel is not a genius, he is just a very dedicated and of course a talented musician, when you understand music is just discipline and full dedication, you will get to créate very good music. My respects for Noel and Liam, OASIS can not be one withouth the other. Clear example of YING and YANG. Saludos a todos quienes leen y escuchan OASIS una de las bandas mas chingonsisimas de los 90´s, desde Riviera MAya, Mexico abrazos.
David Jones
Seems strange to me that I could owe so much to a man i've never met but yet again I am in his debt for giving me something so brilliant.....
Mel García
¿Cómo no quererlo? Me encanta liam pero con esto me queda claro quien manda. <3 Grande Noel.
flairnatureboywoo
Noel is a living legend.
Gabriel Davies
Taylor swift 800 million views Noel Gallagher only 800k wtf is wrong with the world
Rockmario Martínez
You're real Rockstar Sir Gallagher lml
Neil Tucker
awesome song,awesome sounding acoustic, great vocal,Noel Gallagher my musical idol!!!
songohan511
this man is pure class.. always makes me happy to hear him playing
DAW1968
Outstanding. He never claims to come up with the best riffs or be the greatest musician or guitarist, but as a lyricist/songwriter he's up there with the very best.
dizee271
Such a fantastic vocal. One of the best the world has ever heard.
Andy Sparks
he's one of the best for sure!
brioesque
it's been so interesting watching him grow as artist for the last 20yrs, think he's only gonna get better
Jamie Deamer
The DON, what a performance. Legend
Phil Kavanagh
As great as he is with a band, this has always been Noel at his best. The guy gets mocked for using simple chords but the song writing is second to none. What a talent. I hope I get to see him one day just playing his acoustic live. That would be amazing. Keep knocking those songs out Noel.
heathensunshine
This is why I still love you. I will forever be an Oasis/Noel Gallagher fan... <3
Martin Attard
this should be listened, by every human being on earth ... 
Victor
God Blessed Noel. Genius.
max go
Not even human how good this is. One of the best versions of any song ever written
Daniel Flannelly
Far better than Liam.Hope I don't meet Liam around Burnage.
Paul G
Great lyrics, great chord progression, great voice, a Martin D28, and a Steinway. Doesn’t get any better
Joe Lewis
When I got into Oasis I knew they were amazing,but what amazes me most is the sustained brilliance of this man! Thanks Noel for all these anthems
Rodrigo Cardoso
Composição de um nível acima dos meros humanos. Me arrisco a dizer que é sobre fé, mas, também pode ser sobre qualquer outra coisa.
mattiacolore
it is just incredible, for me, how this man could easily create songs like this. i'm a songwriter. he's masterpiece songwriter. i''ve always thought that wroting music it's something you ave in the veins. but not all the veins are similar. someone are bigger then other. long life captain.
Rotund Adonis
this is an interesting song, noel gallagher has been fairly vocal that his lyrics in oasis were from an optimistic point of view, this is riddled with regret, maybe this is down to age vs youth i really enjoyed this one, Im def looking forward to the new album
Ken Miller
Next to Chris Cornell... Noel always delivers feeling with great lyrical content. Both of them are meant to be felt, not so much heard.
Luciano Viola
An absolute genius. An outsider in today's music world. I hope he continues like this for many many years. Thank you Noel.
Gaz Paylor
Only just spotted this. Wow! I love the album version but this just blows it away. NG at his best here. Love it!
TakJakTelewizor
This song is unbelievably gentle, honest and yet so brutally truthful and makes me wonder about multiple things. Hope that it exerts positive vibes on everybody. Personally, song of the decade and the album is extroadinary. Pure genius. Best song writer of our generation. Thank you Noel.
MG3AEH
"There'd be no time for getting old when we where young.." just pure genius..
SpeedBoost
Noel's ability to write instant classics is scary. Most artists write their best stuff in the earliest part of their careers and then they spend the rest of their careers trying to recapture that previous inspiration. However Noel seems to be writing just as strongly today as he was back in the Definitively Maybe days! How is that even possible?
SAINT ANDREW
i love the song, the lyrics and the performer... cant stop listening
Arman J.C.
What a talent! How come his music is so different in every lyric and weirdly similar in rythm that it keeps me waiting for more acoustic songs...!!
Cian McCarthy
I just wrote on another video that I thought ''Dead in the Water'' was better than this. Now... I can't choose between them! BOTH AMAZING SONGS!!
Strabbs12345
Never a big oasis fan, I like em, just don't love em, but I did love the master plan album, and this is why, Noel with a guitar singing simple little lines I could listen to all day, love him to do an album of just him acoustically
Scott Hopkins
Truly amazing song I can't stop listening to it at the moment.
gareth EGS
Definitely in my top 3 Noel Gallagher high flying birds ... but this version more than the official version ...
mark rigg
Best lyricist this country has ever had. This man is brilliant
Psicodelia
  Sigo corriendo, pero no puedo llegar a la montaña Detrás de mi están los años que desperdicie Y he estado sentado como una flor en una fuente Cuando todo el amor que voy a necesitar es enviado desde el  cielo Voy a intentar lo mejor para llegar allí Pero no puedo pagar el pasaje del autobús Y la tormenta que esta llegando Hombre, me dan ganas de llorar Cuando me dijeron Que las calles fueron pavimentadas con oro Y se sabe que el tiempo correcto era cuando éramos jóvenes Y esta bien, si bailas conmigo esta noche Vamos a luchar contra la luz que muere y cazaremos el sol Desperté durmiendo en un tren que se dirigía a ninguna parte Los ecos que podía oír eran todos míos El mundo había cambiado y me había convertido en un extraño Me cansé de mirar todas las flores convertirse en piedra Voy a intentar lo mejor para llegar allí Pero no puedo pagar el pasaje del autobús Y la tormenta que esta llegando Hombre, eso me dan ganas de querer llorar Siento el frío en mi hombro Cuando se acerca el invierno Y parece que durará para siempre Y me dan ganas, me dan ganas de llorar Cuando me dijeron Que las calles fueron pavimentadas con oro Y sé sabe que el tiempo correcto era cuando éramos jóvenes Y está bien, si bailas conmigo esta noche Vamos a luchar contra la luz que muere y cazaremos el sol Voy a intentar lo mejor para llegar allí Pero no puedo pagar el pasaje del autobús Y la tormenta que esta llegando Hombre, me dan ganas de llorar Cuando me dijeron Que las calles fueron pavimentadas con oro Y sé sabe que el tiempo correcto era cuando éramos jóvenes Y está bien, si bailas conmigo esta noche Lucharemos contra la luz que muere y cazaremos el sol Y el frío en mi hombro Cuando se acerca el invierno Hombre, me dan ganas de llorar Y el frío en mi hombro Y parece que durará para siempre Y me dan ganas, me dan ganas de llorar!
Graham Staples
What a song, what a singer! Love it!
Eduardo Santos
I just felt chills when I started to hear this song... He's a masterpiece itself! Long live Noel!!! :D
Ariel Escardini
Semejante piano, para esos arreglos chotos. Menos mal que amo a Noel
Michael Leeming
I couldn’t agree more. The last genius, I like that. I could listen to this forever.
James Flynny
One of his best by far. Magical, majestic, mystical!!!
aksoom1159
the lyrics are amazing. chords are pretty easy and just repeating. but the lyrics are too good so it doesn't bother.
mattilevi
Noel has a lot of talent but I wish he had a better producer. The album versions always lose the true power of the song.
Youngsta73
One of the greatest singer/song writers of our time. Legend.
bleep77
When you give Noel an acoustic guitar and a microphone, you're gonna get something mind-blowing and magical. Every single time.
Mark Cole
You so kick ya bruvs arse.100% pure British quality.
Natxo Txuri
Maravillosa versión. Zorionak Noel
SERGIO DANIEL SALAZAR BENITEZ
2018?

Maturity of his lyrics suggest a life lived, highs and lows. Reflection into reality

This song is much better in acoustic than album version. Noel is the master.
JD_uk93
I love the guitar, piano and noels voice altogether! Love his music. Booked my tickets for the 24th May in Cardiff Castle can't wait
Patrícia Baruffi
A familiar voice that quiets my soul. I can never get enough of it..

Always preferred his voice to his brothers
MrGranit87
Best song I've heard in years! Such a powerful message, I think if I was younger I wouldn't understand it but now pushing 30 I understand, Noel I didn't particularly like oasis cause of liam but you are awesome!
