I love these types of performances. You can hear every note and all of the emotion
RubberWilbur
Why in the hell didn't someone tell me he was so good as a solo artist?
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
JirijuasMusic
In this sessions he recorded "Dead in the Water"!
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!
Ian marsden
Who needs a Oasis reunion when Noel keeps knockin songs like this out
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
Martin Attard
this should be listened, by every human being on earth ... 
Mubble Mann
Stunning. Just stunning. The world of music is so much better off with Noel being in it.
Lé Polisher
nothing like just one guitar and a great mic...and a Noel. brill
Tony Walker Acoustic Hour
This song tears my heart out of my chest and squeezes it like a dish rag.
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!;)
ladymay30
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!
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.

this man needs to be knighted soon, it would be a travesty if he wasn't

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.
TBYG
pure music genius, i needed this song right this moment of my life...thanks for the heartfelt music
Mark Sullivan
Noel doesn't need my compliments but this track is mint, one of his best.
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.
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.
Luke Busuttil
Ear Orgasm ... Just Super !
Matthew Alistair
crryyyyyyyyyy was told..... Oh i see what u did there
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
Shane Worrall
His voice has got a lot better, round 2000 id go for a pint when he was singing, little by little used to turn me.
RedYellow Blue
he's still as good as he was 20 years ago. god, even mccartney can't take that compliment 
oasis mad
Best song on the album and an instant classic.
Tamuna Chkareuli
I think he came to the golden era of his voice.
CatchTheSunIA
Well...this is going to be on repeat for a good while.
Liam Nicklin
should have been number 1 this.
gemarcher83
This song is much better in acoustic than album version. Noel is the master.
bluecris013
Un verdadero genio Noel
VORB
I've listened to this for 3 hours now and I can't stop
Declan Garland
Quite simply...Outstanding...The Chief is Back..
Danny Hatzikonstantinou
This is incredible. Noel's voice is spot on. Thank you for posting this.
David W
Beautiful.
brioesque
it's been so interesting watching him grow as artist for the last 20yrs, think he's only gonna get better

Thomas Welraeds
Far better than Oasis.
Gem Faulkner
Just how I'm seeing it, but Noel in this looks like he's really enjoying doing the song. Like I'm looking back over acoustic sessions he did to promote the last album but here he seems way more comfortable, sounds spot on vocally and looks like he's really grown into doing these sorts of sessions. Cut me some slack, it's nearly 4am where I am right now.
Jamie Crowe
A God like genius by far the best track on the album this is noel Gallagher through and through he is living proof that you can come from anywhere and go through so much shit in life and still come out on top of the world
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?
Neil Tucker
awesome song,awesome sounding acoustic, great vocal,Noel Gallagher my musical idol!!!
Alfredo Vasquez
Dios santo , ¿Cuándo será el día que Noel deje de sorprenderme?
flairnatureboywoo
Noel is a living legend.
Rockmario Martínez
You're real Rockstar Sir Gallagher lml
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!

2018?
kez kezza
Maturity of his lyrics suggest a life lived, highs and lows. Reflection into reality
M. O.G.
sounds like wonderwall and underneath the sky mixed together  still an AWESOME song though!!!!!!!!!!
Eduardo Santos
"It’s alright, if you dance with me tonight We’ll fight the dying of the light and we’ll catch the sun..." Holly molly Noel Gallagher where's such inspiration come from?? I always cry when I listen to this version... Noel Gallagher's songs always transcend.
Lazaros Theodorou
That moment when you feel a song was written just for you...
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...!!
songohan511
this man is pure class.. always makes me happy to hear him playing
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.
SP C
Such a change in my taste of music nowadays. But one thing is certain, discovering NGHFB when i was 15 was so well timed that i'll always hold a special place for Noel. When i revisit the acoustic songs and dig through endless rarities of him singing with this sort of passion it does take me back to being insanely obsessed with this man and everything he was involved in. Ha.
Blue&Green
wtf, i have those headphones! they cost £20 of amazon!
smokey mcbongwater
I fully understand this song, and can even see it from noel's point of view he's had quite the life with Oasis on top of the world and continued to make amazing music on his own. We all have that invincible feeling when we were young almost like it was gonna last forever. Now looking back on my own life it has been quite the ride. Miss a lot of friends that are not hear today
Mel García
¿Cómo no quererlo? Me encanta liam pero con esto me queda claro quien manda. <3 Grande Noel.
bleep77
When you give Noel an acoustic guitar and a microphone, you're gonna get something mind-blowing and magical. Every single time.
Car Crazy!
LEGEND...FOR 25 YEARS NOW...SCARY HOW QUICK TIME FLIES!
dizee271
Such a fantastic vocal. One of the best the world has ever heard.
JormaX
amazing performance! one of my current favourite tracks from Chasing Yesterday
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.....
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
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.
Craig Murray
Must have listened to this about 100 times in the last week. Noel you are a poet and a legend x
Rob Collins
What a tune! But where was that bus going to the moon?
Jamie Deamer
The DON, what a performance. Legend
James Flynny
One of his best by far. Magical, majestic, mystical!!!
CareerVidz
We all know who the talented one in Oasis was!
freddybeer
HOW?! How does he keep on writing songs of this calibre? Liam needs Noel. Noel never needed Liam. Together they are sublime but NOEL is the songwriter. What good are smooth pipes with no songs to sing? And I prefer Noel's voice anyway. This is gorgeous! '....and they'd be no time for getting out when we were young.' - THAT melody!
Gary Deeley
They are better off apart get the best of both worlds
mark rigg
Best lyricist this country has ever had. This man is brilliant
Coco the MonkeyBoy
musician with all of his soul. incredible songwriter
alan anderson
You've either got it or you haven't.....Noel Gallagher has it.
paolosera
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
Victor
God Blessed Noel. Genius.
Arthur Targino
godlike
mitford
always preferred noel even when he was in oasis,
AC Parumog
The live versions are waaayyy better than those in the album. One of the best songwriters ever. And his voice...one word to describe it: perfect!
Blitzn
Still writing top songs....One of the greatest songwriters ever.
great1846
The songwriting is so good, words fail me.

Noel >>> (Oasis+Liam)³
SAINT ANDREW
i love the song, the lyrics and the performer... cant stop listening
JoeyJanuaryVids
One of the best songs he ever written, and he has made some good ones :)
Patrícia Baruffi
A familiar voice that quiets my soul. I can never get enough of it..
Raphael Rodriguez
Greatest song writer ever
andrew robertson
Cutting edge sennheiser earphones. £17.99 on Amazon. RTE really pushed the boat out on this budget!

I'm crying now. I cry for my daughter. What a song! Think of Noel has written this is my favorite. I'm so sad and tired of my life.
Filipe R.
great song, just like oasis's good old times.
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.
I hope I think I know
Best musician ever
Nicolas Hugo Perino
More than a genius.

"There'd be no time for getting old when we where young.." just pure genius..
Rob Sol
And straight after this - he recorded "Dead In The Water" (without even knowing he was being recorded) which then went on the next album, which then went to Number 1... thus making him the only artist in history to have all his albums debut at Number 1 in the UK - and that ladies and gents in why people call him God.
