"This writer, he was going on about the lyrics to Champagne Supernova and he actually said to me: 'You know, the one thing that's stopping it being a classic is the ridiculous lyrics.' And I went: 'What do you mean by that?' And he said: 'Well, 'Slowly walking down the hall/ Faster than a cannonball' - what's that mean?' And I went: 'I don't fucking know. But are you telling me, when you've got 60,000 people singing it, they don't know what it means? It means something different to every one of them.' "
-Noel Gallagher, interview with Times Online, 2009
