It turns out that Noel Gallagher doesn't know what half his songs mean. Presumably because when he tries to think about the actual lyrics, he starts to feel a bit odd...:

"I get the odd night when I'm halfway through Don't Look Back In Anger when I say to myself. 'I still don't know what these words mean!'

"I'm thinking what the ...what the... 'stand up beside the fireplace'. Why?

"And all these kids will be singing it at the top of their voices with all their arms around each other and I kind of feel like stopping and going, 'Look, can somebody help me out here? Am I missing something?'"

... and then something like this happens...

Wasn't that 'Stand up beside the fireplace, take that look from off your face' line about what Noel's mum used to say to him when family photos were taken at Chateau Gallagher?
This maybe wrong those as I think I hear it on one of those crap nostagia/list

Ah, but this is, of course, Gallagher desperately trying to pretend to there's more to his songs than that.

Actually, I'm thinking 'It's what your mummy said, Noel' might make a smashing slogan for a mug or something...
