"Morning Glory" is a song by the English rock band Oasis, written by Noel Gallagher, and released on the band's second album (What's the Story) Morning Glory? in September 1995. It was given a commercial single release only in Australia and New Zealand, and was also a radio single in the United States.

Music video[edit]

The song's accompanying video is directed by Jake Scott. The band is performing in an industrial apartment, suggested by the opening shots of the video to be the Balfron Tower (not to be mistaken with Trellick Tower), as the building's tenants (including a man with a baby, a young boy, an old man and a female cyclist, an elderly woman with a hair dryer, a middle-aged woman in a house coat, a mafia boss and two bodyguards, an Indian couple, a drug addict, another elderly woman, and young woman and her mother) take offense to the loud noise of the band's playing and come up to knock on the door and look in the mail slot. The video concludes with all the tenants gathering around the door, beating on it and yelling, just as the band finishes playing and packs up their instruments. As of 2017 the music video had over 12 million views on YouTube.[2]

Other releases[edit]

  • In October 2005, a remix of the song was released on the soundtrack to the movie Goal!. It was done by Don't Believe the Truth producer Dave Sardy.
  • The song is included on Oasis' compilation album Stop the Clocks. On the original album, the song segues into the 40-second untitled track, which in turn segues into "Champagne Supernova". This is the same thing that happens on Stop the Clocks, except the untitled track is not included, leaving the water sounds from "Morning Glory" to directly segue straight into "Champagne Supernova".
