Noel goes acoustic for German radio

26 12 2011

Sometimes all you need is an acoustic guitar and a willing singer.  Noel sounds pretty dang good on this acoustic version of “If I Had A Gun,” which he performed for 1 Live in Germany.  It’s even more apparent in this acoustic version that he grabbed bits of “D’ya Know What I Mean?” and “Wonderwall” when he wrote this one.

Noel recently disclosed that “AKA…What A Life” was originally written as something of a ballad but was talked into making it a dancy number.  I’d venture to guess that this performance is how the song was originally meant to be recorded.

Are these Noel’s best vocal performances?  Probably not.  But it seems obvious to me that he has a ton of passion for performing this new material.  I don’t want to overstate it, but it’s kind of like a musical rebirth (or it seems that way on this side of the speakers.)
