Liam Gallagher On His Favourite John Lennon Track

The January issue of UNCUT is on sale now, featuring an all-star panel of musicians selecting their favourite song by the late Beatle John Lennon.

30: Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)

From the John Lennon & Yoko Ono album, Double Fantasy (November 1980)

Written for son Sean, then aged five, and partially inspired by the writings of French psychologist Emile Coue, "Beautiful Boy" sees Lennon extolling the simple joy of fatherhood.

"Little James was inspired by "Beautiful Boy" and "Hey Jude". More "Beautiful Boy".

People who've got any soul will realise that there's a day when you go home and put your feet up and cuddle your kids. If anyone slags it off, they've either got no heart or they don't know what the meaning of life is.

They just go out and do-do-do-do-do the same thing everyday. So f**K them. You can't win with these people.

They're going, "You're the wild man of rock, you're this, you don't f**king care," and when you do show a bit of caring, they call you a poof...

Originally, I wanted it to be acoustic. Have you heard Lennon's demos? They're dead crackly, and it's just on the guitar, and that's the way I'd like to write music. But if it's gonna be on an Oasis album, it's gotta be big, hasn't it?

So then I played it to Noel, he went away with the band and he goes: "What do you think of this?"

I went: It's f**king top."
