Album Don't Believe the Truth
Info about song
"The Importance of Being Idle" is a song by the English rock band Oasis from their sixth album, Don't Believe the Truth, written and sung by lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was the second single released from the album in the UK, on 22 August 2005, where it debuted at number one (see 2005 in music). It was also the first time that Oasis earned two successive number ones in the same calendar year. "The Importance of Being Idle" would prove to be the band's last UK #1 hit prior to their 2009 breakup. It was written by Gallagher in the summer of 2004, before the band made their final attempt at recording what would become Don't Believe the Truth. He got the title from the book of the same name, which he found whilst cleaning out his garage (it belonged not to him but to girlfriend Sara McDonald). Read more on Last.fm.
