The song is considered a fan-favourite, and has received widespread critical acclaim. Noel Gallagher claimed, in a 2005 interview, that he has still not made up his mind as to what the song actually is about, though he thinks it might be about reincarnation.
According to Songfacts, Noel Gallagher got the title when he misheard the name of the Pixies album Bossanova. He was watching a documentary about champagne at the time.

Noel Gallagher then had this to say about the song’s lyrical content on the bands official website:
Some of the lyrics were written when I was out of it. There’s the words: ‘Someday you will find me/ Caught beneath a landslide/ ln a Champagne Supernova in the sky’. That’s probably as psychedelic as I’ll ever get. It means different things when I’m in different moods. When I’m in a bad mood being caught beneath a landslide is like being suffocated. The song is a bit of an epic.
