>From Fred Lidskog <swede@email.unc.edu>

Listen Up, written by Noel Gallagher, performed by Oasis
Song can be found on the UK "Cigarettes & Alcohol" single, and is
probably one of my top 5 favorite Oasis songs.
Parts of this transcription were taken straight from the official tab
book for Oasis B-Sides. A chord diagramA augmentedA special thanks to Mr. Paul Das <p.das@rl.ac.uk>
for providing these chords, without which I may never have known the
correct chords for the pre-chorus and chorus!!
