Noel wrote dance track for Madonna

NOEL Gallagher wrote an "acid house" song for Madonna.

The former Oasis guitarist wrote a lot of songs after the group's demise in 2009, and was planning to offer some tracks to other artists, including a dance tune which he thought would be perfect for Madonna.

Speaking about the track ' AKA... What A Life!', he told The Sun newspaper: "I was thinking of the piano from Rhythim Is Rhythim's 'Strings of Life'.

"It was very acid house to begin with and so I was thinking of giving it to someone. I thought about Madonna then [my wife] Sara said, 'Don't be daft, Madonna won't sing it. When are you likely to see Madonna?' So that spoiled it."

The 'Death of You and Me' singer has included the song on his debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds', which is released in October, and he expects it to be a hit because it's got the seal of approval from dance musician Fatboy Slim.

He added: "I asked Fatboy Slim to remix the song because I f***ing love him. But he said he couldn't do anything with it as it's great. But I still wasn't sure so I played it to our office and all the girls loved it. Once girls like it, you're on to a winner. The song's easily up there with the best things I've ever done."
