The former Oasis rocker was convinced by Radio X's Johnny Vaughan to reunite with the Manchester band... on one condition.
But when the Manchester rocker visited Radio X to talk about the release of his Black Star Dancing single and the details of its EP of the same name, talked turned to getting the band back together.
However, after the Radio X DJ joked he'd find the money to get Oasis back together by giving some of the proceeds to charity, Gallagher joked: "You do it mate. Show me the actual money..."
He added: "You get me an Adidas holdall with 8 million quid in it I'm there!"
When Johnny Vaughan reminded him that £1million would be go towards a good cause, the Don't Look Back In Anger singer simply said: "Seven then, seven".
An Oasis reunion might be still up in the air, but when it came to what band he would love to get back together, Noel was far more definite.
"If I was God for a day," he mused."If you could make it happen and they'd all be happy about it happening, I would love to see The Smiths again."

Noel also told Johnny Vaughan and the 5-7 thang how a fan once mistook him for being in Catatonia.
The Ballad of the Mighty I singer might be responsible for writing some of the most iconic British songs in history, but not everyone is so clear on what's on his list of credits or what band he was in.
Recalling a memorable encounter he had with a fan, he revealed: "I had someone come up to me recently and say, 'You in that band? Oasis?'
"And I said, 'Yes' and this girl just went, (singing Catatonia's Road Rage) 'It's all over the front page, you give me road rage.'"
