The 49-year-old wrote and co-produced the single, which featured on Oasis’ second studio album ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’. It has since become one of the band’s most recognisable songs, which Gallagher still performs in his solo sets to this day.
However, Gallagher’s own stance on the song has now been made clear during a new interview with Absolute Radio. Set to air in full on Monday (May 29) to mark his 50th birthday, Gallagher told the station’s Andy Bush that he believes the greatest song he’s ever written is “the next one.”
“’Wonderwall’ has become a worldwide hit, and I will get stopped all over the world, in any city you care to name, and people will sing ‘Wonderwall’,” he said. “I don’t particularly like that song – I think ‘Cigarettes And Alcohol’ is a far superior song.”
