Wonderwall voted the best British song of all time

“Wonderwall” is the best British song of all time, according to the listeners of Radio X.

Oasis utterly dominated the results of the poll, occupying all four of the top positions: “Don’t Look Back In Anger” came in at number two; “Champagne Supernova” at three; “Live Forever” at four.

 

 

“What can I say? The people have spoken” Noel Gallagher commented.

He added: “The fact that there wasn’t one single Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds song in the top20 makes me think the whole thing is a mockery of an unreliable sham! Saying that though I’m thrilled.”

Surprisingly, The Beatles didn’t even crack the top10: “Hey Jude” was voted number thirteen and “A Day In The Life” number nineteen.
