Oasis' Live ForeverHas Been Voted The Best British Song Ever By Radio X Listeners

In a new Radio X poll, Oasis’ hit record “Live Forever” has been voted the best British song ever, replacing 2017’s Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. Written by Noel Gallagher, the song was released as the third single from their debut album Definitely Maybe (1994) on 8 August 1994, just prior to that album’s release. Gallagher wrote the song in 1991, before he joined Oasis.

This year Oasis dominated the top 10 with a total of five songs including: “Live Forever” (No.1), “Don’t look back in anger” (No.3), “Wonderwall” (No.6), “Slide away” (No.7), and “Champagne Suoernova” (No.9). 

I have always tried to aim higher than I think is possible. Some people try to be bigger or better than their contemporaries or their predecessors… Me? I’m just trying to be better than myself, which as we now know is virtually impossible“, Noel Gallagher responded to the news saying.


The poll has upset music fans online who have criticised it for not including any women and only two artists of colour in its shortlist of 100 tracks.
