100 greatest songs of all time



OASIS’S Live Forever has lived up to its name – and been voted the greatest song of ALL TIME. The 12-year-old track has beaten classics by The Beatles, U2 and Queen in a Q magazine poll of music fans. But its writer Noel Gallagher said: “People said after Live Forever, ‘Where are you gonna go after that?’ I was like, ‘I don’t think it’s that good.’ I think I can do better.”

Oasis pulled off a double feat. Their hit Wonderwall was No2 in Q mag’s all-time Top 100. And two other Oasis songs — Don’t Look Back In Anger and Champagne Supernova — also made the list.

Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit was third in the rock-heavy poll.

The Beatles’ six entries were the most for any band.

A Q spokesman said: “Live Forever doesn’t date. It satisfies a timeless need for communal joy.”
