The Oasis song Wonderwall has beaten tracks by The Beatles and Led Zeppelin to

be named the best British song of all time in a radio listeners' poll. The 1995 song

topped the Virgin Radio poll of more than 8,300 listeners.

Here's the top ten list:

1. Oasis - Wonderwall

2. Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

3. Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven

4. The Beatles - Let It Be

5. John Lennon - Imagine

6. The Police - Every Breath You Take

7. The Jam - Going Underground

8. Verve - Bittersweet Symphony

9. Robbie Williams - Angels

10. The Stranglers - Golden Brown

Robbie Williams at Number 9? :blink:

Was it only one song per band?

I think Wonderwall should have been down by Number 4 or 5...and hey, I don't even like Oasis.

Bohemian Rhapsody should have come first, followed by Stairway, followed by Imagine, then either Wonderwall or Let it Be.

Come on, they shouldnt have chosen Let It Be for that poll. Its far from being the best Beatles song. Its actually not very good. Its overrated. Just because its slow and carefully recorded doesnt make it great!

PS: Izzy's Girl, I listened to Bohemian Rhapsody, and I came to the conclusion that it did break music boundaries. I like all but the opera part though ...
