Initially one is attracted by the cover artwork on those all important first 12 singles. Only Pink Floyd albums seem to have such consistently enticing covers!
Each single features four tracks and is usually long enough to fill one side of an album. What's more the tracks are often more varied than what you get on the albums.
Wonderwall is no exception.
Everbody knows that Oasis were heavily influenced by the Beatles, but how many people know that Wonderwall was the name of George Harrison's 1968 album of experimental Indian music? Oh, you did!
Everybody knows the track, plenty of cello, a noise that sounds like sackbutt at the end and Liam's famous elongated 'Maybe's.
Next is 'Round Are Way'. This song introduced us southerners to that awful expression 'minging'. I didn't know what it meant at the time of release so I assumed Liam was still singing about birds of the avine variety. It's a great rousing song, all the same, complete with brass section and 'Got to get you into my life' influenced drum fills.
Next is the swamp song. It's noisy, it has no words and a rather repetitive harmonica line. We heard two snippets of it on 'What's the Story', now we have the whole thing. For this reason I give the CD 4 stars instead of 5. It's OK, but it goes on a bit!
Finally, we have the Masterplan. Great downbeat verse offset by the triumphant chorus where the brass musicians obviously got a second job with the Oasis boys! This is Noel at his most philosophical - 'All we know is that we don't know'.
The band were clearly copying their idols (the Beatles) in tucking away songs of this quality as a B side.
Round Are Way (Sic) is a brass-filled stomper, which some people will love for its catchiness and audacity, and some will feel may be a bit simplistic. The Swamp Song is an extended version of those two little instrumentals on (What's The Story) Morning Glory, which is hardly ground breaking.
But it's Wonderwall and The Masterplan that make this single magic.

Another of my favourite Oasis singles - Wonderwall brings back alot of memories. The lead song itself is so meaningful, and the other tracks continue a nice feel. Read morePublished on 4 Sept. 2006 by Picard
Admittidly, im not the biggest fan of Wonderwall. Oasis have done much better stuff. I am a huge fan of the band though, they are simply the best band ever. Read morePublished on 1 Jan. 2004 by C. M. Hollis
