Noel Gallagher admitted to ripping off his own Oasis classic “Wonderwall” on six different songs in a new interview
“I’ve used the chords from ‘Wonderwall’ now six times and, let me tell you, it’s fucking not drying up yet,” Gallagher told GQ about the music to his biggest hit.
He also discussed his creative process as he ages, “As you know, artists are an insecure bunch, because you’re kind of expressing something and giving it to other people to judge. Inside, you think, ‘Well, this is much better than the previous thing I did,’ but you’re not sure. This is the only art form in the world where the people who buy it will try and dictate to you.
Nobody stood over Picasso and said, ‘What are you painting blue for? I don’t fucking like blue. I want a red one.’ They didn’t say, ‘Sunflowers? What the fuck’s that? Who wants sunflowers?’ And nobody tells people what movies to make, but in the music business it’s, ‘No, we don’t want that.
We want this.’ Somebody said to me early on, people don’t look to you for dance beats and synthesisers. People look to you for the big choruses. I was like, ‘F**k them.’”
