Oasis top Greatest Hits Radio Coronation Countdown

The Greatest Hits Radio Coronation Countdown has revealed the most streamed UK songs of the 70s, 80s and 90s.

Airing on the station across the Coronation weekend, the countdown showcased the 300 songs by UK music artists that have stood the test of time since their release in the 70s, 80s and 90s as they were streamed by new generations of music fans.

From 1995, Wonderwall by Oasis topped the chart of 300 songs, which was compiled by the Official Charts Company.

Not only did the band’s iconic song reach Number 1 but Don’t Look Back in Anger, also from 1995, charted at Number 6.

Wonderwall, which was held off the top spot in 1995 by Robson & Jerome with I Believe, racked up 312,670,000 streams. Queen rounded out the rest of the top three with Bohemian Rhapsody with 273,420,000 streams at Number 2 and Don’t Stop Me Now at Number 3 with 242,100,000 streams.

On hearing the news Noel Gallagher said: “I met a guy going into Waitrose the other day, an Irish fella, who grabbed me and said ‘What was that song that you and your brother did all those years ago?’ I thought, let me throw a dart in the dark here, and said ‘Was it Wonderwall?’ He said ‘That’s it! Wonderwall! I love that song. I didn’t care for much else of it though’.

“But do you know what when they do these charts it’s such a privilege as a songwriter to see your songs consistently in the Top Ten and it makes me feel pretty good. Thank you!”
