Yes indeed, the melody for the Oasis tune is a definite rip-off of 'I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing' - I read Noel responded at the time by saying that he drinks Pepsi :rofl:

Most Oasis tunes are rip off of other material if you listen hard enough.. With nearly all their songs, you find yourself thinking... "Where have i heard this before?"

Cigarettes and alcohol is probably onother one of their 'greatest' rip offs.... T-rex 'Get it on' with a bit more distortion.





That said.... I think Oasis are pretty great. :D

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

'Whatever' (the beginning "I'm free to be whatever I") is a exactly the same melody as Neil Innes' 'How Sweet to be an Idiot' :D





However I do like some Oasis tunes quite a lot :D
