God Bless Q Magazine (and its readers)

Oasis's "Live Forever" looks all set to live up to its title after being voted the greatest song ever. The 12-year-old single - the first to demonstrate that the Gallagher brothers could have a tender side as well as bravado and swagger - has beaten classic tracks by the Beatles, U2 and Queen in the Q magazine poll of music fans to identify the all-time greats. "Live Forever doesn't date. It satisfies a timeless need for communal joy," The Sun quoted a Q magazine spokesman as saying. "People said after 'Live Forever', 'Where are you gonna go after that?' I was like, 'I don't think it's that good.' I think I can do better," Noel Gallagher said.
Oasis also claimed the second spot with their hit 'Wonderwall', while two other songs, played by the band 'Don't Look Back In Anger' and 'Champagne Supernova', also made the top 100. Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' was third in the poll.
While the Beatles' 'A Day In The Life' and U2's 'One' came in fourth and fifth place respectively. The Beatles claimed six places in the top 100 songs, the most by any band.
The list of the top ten 'All-time Top 100', as per Q magazine is:

1 Live Forever - Oasis
2 Wonderwall - Oasis
3 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
4 A Day In The Life - The Beatles
5 One - U2
6 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
7 Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division
8 Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin
9 Bitter Sweet Symphony - The Verve
10 Paranoid Android - Radiohead

U2 rule!
