"Wonderwall" is a song by English rock band Oasis, written by the
band's guitarist and main songwriter Noel Gallagher. Released as the
third single from (What's the Story) Morning Glory? in October 1995,
"Wonderwall" peaked at number two in the UK Singles Charts and proved
to be their American breakthrough, reaching number eight on the Hot 100
singles chart and giving them their only top-ten hit in the U.S. thus
far. It also proved a hit in Australia, reaching number one in February
1996. "Wonderwall" is perhaps their most popular song, despite the fact
that British TV stars Robson & Jerome's "I Believe"/"Up on the
Roof" kept it out of the top slot. "Wonderwall" continues to have
enduring popularity in Oasis's canon; as of 2008, it was 76th in the
UK's list of best-selling singles, and has now sold over a million
copies in single and download sales in the UK, where it went platinum.
The song is also included on their compilation album Stop the Clocks.
