This was a very interesting read! It's funny to me how many of these huge music acts hate their most popular songs. I remember reading something similar about how the members of Radiohead all despise "Creep" despite it being their breakthrough single that made them a household name.

Thanks for sharing smile

I actually knew that Oasis really disliked Wonderwall. It's probably the only Oasis song I listen to myself, and I've heard and read that every time they get a request for it that they groan because it's not really inline with their usual style and what they would typically write for a song. Not sure if that's entirely true or just hearsay, but it I can't imagine making a song that wasn't representative of your usual style or flavour, and perhaps was a bit more experimental, and it becomes a huge breakthrough.

On the flip side, at least Oasis had a breakthrough! And I will probably always like Wonderwall (I just really like how it's written). Hopefully Oasis' opinion of it will soften with time.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
