Back when One Direction was filming the music video for “What Makes You Beautiful” on a sunny beach in Malibu (must be nice), they sat down on the sand, gathered Kumbaya-style and sang Oasis’ classic “Wonderwall.”
In the video, Niall sits on a cooler playing the guitar like Noel Gallagher in his flashy aviators, while they all harmonize in front of the surf. The video is kind of retro One Direction (check out Liam’s hair!) but it’s still a good cover to wrap up this last bit of summer.
Their rendition has received harsh criticism from 1D haters who say British music has descended from the likes of The Beatles and Oasis to One Direction. @supersonicyy0uth tweeted: “one direction have covered Oasis is that why it’s raining so much, the sky is crying?”
Oasis singer Liam Gallagher has officially confirmed that the band is no longer around, according to CHARTattack.
Gallagher told Britain’s Times newspaper that the band are “done” and are “no longer.” He also said he was thinking about what his next musical move will be.
There was talk of Oasis continuing to make music without guitarist and main songwriter Noel Gallagher, who left the band earlier this year after a backstage fight with his brother. However, that appears to be out of the question now.
“I know [Oasis are done],” Liam Gallagher said in the Times article. “Without a doubt. And it’s a shame but that’s life. We had a good run at it. The thing about Oasis is [we ended it.] No one ended it for us. Which was pretty, kind of… cool.”
Oasis had a rocky 2009. Earlier in the year, Noel Gallagher said he wanted to release a solo album following Oasis’ tour for last year’s album Dig Out Your Soul. His brother was not a fan of that idea.
