Released on 2nd October 1995, Oasis's biggest seller was 25 years old yesterday!

Some facts:

10 - Weeks at Number 1 in the UK
4 - Billboard chart peak

22 - Million copies sold worldwide

My 25th Anniversary coloured vinyl arrived literally just now (pic from the internet, mine is too big to upload!):




So, what order would you rank the album tracks? Mine is:

1. Cast No Shadow
2. Hey Now!
3. Don't Look Back In Anger
4. Wonderwall
5. Champagne Supernova
6. She's Electric
7. Morning Glory
8. Some Might Say
9. Roll With It
10. Hello
11. Untitled 1 & 2

How about you?

OCC 7/10/20

Singles
Wonderwall is not only the album's top selling track, but it's the band's biggest song of all time. It's sold 1.41 million copies (physical sales and downloads) and is also (What's The Story) Morning Glory?'s most streamed track, clocking up 217 million listens on streaming services.

In second spot is Oasis' other million-seller, Don't Look Back in Anger, which had the highest first-week sales of any WTSMG single – 227,000. In total, it's shifted just over a million – hitting the milestone in 2017 – and has managed 157.5 million plays since 2014.

Third most downloaded and streamed (What's The Story) Morning Glory? track was never actually a single! The popularity of the album's closing song, the dreamy and epic Champagne Supernova, has certainly endured – it's logged 274,000 downloads and notched up 85.2 million streams. Another album track claims fourth most popular of the digital age: She's Electric sold 127,000 downloads and accrued 46.4m streams.

Roll With It has a pure sales tally of 550,000 – 163,000 in its first week alone – and 29.8m plays, while the album's lead chart-topper Some Might Say outpaces it on streams (31.8m) but has a sales total of 482,000.

Album
Upon release on 2 October 1995, (What's The Story) Morning Glory? sold 268,554 copies in its opening week, crashing straight in at Number 1, beating Janet Jackson's Design of a Decade to the top spot. Within ten weeks it had sold a million copies, and spent 35 straight weeks in the Official Albums Chart Top 5, with ten of those weeks at Number 1.

By March 1996, after five months on sale, the (What's The Story) Morning Glory? album had passed the two-million mark, and just over a year later it hit three million copies sold. And it wasn't done there: it may have taken a while longer, but in June 2010, (What's The Story) Morning Glory? clocked up four million copies sold, becoming one of the biggest albums of all time. It's the third bestselling studio album of all time, behind the Beatles' Sgt Pepper and Adele's 21. (What's The Story) Morning Glory? has a current sales tally of 4.8 million.

Many people say that Oasis' debut album is their best. Yes it's very good but I personally think What's The Story is miles better. Am not really in to rock or Britpop but it's just an outstanding classic album with no weak tracks whatsoever.

The aul Americans didn’t get britpop due to the accents and lyrics so it was never as big. They never got oasis either truth be told.

I've never owned this on vinyl before because my brother has it, so thought duplicating it pointless. But I've now justified the purchase with the silver colour kink.gif wub.gif

The silver vinyl is lovely - I sold my old one on Saturday and got REM’s Out Of Time from the trade in!
