Oasisâ€™ Noel Gallagher has admitted he completely ripped off Burt Bacharach for his song â€˜Half The World Awayâ€™ â€“ and is amazed he hasnâ€™t been sued over it.
The song was a B-Side to early Oasis single 'Slide Away', but gained wider exposure as the theme-tune to BBC TV sit-com The Royle Family.
However, Gallagher has now admitted the tune is a straight copy of Bacharach and Davidâ€™s â€˜This Guyâ€™s In Love With Youâ€™.
He laughs, â€œIt sounds exactly the same. I'm surprised he hasn't sued me yet.â€
Good job youâ€™ve kept it a secret Noel. Songwriter my arse!
