Noel Gallagher was interviewed as part of the BBC's celebration of the Smiths' 30th anniversary. During the interview Noel had a hard time deciding on his favorite Smiths' song, though he eventually chose the original version of "Hand In Glove," revealing he's still listens to it from time to time, "it's still got something--it's dark, beautiful, kind of emotional, euphoria, with sadness to it, just got everything."

Gallagher didn't agree that without the Smiths there wouldn't be Oasis, but he did conclude that all music is derived from Elvis and the Beatles.  During that part of the discussion he made the following insightful comment:

"You know, the Smiths followed on from the Jam--it's quite fascinating to think that the Jam split in '83, that's when the Smiths first appeared, and then as soon as the Smiths kind of disappeared, the Stone Roses appear, and as soon as the Stone Roses disappear, Oasis appear, and it's almost like, there's some unseen, you know, somebody's moving the chess pieces around...we're all part of the same song I reckon."

Take a listen to the interview below - includes a great story about Noel meeting Morrissey backstage at an Oasis gig (first video below advanced to the Moz story) - plus Noel gives his thoughts on a Smiths' reunion and more.  Another segment from the same interview will air on the BBC next Sunday (May 12th).
