‘The Masterplan’ was a song released by a band at the height of its powers. As good as ‘Wonderwall’ is, to release this song as its B-side seems beyond belief now. Noel Gallagher has since acknowledged it as one of the best he’s written. I think Noel may have smiled when he said as much; not only is it sung by Noel, but also it doesn’t feature frontman Liam. Noel can be heard singing The Beatles’ ‘Octopus’s Garden’ towards the end of the song. A sense of brotherly love, indeed.
