One quarantined dad has seemingly had enough of kids — and childish adults — not washing their hands, and, as a result, he’s started singing hilarious hand-washing versions of ’90s Britpop tracks like “Wonderwall” and “Champagne Supernova,” only this time, with an emphasis on soap and washing. The thing is, that quarantined dad just happens to be the guy who famously sang those songs in the ’90s in the first place — Liam Gallagher.
In case you missed it, the former frontman of Oasis (that band you loved to hate or hated to love back in high school) has hit up Instagram with new versions of iconic songs, but now, you’ve got “Wonderwash” (formerly “Wonderwall”) “Champagne Soap-er Nova” (formerly “Champagne Supernova”) and “Soapersonic” (formerly “Supersonic.”)
Rocking what can only be described as a “Hey Jude” beard, Liam Gallagher has posted several Instagram videos of himself in front of his sink, attacking Oasis hits, now with new lyrics to encourage handwashing. And, just in case you were worried that Gallagher has suddenly become more wholesome and family-friendly; he’s still swearing quite a lot in these videos and punctuating the verses and choruses with plenty of f-bombs, including the phrase, “wash your hands you little fuckers.”
For the record, Liam didn’t write the songs “Wonderwall” or “Champagne Supernova,”; that credit goes to his brother Noel Gallagher, the guitarist and primary songwriter for the now-defunct band Oasis. (Full disclosure, as a disciple of dad rock, I have rocked out to Liam’s newer solo albums while mowing the lawn very recently.) That said, these songs are classic for a reason and it seems like now, Liam can totally take credit for the authorship of “Wonderwash” and “Champagne Soap-er Nova.”
Maybe, he’s gonna be the one that saves us?
