Noel Gallagher only likes one song written by his arch-nemesis sibling Liam.
The 53-year-old rocker might have been at loggerheads with his former Oasis bandmate since they split in 2009, but he hasn't got a bad thing to say about his 48-year-old brother's work on 'Songbird' from their 2002 album 'Heathen Chemistry', which he hailed as "perfect".
Heaping praise on the tune - which Liam wrote as a tribute to his then-fiancée Nicole Appleton - Noel said: "I thought 'Songbird' by Liam was great. We did a demo of it and it was more like 'Love Me Do' by The Beatles, It's got a mouth organ on it and it sounds like The Beatles.
Maya Jama and Stormzy spark reunion rumours after they ‘spend Christmas together’
They split last August after four years togetherIt was claimed that the pair went their separate ways to focus on their careers, with TV and radio presenter Maya moving out of their shared South West London home, although Stormzy was forced to deny reports he’d cheated on her with fellow musician Jorja Smith.
"Then we took all the instruments off it and it became this acoustic thing that I think is perfect."
Liam went solo in 2017 and his older brother can't fathom why he doesn't play the song at his gigs.
Speaking on Matt Morgan's Podcast, he added: "The ironic thing about that song is that he doesn't even f****** play it now, work that one out.
"He's only got one tune and that's it, and he's not playing the f****** tune."
Noel had previously praised the track for its simplicity.
He said: "'Songbird' blew my head off when I first heard it because it was that f****** simple and that direct. But when Liam plays you a song he wants you to instantly f****** drop dead on the spot and then, when you come around, stab yourself in the heart and be in awe of the f****** sonic ability of the man."

Everything has changed.
Liam penned very few tracks during his time in the legendary Britpop group.
The first he penned for the 'Some Might Say' hitmakers was 'Little James' from their 2000 LP 'Standing on the Shoulder of Giants'.
Despite it only being performed once live on OPB Radio station in Portland, America, that same year, Liam claimed in 2018 that he'd liked to release a follow-up called 'Big James'.
The tune was written for his former stepson James Kerr - whose mother is Liam's ex-wife Patsy Kensit, whilst his father is Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr - and the 'Wall of Glass' hitmaker quipped: "The first song that I wrote was 'Little James', which was about my stepson at the time, he was called James and he was little. I might do a reprise, a new version called 'Big James.'"
