The Corrs - 4 siblings from Ireland - made it big in the UK anyway when I was a teenager and I loved them.

Just came across this clip of a concert from 2002 uploaded a few weeks back - its about 45 mins long, but at this quiet time of year I really enjoyed listening to it.


Theres a good cover of the Stones Ruby Tuesday with Ronnie Wood as a guest, plus a Bryan Adams cover with fellow Irishman Bono (who admitedly sounds like he has bit of a belly ache...)

I think Caroline is a great drummer and its great to see how they have incorporated traditional Celtic music into pop and made the violin and tin whistle "cool".

All talented musicians - all can play multi instruments
All talented vocalists
Talented songwriters

And gorgeous ladies too... (I think Doc will like the guy too  )

There are many other videos on youtube with whole concerts and of course all their singles. One song (cant remember which) has an official video with extensive DC3 flying complete with the sound of R1830 radials to satisfy the a.nut music lover!

Any other Corrs fans out there?

Good easy listening pop music, plus the ladies are easy on the eye, my wife and I went to a Corrs concert in Auckland back in 2003/04, they put on a good live show.

The song you're thinking about is called Breathless.

I used to like them when they came out first, and they recorded some great stuff in their day, but I think their time has passed (as a group, anyway).

Andrea seems to be pursuing a solo career and the others marrying and raising families. She has also been dabbling in acting, and played the lead in Jane Eyre in Dublin over a year ago. I went to see it, and was, I have to admit, sceptical about another singer-turned-actor, but I'm delighted to report that she actually stole the show! And for someone so small, she was certainly well-able to project her voice.

Certainly the girls are very attractive, even still, but I don't think Jim would get the gay vote. While his sisters got the looks, as he ages he's starting to resemble -- alarmingly -- Kim Jong Il. And he seems to be getting as paranoid as the former North Korean leader: he seems to subscribe to every conspiracy theory going, and has been an entertaining guest on TV chat shows here the last couple of years.

The fact that they are not recording together anymore probably pigeon-holes them and they've never had a chance to develop their style, which is a shame, but one thing this country has thankfully never been short of is musical talent (at least we have SOMETHING going for us . . . ) and there is always new talent coming on stream to take their place.

It's good stuff, although the "Silver Bullet" light product is lacking in flavor.

Oh yes. They sound good, they look good. As the years go by, I'm less interested in music that requires much thought or self-proclaimed intellect in order to be enjoyed. The Corrs fit the bill.

I used to listen to them a lot, and I still like them. But I haven't really listened to them for quite some time now..

Nothing's worse then flying the same registration twice, except flying it 4 times..

Bono always sounds like that and his voice gives me a headache.

The violin and tin whistle is always cool.  
I'll check them out later.

I quite liked The Corrs - have got a few of their albums. As someone else said, they were good, easy-listening pop. Saw them live twice, once at Wembley (if I recall correctly), and once at The Royal Albert Hall for a Princes Trust Charity "do" - that was great.

You're right there. B- I think.

Breathless was a good song, and I really liked "Radio" too. In addition, they seemed to put a good Irish jig-type song on each album which I liked. Haven't listened to them for a while though - maybe it's time to put them on again over Christmas.

Oh, and I can't help associating this sketch with them whenever I hear a Corrs song. Very funny.....

They were all from Dundalk , Co Louth not far from where I live. They were good back in the day and I went to a few of their concerts but they are rarely talked about here these days and their time has passed but they are still remembered with fond memories.

Not a fan per se, but I like them a lot.

The thing that's always amazed me with them, especially at their unplugged MTV gig, is how well they fit together, they're completely and totally in sync whether it's instruments-wise or lead/back vocals-wise. It's just unbelievably good work.


At 1:56 for example the way the vocals are handled is exceptional.

Some pretty incredible genetics on the women in that family!

Their music is pleasant enough, they have talent, though it doesn't blow me away in any way. Put it next to the Pogues, Planxty, Solas, and so much other stuff and it doesnt do that much for me.

Also, too bad Jim is an obsessed 9/11 truther....

I was a big fan of their album "Talk on Corners". One of those pop albums with, to ma anyway, not a bad track on it. Not really stuff to win critical acclaim but nice to play in your car. I remember in 1998 I used to go to my college music room and drum very badly along to it with the headphones on! Good times!

Many thanks.

P.S. My brother told me recerntly that "Talk on Corners" was produced by the same guy who used to produce the rock band Def Leppard. I don't know if that's true but I thought it was cool. I always thought the album was produced by David Foster.
