Part of me hates the Corrs and part grudgingly admits they’re alright – hey, especially that drummer. Look further than the front-girl, fellas. The Corrs’ flirtation with fame goes as far back as The Commitments in 1991, where Andrea scored a role as Jimmy Rabbitte’s younger sister. The other Corrs also received small roles. The Corrs were signed in late 1994 to the Atlantic label after impressing one of Michael Jackson’s producers. Their first album, Forgiven Not Forgotten, came out in 1995 and it was straight out with the tin whistles and fiddles. Yet despite their clever knack of marrying Irish traditions with pop sensibilities, the world at large wasn’t quite ready for the Corrs’ charms. It wasn’t until 1998 that their time arrived, when a Saint Patrick’s Day concert appearance at the Royal Albert Hall was broadcast and people realised that they could play, were extremely photogenic and had a few songs you could stomach.
That appearance featured Mick Fleetwood guesting on drums. Sure enough, a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams, done in a combination of Corrs and Todd Terry-style, found a whole load of copies of Talk On Corners in many a home, making it the highest-selling UK album on 1998. They’ve never looked back.
