Great thread! Here are some of my favourites...|
I've been listening to Judy a lot these days - until recently I mostly skipped the song whenever I had my iTunes/Spotify on shuffle. Recently I've jumped onto the Netflix bandwagon and one of the first shows I watched on the platform is called Dead to Me. One of the main characters is called Judy (played by Linda Cardellini), and to some extent the lyrics to the Corrs song kinda fit the way I perceive the character
Other bonus/hidden tracks I really enjoy include Make You Mine, Love In the Milky Way (I adore their live performance of the song in Madrid in 1997 and I strongly believe Andrea should bring back that feather boa one way or another ), Looking In the Eyes of Love, Miracle (I'm forever grateful I bought my copy of Borrowed Heaven in Australia!), and of corrs Mystery of You. I already loved it when we only had that brief snippet of their performance on RTE, and I love it even more now we have access to the full version thanks to our very own Miguel.
The other day to Canto alla Vita (which they performed with Josh Groban) came on shuffle, and it hit me that maybe I should give the song more credit than I usually do. It's an underrated piece.
Speaking of 'unreleased' songs, I'm a big fan of ABBA and I'm still quite disappointed that the band's cover of The Winner Takes It All is not as good as it should've been. I do think they should've done some other song instead of that one...
When it comes to Andrea's and Sharon's solo endeavours, Andy's The Crystal Ship is one of the finest covers I've heard...ever:
Sharon's Me and My Teddy Bear is one of my go-to Christmas songs, and the video always makes me smile:
I agree with you, Wendy, on Oh Brother. It's a great song, as is Andrea's version of She Moved Through the Fair on the Celtic Skies album. The latter is very much haunting.
As for performances...there are far too many, but my absolute favourite has to be this performance of All the Love In the World on BBC Radio 2, backed by the RTE Concert Orchestra:
Just...beautiful. There are no other words.
I also like this version of Dreams that they performed on the same occasion, which sounds more similar to Fleetwoood Mac's original version with a few Corrs twists:
I've been listening to Queen a lot since watching Bohemian Rhapsody, and with that my appreciation for Andrea's version of Is This the World We Created? (that she performed with Brian May on the guitar) has grown even more. Not many can pull off a Queen cover, but I think Andrea did the song justice:
The band's Tokyo gig in 1996 is one of my all-time favourite Corrs live gigs, and I really wish there was a DVD of the concert. We don't often hear songs from FNF (except Runaway and Toss the Feathers) being performed live, and the Tokyo gig just highlights how great this record really is: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1F5150F10AB3F50C
For something more recent, I should mention Andrea's performance of David Bowie's Starman (with Gary Kemp on the guitar) at the 2016 IOW Fest:
