The opening line of the first song ("Would You Be Happier") begins "Have you ever wondered where the story ends, and how it all began" which raises questions about the future of the band, especially as it's the opening track of their definitive Best of collection. Despite becoming one of the world's biggest pop groups in the late 1990s, the Corrs were almost transformed over-night from being one of the chicest groups around to being one of the un-coolest. Their mass appeal led to certain sections of their fan base rapidly searching for other distinctive types of music, and their third studio album In Blue was shunned by many. Despite what your opinion may be of the group, there is no disputing that Corrs classics such as "So Young" and "I Never Loved You Anyway" are catchy, pleasant tunes that succeed so well because they are so simple. All the other favourites are also on here, including "Only When I Sleep" and "Give Me Reason", as well as three tracks from 1999's Unplugged album ("Radio", "Everybody Hurts" and "Lough Erin Shore"). Although the collection closes with the unremarkable new track "Make You Mine", the penultimate song is "Dreams", the Fleetwood Mac track that finally brought them success. Even if it means swallowing your pride, now may be the time to rediscover the wonder of the Corrs.

I think I had So Young on single - mainly just for the picture of Andrea!

Also on Amazon..

Ok compilation, though it only realy covers the first 3 studio albums and the MTV unplugged album.

Amazon also have the laster Dreams: Ultimate Collection for 4 quid here -
amazon.co.uk/exe…QXU
which covers the later years too, beginning as aptly as the best of, with Goodbye (albiet a remix).
It will probably have less familiar songs on it, but the cover of Stars Go Blue with Bono is great, as is the Stones Ruby Tuesday along with Ronnie Wood. It also has the later singles such as Summer Sunshine, Angel and the no. 1 Breathless.

Personally, i'd say track down the albums, especially the overlooked mostly tradition covers album Home, but then i'm maybe a little biased (check the username...)

Go easy on the abuse now guys, I have a proper eclectic music taste...
