** ''Talk On Corners'' ditched the instrumental songs almost completely (only "Paddy Mccarthy" was instrumental, it does contain minor vocals and is more dance than folk-instrumental; there's also a quite prominent instrumental outro on "When He's Not Around"). The other songs being straight pop, which lead to the BBC radio changing their classification of the band from Folk to Pop, which moved them to a different, more popular radio station which itself started to play their songs, beginning their rise to fame.

'''The Corrs''' are an Irish folk/pop/soft rock band, comprising of three sisters and one brother from the Corr family. Formed in 1990, they acheived major commercial success in 1995 and continued touring, recording and releasing popular albums for ten years before going on hiatus in 2005 to allow all four members time out to get married, have children, raise families and work on solo projects. After some doubt as to whether they'd ever reunite, the band announced they were working on a new album, which was released in late 2015. As usual, TheOtherWiki has a detailed breakdown of their music and career [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Corrs]].
