When It Comes to Favourite Group Band: The Corrs, The Legendary Irish Family Band

The Corrs has been one of my favourite group music. The Dundalk origin has been named one of the most successful family group that brings new sense in music industry. Consisted of Andrea, Caroline, Sharon and Jim, The Corrs have been there with typically Irish touch in some of their songs. There was time as well when i bought Irish thin whistle from Belgium and tried to play some The Corr’s songs with it. Feels good! I still have y whistle kept well in the house.

They also use to compose Irist folksongs with new touch thus it is more easy listening for their fans. In more than 30 years of their career, this group has been released some albums:

 

  • Forgiven, Not Forgotten (1995)
  • Talk on Corners (1997)
  • In Blue (2000)
  • Best of The Corrs (2001)
  • Borrowed Heaven (2004)
  • Home (2005)
  • Dreams: The Ultimate Corrs Collection (2006)
  • The Works (2007)
  • Original Album Series (2011)
  • White Light (2015)
  • Jupiter Calling (2017)

 

After long hiatus and split, The Corrs finally announced their new album in 2015 called “White Light” and in 2017 named “Jupiter Calling”. The Corrs have also conveyed some messages in their song from peace to love, from togetherness to spirit. Here are some songs of them with peace related message, mostly to advocate world peace and end the war.

“Harmony”

More walls since Good Friday he said
There’s nothing good about that
Down Bombay Street
There’s flames at our feet
And they burn like the Indian sunIt’s a far cry from home you land
Your brothers and sisters behind
This battle scar’s long
Like a mourning song
You know though you never had learnedNow we’ll never know
The man you’d have been
The one who brought peace
To a land born in pain
Taught love to a daughter
Kindness to a son
But you’ve ended before you’ve begun
You’ve ended before you’ve begunAnd a Main Street became the frontline
My beloved a casualty of time
It’s wrong, it’s wrong
No matter what side you’re on
To end them before they’ve begun

Now we’ll never know
The man you’d have been
The one who brought peace
To a land born in pain
Taught love to a daughter
Kindness to his son
But you’ve ended before you’ve begun
You’ve ended before you’ve begun

We’ll never know
The man you’d have been
The one who brought peace
To a land born in pain
Taught love to his daughter
Kindness to his son
But you’ve ended before you’ve begun
You’ve ended before you’ve begun

Let’s put it all behind us
Let’s live in harmony
Let’s put it all behind us
Let’s live in harmony
Let’s put it all behind us
Let’s live in harmony
Let’s put it all behind us
Let’s live in harmony
Let’s put it all behind us
Let’s live in harmony
Let’s put it all behind us
Let’s live in harmony
Let’s put it all behind us
Let’s live in harmony

“Borrowed Heaven”

All beauty all fade away, borrowed
All moonlight, return today, borrowed
All sunrise all shooting stars, borrowed
All earth bound bare feet in day
you know we’re standing onBorrowed borrowed heaven
Borrowed borrowed heavenAll heartache all rivers cried, borrowed
Don’t stay out too late tonight, borrowed
I love you don’t wanna die, borrowed
You taste like paradise, I know I’m breathing inBorrowed borrowed heaven
Borrowed borrowed heaven
Borrowed borrowed heaven
Borrowed borrowed heaven

You gave me life and I will give it back
But before I do, I’m gonna hold it tight
This is my prayer

All body, All skin all bone, borrowed
All silky, all smooth and warm, borrowed
All pleasure, all pain are one, borrowed
Almighty I stand alone
I know I’m living in

Borrowed borrowed heaven

“Ellis Island”

On the second Sunday
Annie be my guide
Liberty’s a welcome
To an aching eyeWe’ll grow up together
Far away from home
Crossed the sea and ocean
To the land of hopeKingstown to Liverpool
Crossing the Irish Sea
You gotta keep your wits on you
Where you lay your head
Six minute medical
Leaving no chalk on me
Goodbye Ellis Island, hello land of freeEvery man and woman
Every girl and boy
Sing out Ellis Island
Sing a song of hope
Sing for us together
Sing we’re not alone
Sing we’ll go back someday
Sing we will belong

When the leaves are falling
Sky is upon the ground
We will come together
Sing of Ireland

Thanking Ellis Island
Thank you, USA
You gave us a home here
Crying a brand new day

Queenstown to New York bay
Wild Atlantic Ocean
You gotta keep your wits on you
Where you lay your head
Six minute medical
Leaving no chalk on me
Goodbye Ellis Island, hello land of free

Every man and woman
Every girl and boy
Sing out Ellis Island
Sing a song of hope
Sing for us together
Sing we’re not alone
Sing we’ll go back someday
Sing we will belong

Sing for us together
Sing we’re not alone
Sing we’ll go back someday
Sing we will belong

Sing out Ellis Island
Sing we’re not alone
Sing we’ll go back someday
Sing we will belong
Sing we will belong

“Shame On You (To Keep My Love From Me)”

You left me thinking what a bore
I’m always stuck inside
I’ve got a feeling there is more
Than I’ve been left behind
A lot of pain a lot of noise
That these four walls hide
Happy faces go to war.
And dance upon the mines[Chorus]
Come join come join come join us
Your barely young come join us
Youd be a man come join come join us
You’re big and strong come join usYou planted me in foreign ground
A pen within a hand
At least I am not on my own
In hell I have a friend
I know I find (innocence) ashamed?
It isn’t my crusade
Dirty faces in a war
Asleep in open graves

Come join come join come join us
Your barely young come join us
You’ll be a man come join come join us
Your big and strong come join us
Shame on you shame on you shame on you
To keep my love from me-shame on you
Shame on you shame on you
To keep my love from me
Shame on you shame on you shame on you
To keep my love from me

Shame on you-close your eyes to see shame on you shame on you
Shame on you shame on you shame on you
To keep my love from me
When you close your eyes to see
You block your heart to me?
You changed his name to a number?
But he survives a child
