Joaquín Ramón Martínez Sabina, known artistically as Joaquín Sabina, is a singer and poet from the Andalusia region of southern Spain. He has released fourteen studio albums, two live albums, three compilation albums, he performed both solo and with a group for his live albums, performing with Javier Krahe and Alberto Pérez in La mandrágora, the group Viceversa in a 1986 concert, with Joan Manuel Serrat in Dos pájaros de un tiro. Sabina suffered a stroke in 2001 and although he physically recovered, he entered a deep depression which resulted in a four-year-long concert hiatus, he recovered and released his eighteenth album, Alivio de Luto, in November 2005 and in 2009 he released his album, Vinagre y rosas. In 2012 he released his latest album in collaboration with Joan Manuel Serrat: La Orquesta Del Titanic. Joaquín Sabina was born in the Province of Jaén, he is the second son of Jerónimo Martínez Gallego. His father was a policeman, he attended a Carmelite primary school and he started writing his first poems and composing music at the age of 14.
He was part of a band called Merry Youngs which imitated singers such as Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Little Richard, as well as many others. He attended a high school run by the Salesians of Don Bosco and during this period he began reading works by Fray Luis de León, Jorge Manrique, José Hierro, Marcel Proust, James Joyce and Herbert Marcuse. After completing high school, his father wanted him to follow in his footsteps and become a police officer but he refused, saying that he preferred the guitar. In his song "La del pirata cojo" he says he fantasizes about living different lives, but he would not joke about becoming a police officer, he enrolled in the University of Granada, reading philology in the faculty. There, he read the poetry of César Vallejo. Sabina lived at first with a woman started to prepare his thesis, his revolutionary ideology led him to be related to the anti-fascist groups. In 1970, he began collaborating with the magazine Poesía 70, sharing pages with Carlos Cano and Luis Eduardo Aute, he left the university, going into exile in London using a fake passport under the name Mariano Zugasti, to avoid persecution from Francisco Franco's government after throwing a Molotov cocktail into a government building.
That same year, his father received an order to arrest Sabina due to his anti-Franco ideals. In 1975, Sabina started singing at local bars. In a local bar called "Mexicano-Taverna" Sabina performed in the presence of George Harrison, celebrating his birthday; the ex-Beatle gave Sabina a five-pound note as tip, which Sabina still preserves to this day. When Franco's dictatorship ended in 1975, Sabina returned to Spain and joined the army but, feeling imprisoned, he got married in order to be able to sleep outside the barracks. Sabina's first album, Inventario was released in 1978 by a small label Movieplay, he describes this album "as his own version of death metal", but the album went unnoticed. Afterwards, he moved to the powerful released Malas compañías; this album gave Sabina his first number-one hit single "Pongamos que hablo de Madrid", the artist attained wide recognition. He released a live album called La mandrágora, sharing the spotlight with bandmates Javier Krahe and Alberto Pérez; the trio enjoyed great popularity due to their participation in a TV program.
La Mandrágora was controversial due to the political content of the lyrics. Sabina released his third album Ruleta Rusa in 1984. In this album the singer evolved from the typical singer-songwriter style to Rock music with a harder sound and with presence of new instruments such as electric guitars. One of the most popular songs of this album was "Pisa el acelerador", the first maxi single of this album. In 1985 Sabina left CBS and released, this time under Ariola, Juez y Parte his fourth studio album in which he teamed up with the band Viceversa, led by Pancho Varona, who would turn into one of his closest friends and producer of many of Sabina's future albums. In this release, which shows a more modern production with the use of synthesisers and keyboards, it was included another popular song entitled "Princesa", arguably the most popular one of this release, his political views led him to take part in the anti-NATO movement. He released Joaquín Sabina y Viceversa en directo, his first live album, which turned into his commercial breakthrough.
This album, recorded in the Salamanca theatre in Madrid, the singer collaborated with other singers such as Javier Krahe, Javier Gurruchaga, Luis Eduardo Aute amongst others. In 1987 Sabina released his fifth studio album, Dulce Hotel, which sold a large number of records in Spain. One of the most popular songs of this record was the track "Así estoy yo sin ti" for, released a promotional video, the first one of his musical career; that success led to his next album El Hombre del Traje Gris, in which he would count with Antonio García de Diego, a new collaborator and another of his fellow friends. After releasing this album, Sabina undertook a successful tour in Latin America; this record was followed by the release of Mentiras Piadosas in 1990. Two years in 1992, the performer reached a new sales record with the release of Física y Química, which sold more than one million copies thanks to the smash hit "Y nos die
Enrique "Ricky" Martín Morales is a Puerto Rican singer and author. He is regarded as the king of Latin pop, he holds dual Spanish citizenship. Martin began his career at age 12 with the all-boy pop group Menudo. After five years with the group, he released several Spanish-language solo albums throughout the 1990s. Since the beginning of his solo career in 1991, Ricky Martin has sold over 70 million albums, making him one of the best-selling Latin music artists of all time, he acted on stage and on TV in Mexico, where he achieved modest stardom. In 1994, he appeared on the US TV soap opera General Hospital. In early 1999, after releasing several albums in Spanish, Martin performed "The Cup of Life" at the 41st Annual Grammy Awards show, which became a catalyst in bringing Latin pop to the forefront of the U. S. music scene. Following its success, Martin released "Livin' la Vida Loca", which helped him attain enormous success worldwide, his first English-language album, has sold 15 million copies and it's his best selling album to date.
His other studio albums include: Me Amarás, A Medio Vivir, Sound Loaded, Almas del Silencio, Life, Música + Alma + Sexo, A Quien Quiera Escuchar. In 2018, he portrayed Antonio D'Amico on The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story for which he received a nomination for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. Martin was born on December 24, 1971, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Nereida Morales, an accountant, Enrique Martín Negroni, a psychologist; the second youngest of six children, he has one sister. His parents divorced when he was two years old, Martin spent much of his childhood shifting between his father's home in the suburbs of University Gardens, a suburban middle-class neighborhood of San Juan, his paternal grandmother's house nearby. Martin has two older maternal half-brothers, Fernando and Ángel Fernández, two older paternal half-brothers and Daniel Martín, a younger paternal half-sister, Vanessa Martín. Martin, in an interview with newspaper ABC, described his origins as Spanish, of Basque and Canarian descent and that the Martín's left Spain for Puerto Rico in 1779.
He has some Corsican heritage through his paternal grandmother. Martin was an altar boy throughout his childhood, he began singing at age 6. His mother's side of the family was musically inclined, his maternal grandfather was a poet, which inspired young Martin to write songs. Martin reflected on his time spent with his family as a child: "Every time I find myself in front of an audience, be it twenty people or one hundred thousand, once again I feel the energy that consumed me back at the family gatherings of my youth." After discovering, with his father, a newspaper advertisement about auditions for commercials, 9-year-old Martin began appearing in Puerto Rican television commercials for products such as soft drinks and fast-food restaurants. In a year and a half, he starred in 11 commercials. After achieving modest fame in Puerto Rico for his work in television commercials, Martin auditioned for membership in the Puerto Rican boy band Menudo. Although the executives enjoyed his dancing and singing at his first two auditions, Martin was rejected because he was too short.
By the third audition, his persistence impressed executives, in 1984, 12-year-old Martin became a member. A month after joining Menudo, he made his debut performance with the group at the Luis A. Ferré Performing Arts Center in San Juan. During this performance, he inadvertently disobeyed the choreography by walking around the stage, when it was planned that he would stay still, was chastised by the band manager after the show: "The mistake was such a big deal that from that moment on, never again did I move when I wasn't supposed to move... That was the discipline of Menudo: You either did things the way you were told or you were not part of the group." The song "Asignatura Pendiente" from Almas del Silencio was inspired by the first time Martin left Puerto Rico to tour with Menudo. Although Martin enjoyed traveling and performing onstage with Menudo, he found the band's busy schedule and strict management exhausting, reflected that the experience "cost" him his childhood, he considered leaving the group while on tour in Brazil, but decided to stay out of fear of media backlash and being sued for breach of contract.
Martin began struggling with his sexuality, noting the stark contrast between his status as a sex symbol and his own emotions. Despite this, Martin acknowledged his "opportunity to have so many amazing experiences with so many amazing people" during his time with the group, he developed an interest in philanthropy when the group became UNICEF ambassadors working with impoverished children in third world countries. His experiences as an ambassador affected him and inspired him to continue working with charities in life. By 1987, Menudo's record sales began to decline, the group changed its image, adopting an edgier look and performing more rock-influenced songs; the band released the album Somos Los Hijos del Rock in Spanish, to appeal to the Menudo's Filipino fanbase, the group released I
Radio is the technology of signalling or communicating using radio waves. Radio waves are electromagnetic waves of frequency between 300 gigahertz, they are generated by an electronic device called a transmitter connected to an antenna which radiates the waves, received by a radio receiver connected to another antenna. Radio is widely used in modern technology, in radio communication, radio navigation, remote control, remote sensing and other applications. In radio communication, used in radio and television broadcasting, cell phones, two-way radios, wireless networking and satellite communication among numerous other uses, radio waves are used to carry information across space from a transmitter to a receiver, by modulating the radio signal in the transmitter. In radar, used to locate and track objects like aircraft, ships and missiles, a beam of radio waves emitted by a radar transmitter reflects off the target object, the reflected waves reveal the object's location. In radio navigation systems such as GPS and VOR, a mobile receiver receives radio signals from navigational radio beacons whose position is known, by measuring the arrival time of the radio waves the receiver can calculate its position on Earth.
In wireless remote control devices like drones, garage door openers, keyless entry systems, radio signals transmitted from a controller device control the actions of a remote device. Applications of radio waves which do not involve transmitting the waves significant distances, such as RF heating used in industrial processes and microwave ovens, medical uses such as diathermy and MRI machines, are not called radio; the noun radio is used to mean a broadcast radio receiver. Radio waves were first identified and studied by German physicist Heinrich Hertz in 1886; the first practical radio transmitters and receivers were developed around 1895-6 by Italian Guglielmo Marconi, radio began to be used commercially around 1900. To prevent interference between users, the emission of radio waves is regulated by law, coordinated by an international body called the International Telecommunications Union, which allocates frequency bands in the radio spectrum for different uses. Radio waves are radiated by electric charges undergoing acceleration.
They are generated artificially by time varying electric currents, consisting of electrons flowing back and forth in a metal conductor called an antenna. In transmission, a transmitter generates an alternating current of radio frequency, applied to an antenna; the antenna radiates the power in the current as radio waves. When the waves strike the antenna of a radio receiver, they push the electrons in the metal back and forth, inducing a tiny alternating current; the radio receiver connected to the receiving antenna detects this oscillating current and amplifies it. As they travel further from the transmitting antenna, radio waves spread out so their signal strength decreases, so radio transmissions can only be received within a limited range of the transmitter, the distance depending on the transmitter power, antenna radiation pattern, receiver sensitivity, noise level, presence of obstructions between transmitter and receiver. An omnidirectional antenna transmits or receives radio waves in all directions, while a directional antenna or high gain antenna transmits radio waves in a beam in a particular direction, or receives waves from only one direction.
Radio waves travel through a vacuum at the speed of light, in air at close to the speed of light, so the wavelength of a radio wave, the distance in meters between adjacent crests of the wave, is inversely proportional to its frequency. In radio communication systems, information is carried across space using radio waves. At the sending end, the information to be sent is converted by some type of transducer to a time-varying electrical signal called the modulation signal; the modulation signal may be an audio signal representing sound from a microphone, a video signal representing moving images from a video camera, or a digital signal consisting of a sequence of bits representing binary data from a computer. The modulation signal is applied to a radio transmitter. In the transmitter, an electronic oscillator generates an alternating current oscillating at a radio frequency, called the carrier wave because it serves to "carry" the information through the air; the information signal is used to modulate the carrier, varying some aspect of the carrier wave, impressing the information on the carrier.
Different radio systems use different modulation methods: AM - in an AM transmitter, the amplitude of the radio carrier wave is varied by the modulation signal. FM - in an FM transmitter, the frequency of the radio carrier wave is varied by the modulation signal. FSK - used in wireless digital devices to transmit digital signals, the frequency of the carrier wave is shifted periodically between two frequencies that represent the two binary digits, 0 and 1, to transmit a sequence of bits. OFDM - a family of complicated digital modulation methods widely used in high bandwidth systems such as WiFi networks, digital television broadcasting, digital audio broadcasting to transmit digital data using a minimum of radio spectrum bandwidth. OFDM has higher spectral efficiency and more resistance to fading than AM or FM. Multiple radio carrier waves spaced in frequency are transmitted within the radio channel, with each carrier modulated with bits from the incoming bitstream
Luz Casal is a Spanish pop singer. She grew up in neighbouring Boimorto, took singing and ballet classes, moved to Madrid to pursue a career as a musician, she became famous in the early 1980s, remained an important figure in Spanish pop music all through said decade and beyond, with her sound maturing towards soft adult pop.

From that moment on, she started composing her first songs, of which she recorded ten, but they were not released. In these years, she made her only appearance in the theatre, taking the role of Raquel Meller in the musical "Las Divinas", performed in the Reina Victoria theatre in Madrid. In 1980 she released her first single with a multinational company, "El ascensor", a song with a strong Reggae flavour as a tribute to Bob Marley, she presented this song in "Tocata", a popular music show in RTVE. After that she took part in many festivals held in a lot of countries and took dance classes with Karen Taft, Arnold Taraborelli, Lindsay Kemp, Merche Esmeralda and Goyo Montero. In 1981, seeking less control over her private life, she joined the company Zafiro and took part in the live album published by the group Leño; the following year she started the recording of her first solo album, en Madrid and Amsterdam, released in September 1982 and was named: "Luz". The album was produced by Carlos Narea, included songs composed by herself and by Roque Navaja.
She appeared for the first time in a TV program, participated in a book-album of the poet Xaime Noguerol. In 1983 she recorded the video of the Maxi single "No aguanto más" she started making live performances and took part in the tour The rock of a summer night, with Miguel Ríos and Leño, with whom she performed in 35 cities of Spain. In 1984 she released her second album, "Los ojos del gato", recorded in Spain and Germany; some of the songs, written by Ramoncín and Hilario Camacho, started being listened in the whole Europe.

Luz III, released a y year in 1985, contains a popular track called "Rufino", by Carmen Santonja; that year she performed with artists from other countries. In 1986 she performed again for Czech Television. In Germany she recorded the song "The water is life", for an environmental campaign, with stars such as Mark Knopfler. In 1987 she recorded an a capella song with the group'The Christians' for a television program and in May of that year, her next album "Quiéreme aunque te duela", was launched, in which she started to be less of a rocker and discovered herself as a great ballad performer, ballads that would be the greatest hits of that release.
The album included her smash hit "A Cada Paso", which became her breakout hit in Latin-America, it climbed to the number one position in Argentina, Chile and Mexico. She participated in the TV program "¡Qué noche la de aquel año!", hosted by Miguel Ríos she travelled to México and New York City. In 1988 she appeared in the TV program "Viaje con nosotros", by Javier Gurruchaga, in a benefit gig in Seville, she performed a Tango version of Quiereme aunque te duela. In 1989 Luz Casal released her new company Hispavox, the album "V" in which Luz counted with the production of Paco Trinidad and Chucho Merchán, a habitual musician of Eurythmics; the album, which sold over 300,000 copies and was her definitive leap to stardom, includes two of
Philip David Charles Collins is an English drummer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actor. He was the drummer and singer of the rock band Genesis, is a solo artist. Between 1982 and 1989, Collins scored three UK and seven US number-one singles in his solo career; when his work with Genesis, his work with other artists, as well as his solo career is totalled, Collins had more US Top 40 singles than any other artist during the 1980s. His most successful singles from the period include "In the Air Tonight", "Against All Odds", "One More Night", "Sussudio", "Two Hearts" and "Another Day in Paradise". Born and raised in west London, Collins played drums from the age of five and completed drama school training, which secured him various roles as a child actor, he pursued a music career, joining Genesis in 1970 as their drummer and becoming lead singer in 1975 following the departure of Peter Gabriel. Collins began a solo career in the 1980s inspired by his marital breakdown and love of soul music, releasing a series of successful albums, including Face Value, No Jacket Required, and...
But Seriously. Collins became "one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the'80s and beyond", he became known for a distinctive gated reverb drum sound on many of his recordings. In 1996, Collins left Genesis to focus on solo work, he rejoined Genesis for their Turn It On Again Tour in 2007. Following a five-year retirement to focus on his family life, Collins released an autobiography and began his Not Dead Yet Tour, which runs from June 2017 until October 2019. Collins's discography includes eight studio albums that have sold 33.5 million certified units in the US and an estimated 150 million worldwide, making him one of the world's best-selling artists. He is one of only three recording artists, along with Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson, who have sold over 100 million records worldwide both as solo artists and separately as principal members of a band, he has won eight Grammy Awards, six Brit Awards—winning Best British Male three times—two Golden Globe Awards, one Academy Award, a Disney Legend Award.
He has received six Ivor Novello Awards from the British Academy of Songwriters and Authors, including the International Achievement Award. He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999, was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Genesis in 2010, the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 2012, the Classic Drummer Hall of Fame in 2013. Philip David Charles Collins was born on 30 January 1951 in Chiswick, England, to Greville Philip Austin Collins, an insurance agent, Winifred June Collins, a theatrical agent, he was one of two boys, his brother being Clive Collins, who would become a noted cartoonist. He was given a toy drum kit for Christmas, his uncle made him a makeshift set that he used regularly. As Collins grew older, these were followed by more complete sets bought by his parents, he practiced by playing with music on the radio. According to Barbara Speake, founder of the eponymous stage school Collins attended, "Phil was always special.
His professional acting training began at the age of 14, at the Barbara Speake Stage School, a fee-paying but non-selective independent school in East Acton, west London, whose talent agency had been established by his mother. Collins studied drum rudiments as a teenager, first learning basic rudiments under Lloyd Ryan and studying further under Frank King. Collins recalled: "Rudiments I found very helpful – much more helpful than anything else because they're used all the time. In any kind of funk or jazz drumming, the rudiments are always there." He never learned to read and write conventional musical notation and instead used a system he devised himself. He regretted this, saying: "I never came to grips with the music. I should have stuck with it. I've always felt. For me, good enough, but that attitude is bad." Ryan recalled: "Phil always had a problem with reading. That was always a big problem for him. That's a shame because reading drum music isn't that difficult."The Beatles were a major early influence on Collins, including their drummer Ringo Starr.
He followed the lesser-known London band the Action, whose drummer he would copy and whose work introduced him to the soul music of Motown and Stax Records. Collins was influenced by the jazz and big band drummer Buddy Rich, whose opinion on the importance of the hi-hat prompted him to stop using two bass drums and start using the hi-hat. While attending Chiswick County School for Boys, Collins formed a band called the Real Thing, joined the Freehold, with whom he wrote his first song, "Lying Crying Dying". Collins began a career as a child actor while at the Barbara Speake Stage School and won his first major role as the Artful Dodger in the London stage production of Oliver!, the musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist. He was an extra in the Beatles' film A Hard Day's Night among the screaming teenagers during the television concert sequence, filmed at Scala Theatre in central London; this was followed by a role in Calamity the Cow, produced by the Children's Film Foundation.
Luis Miguel González Bosé known as Miguel Bosé, is a Panamanian-born Spanish pop new wave musician and actor. Bosé became an honorary Colombian citizen in 2010. Bosé was born in the San Fernando Hospital in Panama City, the son of Italian actress Lucia Bosè and Spanish bullfighter Luis Miguel Dominguín, he is a cousin to the late Carmen Ordóñez, a Spanish celebrity in the bullfighting world. Additionally, Bosé grew up surrounded by art and culture: Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway were close friends of the family; the film director Luchino Visconti was his godfather while Pablo Picasso was the godfather to his sister Paola Dominguin. Propelled by his famous family and their friends, in 1971, Bosé started a career as an actor, participating in various movies, he won spots on the basis of his talent and good looks alone, rather than his name, he did study serious acting as well as dancing and singing. However, he did not make that many films, in 1975 he decided a career change was due and started exploring his talents as a singer.
With the assistance of Camilo Blanes he recorded his first singles. Two years in 1977, Bosé signed a contract with CBS Records, he remained with them until 1984. Between 1977 and 1982, Bosè was a major teen idol in Italy, Southern Europe and in all Latin America, he had 7 top ten hits in a disco/new wave trend that earned him a secure spot in every televised song festival held in the aforementioned countries, but, by 1983, his star had waned in Italy, he performed there again until the 2000s, retreating to Latin American markets instead. In 1983, 1984, 1985, he participated in the "Llena Tu Cabeza De Rock" television specials on Puerto Rico WAPA-TV, but it was in 1985 that he became an international superstar, when his song "Amante bandido" rose to the top of the charts all over Latin America and in Spain, while he started to decline in Italy. The video to that song became one of the most seen Spanish music videos, with Bose playing both a Superman style superhero and an Indiana Jones type of adventurer in it.
On March 20, 2007, to celebrate his 30 years as a singer, he released Papito, an album that contains remakes of his previous songs, re-interpreted in duets with Juanes, Alejandro Sanz, Ivete Sangalo, Laura Pausini, Julieta Venegas, Ricky Martin, Amaia Montero, Michael Stipe from R. E. M. along with many other singers. Three singles were released off Papito: the first is a re-make of his hit "Nena", featuring Mexican superstar Paulina Rubio; the third single "Como un lobo" featured his niece Bimba Bosé. "Nena" was by far the most successful single off the album. It was nominated for a Latin Grammy for best song and became the best selling download of Spain in 2007. In the same year, Bosé was awarded the Billboard Latin Music Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Corrs are an Irish band that combine pop rock with traditional Irish themes within their music. The group consists of the Corr siblings, Sharon and Jim, they are from County Louth, Ireland. The Corrs have released seven studio albums and numerous singles, which have reached Platinum in many countries, have sold 40 million albums worldwide. Talk on Corners, their most successful album to date, reached multi-Platinum status in Australia, in the UK it was the highest selling album of 1998; the band is one of only a handful of acts who have held the top two positions in the UK album charts, with Talk on Corners at number one and Forgiven, Not Forgotten at number two. The latter was the third highest selling album in Australia in 1996, their third studio album, In Blue, went to number one in seventeen countries. The Corrs have been involved in philanthropic activities, they have performed in numerous charity concerts such as The Prince's Trust event in 2004 and Live 8 alongside Bono of U2 in 2005.
The same year, they were awarded honorary MBEs for their contributions to charity. The band was inactive for 10 years because Jim and Caroline were raising families, while Andrea and Sharon were pursuing solo careers while raising families of their own. According to Sharon, it was uncertain. However, rumours of a reunion sparked in early 2015 and in a radio interview with Chris Evans in June 2015, Andrea confirmed that The Corrs were working on a new album and would play the BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park festival, their sixth studio album, White Light, was released on 27 November 2015, was accompanied by a European tour. After two years, their seventh studio album, Jupiter Calling, was released on 10 November 2017; the Corrs are from County Louth in Ireland. While Caroline and Andrea were still attending school and Sharon began playing as a duo at McManus's, their aunt's pub. In 1990, Jim and Sharon added their younger siblings, their career took off in 1991. Jim and Caroline each had small parts as musicians, while Andrea had a speaking part as Sharon Rabbitte.
John Hughes noticed them when they agreed to become their manager. In 1994, the American ambassador to Ireland, Jean Kennedy Smith, invited them to perform at the 1994 FIFA World Cup in Boston after seeing them play a gig at Whelan's Music Bar in Dublin. After an appearance at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, United States, The Corrs joined Celine Dion's worldwide Falling Into You Around the World Tour as a supporting act. Jason Flom, Atlantic Records's head of A&R, recommended that they meet David Foster, a Canadian musician, producer and arranger; the Corrs played live for Foster and he agreed to sign them to Atlantic Records. They extended their stay in the US for over five months to record their debut album, Not Forgotten, it featured six instrumental selections among its Celtic-influenced tracks. The album sold well in Ireland, Japan and Spain. Major success in the US and the UK, was not forthcoming; the album reached Platinum status in the UK and Australia, 4× Platinum in Ireland, making it one of the most successful debuts by an Irish group.
The Corrs' next album, 1997's Talk on Corners, was produced by Glen Ballard, respected for his collaboration with Alanis Morissette. The Corrs collaborated with Carole Bayer Sager, Oliver Leiber, Rick Nowels and Billy Steinberg, it was successful in Ireland and the UK and entered the Australian album charts at number 3. After the band recorded a version of "Dreams" for a Fleetwood Mac tribute album, they re-released Talk on Corners, with new remixes of "What Can I Do?", "So Young" and "Runaway".
