I always thought that it was only ever made for corrie. Never knew it was an acyual song.

There was a new version used for a few weeks in 1969 that is somewhat reminiscent of the one used now. No link to it unfortunately. I wonder if it was intended to replace the original and they got cold feet?

I just wish they would bring back the original instead of the homogenized version we hear today.
