I was watching some Coronation Street videos on YouTube just now and I came across this little gem.
It's a song called Every Street's a Coronation Street sung by Max Bygraves and was released back in 1962. I must say I've never heard the song before. Have you? A bit of background to the song would be nice.
As it was recorded in 1962, the song does refer to the Coronation Street of the 1960s - the Rovers, the Mission Hall and the Corner Shop. There's also a reference to Ena Sharples and Elsie Tanner. And the person responsible for putting the song up on the site (Cymrobach1 which in Welsh means Little Welshman 1!) has done a clever slide show that runs concurrently with the lyrics of the song. Have a look and listen and the tune's very catchy!
