Video interview with Eric Spear, composer of Corrie theme tune

There's a beautiful piece of archive film online from ITV today. It's an interview with Eric Spear, the man who composed the Coronation Street theme tune. 

He talks about how and why he was commissioned to compose the theme tune for the show. It's definitely worth watching and it's here.

The theme tune variations we've found so far are as follows:

Sing Me a Memory - the version with words
Soulful funk version by The Flaming Muchachos
Ska reggae version by Izzy Royal

Coronation Street Jamaican singalong by Top Grant
Rock and funk style
Funkin' it up on Corrie 
Compare the Market - Corrie's sponsor from Nov 2012 - meerkat band plays the theme tune.
