I'm hating the increasing use of incidental music in Coronation Street and I want it to stop right now.
But if Corrie are going to continue using it, then do it right - make it appropriate.
Play The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba every time Liz walks from the back room into the bar at the Rovers Return.
Play Sisters by The Beverley Sisters every time we see Toyah and Leanne together, with a repeat of the refrain: "...god help the mister who gets between me and my sister and god help the sister, who gets between me and my man."
Play This Charming Man by The Smiths when Roy Cropper's buttering the bacon barms in Roy's Rolls.
Play Lovely Rita The Beatles every time the big red one marks up the papers in The Kabin.
Our blogger Emma ran a poll on twitter on Christmas Eve with the majority of those voting objecting to the use of incidential music...
And can you suggest any more relevant songs for your favourite Corrie characters?
