Pressure Drop on Pat Phelan in Coronation Street

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog June 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

There was a lovely bit of action in Coronation Street on Monday this week when Pat Phelan was in Liverpool with Nicola and Seb.  It was good to see Phelan in his home town of Liverpool, for a start, as this helps to give us more background on the character that we all love to hate.

But also, the music that was playing as Phelan strolled around with Nicola, was one of my favourites.

It was an old Toots & The Maytals track called Pressure Drop. Now then, Corrie rarely puts music tracks against action so when they do, it has to mean something, right?

I wonder if Pressure Drop was there to suggest that pressure's building up on Phelan and it's going to drop down on him soon?  With Nicola being revealed as his daughter soon in Corrie, maybe we'll see things happening there, and with young Seb too, who could so easily turn into a young Phelan, if he's not careful.
