Say What?! comprehensive Corrs quotes collection
Richard - and who's the boss? (pause)
Jim - God . . . God's the boss
Richard - no, who's the head Corr?
Sharon - there is no, there's none. I mean, we'd kill each other if somebody tried to assume a role of boss. (others nod in agreement). We do everything I s'pose by um a democracy really, we vote and....
Richard - are you still close?
Sharon - we're closer
Andrea - we're closer.
I think um, it's like I mean, it's just normal family dynamics y'know? I mean, myself and Caroline, we're like, there's a year between us, so we were like twins brought up. There's more years between me and Jim, so I ah, he's not actually part of my childhood memories. Other than the smell coming from the bedroom.
(Andrea and Caroline just crack up TOTALLY!!!)
Sharon - Oh my god!
Caroline - oh god!
Andrea - I'm only joking!
Richard - What sort of smell? Jim, I wouldn't stand for that (Andrea and Caroline still laughing)
Andrea - (manages to get in ) I just meant his socks!
(She and Caroline crack up again)
Richard - all right, OK.
Andrea - and I'm like, 'I'm NOT in a bad mood!!!' (laughs)
The Corrs on Today show Interviewer - Richard Wilkins, Februaty 12, 1998
After a long interview....
Int: You're a bit quite at the back there Andrea!
Andrea: The others don't give me any room to speak!
Andrea is about to eat an oyster on the TV....
Int: Now, does she spit or swallow?.... (Andrea gives a shocked look)
Sharon: What?! (to Caroline) What did he say?!
Sharon: Oh God, I thought he said that!!!!
Jim: Andrea is the dreamer, and more than any of them the one who has missed out on the chance of a "normal" life.
Andrea: "I guess there's things I'm missing, but I'm gaining so much more," she says. "Success can play strange tricks on people, but I have to say that I have never felt so content and so on a level in my life as I do right now. I don't get severely uptight like I used to. Nothing phases me any more." Still very much single, she agrees that it must be quite hard for people outside the group to get close to someone in such a tightly-knit unit. "So maybe that's why nobody does," she says, quietly. "Although they're very welcome to."
Andrea (on INLYA) - (looks at camera and smiles) No, do y'know what really it is, it's tongue in cheek and it's um, y'know, you know that stage in a relationship where it starts off and y'know when it's over and she's been dumped, obviously, he's with somebody else, and ah, so initially - pining, crying, boo-boo, but then y'know, to get over it, as defense mechanism you write down a list of all the things that you didn't like, and it's just funny, y'know, now, everybody can do it, male and female. I don't mind - being bashed - if you want to! (laughs)
(when asked about her fav food)
Andrea: I love nuts. Once I start eating nuts I can't stop.
Int: Say that in Australian accent
Andrea: Nuts. Oi like nuts (Australian accent)
Int: You'll be sorry you said that (laugh)
Andrea: Oh no, oh sh** (laugh)
Andrea: I do sometimes feel like a weirdo. Because I never...Ehm...
just because sometimes and then other times because I didn't like
have a life where I left school and went to college, and left the
family and were staying in a flat or an apartment or staying on
my own in any way so to do that for the first time in my life at
25 it's...was fantastic and I get such a blast at having my own
Andrea: We were at an age that you're supposed to be like the natural
progression in life, and what everybody does and down to the animal
kingdom, you flee the nest. You don't flee the nest with the rest
of the birds that were in it y'know, you flee.
Andrea: Yeah, you have to laugh. I mean God almighty when I look at today I laugh. Everyday I generally laugh at the way we are I think we're quite comical.
Andrea (on the way she look when she was younger): Big hair and chubby cheeks
(On the first gig)
Int: To get 200 people to your first gig it's pretty amazing
Caroline: Yeah we bribed them (laugh)
VH1 To One
Andrea: Something so sweet about a family band, and I suppose there
is, but it seems so...
Sharon: So safe
Andrea: Adorable...and safe, and clean
Sharon: and nice...
Andrea: and we are these I suppose...
Sharon: Jim was hyperactive growing up
Jim: I used to be very, very lazy. There still is that side of me. I have to force myself to do things
Sharon: He's not lazy
Andrea: We're a very, very happy family. We all get on well. Sharon was the mysterious woman in her room...to me like a kid messy...oh it was lovely. My childhood memories are myself and Caroline that's basically because Sharon had her own friends and the last thing she'd want to see is to have her little sisters coming after her.
Sharon: If I get like 2 days off or 3 days off, and I'm working
like 9-10 years solid I go home for those 2 days and I feel guilty
about lying in bed and you'll need me to schedule to start working
Jim: The girls, anytime they were out together was over robbing clothes or ripping some beautiful clothing.
Jim: Sharon's the one who has this aversion to TVs she keeps throwing
them out the windows. Are we joking?
Sharon: No I usually throw my brother out the window
Jim: That's why my head is the shape it is.
Sharon: We communicate well with people, and we like to talk and
y'know get on and that's always more important than being no. 1
in the charts though we do like that too so pleaseee.... (laugh)
Jim: So Caroline, are we one, what's the story, are we one?
Sharon: Let's rock 'n roll and lose this joint
Talk on Corners (The Interview)
Jim: I don't know if I'm looking forward to this but it's time
