GP's Song of the Day: Mazzy Star

By Graeme Whitfield on Sep 3, 09 01:47 PM

It seems unlikely, I know, but I'm pretty sure that Fade into You by Mazzy Star - a song whose loveliness is matched only by its obscurity - was used in a wedding scene on Coronation Street.

Mazzy Star were (are?) an American indie band in the 1990s and though Fade Into You was their biggest hit, it didn't make the Top 40 here or in America. It was pleasantly surprising, then, to hear it in the background of Steve McDonald's wedding to Becky on The Street.

No doubt Roy Cropper is a big fan...
