The role of the ‘stellar population’ of a sprial galaxy in determining the global properties of spirals is often overlooked. This paper uses two different measures of stellar population to reconsider a) the physical meaning of the near-IR Tully-Fisher relationship for spirals and b) the relationship between the old and young components of the stellar populations in spirals.
