Oh, my life
Is changing every day
In every possible way

And oh, my dreams
It's never quite as it seems
Never quite as it seems

I know I've felt like this before
But now I'm feeling it even more
Because it came from you

And then I open up and see
The person falling here is me
A different way to be

La

I want more
(Impossible to ignore, impossible to ignore)
And they'll come true
(Impossible not to do, impossible not to do)

And now I'll tell you openly
You have my heart so don't hurt me
You're what I couldn't find

A totally amazing mind
So understanding and so kind
You're everything to me

So  much wanted to see these guys, everytime I went to Ireland I'd look to see if they were about. Missed my chance. RIP Delores
I've always really liked the drumming on this.

The best Cranberries song of all.

Quite a legacy.
Not a fan of this band.

But her voice....💗
Almost forgot about this one...her voice was just beautiful.
Some tears being shed as I listen...


Dolores Mary Eileen O'Riordan (6 September 1971 – 15 January 2018), On 15 January 2018, at the age of 46, while in London, England, for a recording session, O'Riordan died unexpectedly.

Too young to be gone already. What an amazing talent.

Hoping it's a tribute.  We'll find out shortly.
RIP!
Godspeed Dolores. So glad I saw you at the 9:30 Club in DC in the 90's a couple of times. Listening to this on full volume. xo
Its a 10 today.

Listening differently on the sad news today.

RIP 
RIP Dolores O'Riordan - thanks for playing this today.
What happened?!  So young. 
She was my angel in the 1990's
Loved this album. Whatta great voice. Sad.
Very sad news today.  RIP Dolores.

Thanks for the memories Dolores. RIP
Sigh.
RIP Dolores.
RIP Dolores.

Drums are the best part – that ending just sunk it a few points.

Zombie was pretty avoidable too if I remember...

LOL.  I love the drums on this song though.  Great timing and arrangement.

 
Note some harshness on the Berries...so what I like 'em.

I disagree with your assessment of Cranberries, but you're absolutely right about Horslips - they'd be great here (or anywhere).
Hothouse Flowers too.

"One hit wonder"?  Like them or not, this band had several Top 20 songs and albums, on both sides of the Atlantic.
Nothing screams "Early 90's" like that intro.
Haven't heard the Yodelberries in a while, but the tune stands up well and continues to please these ears.

Another song first heard on a trans-Pacific flight - so I got to hear it a few times.
Very nice too. 
{#Sunny}  Yeah very sentimental. 2015, back on a beautiful Pt Reyes beach with lots of memories.

I didn't remember Salvation so checked it out on You Tube...wish I hadn't, that is gawd awful!!
Great "on the road" song.

Though this track is relatively innocuous, she has been responsible for some of the most annoying songs in the history of the universe.

Somebody stop her.

Absolutely, I used to think she was part of some alien plot to take over the planet by making us all have our ears sewn up. Thankful my internet connection kept dropping this morning which gave a few seconds respite

arrgghghghghgh.

I'd hoped I would never hear this again. Loved it at first. Loved it at second. By the time I'd heard it on the (old fashioned) radio at work about the 10,000th time, the joy had worn off.

Alas, it never came back again.

ah well, we live in a democracy :) 
I really like Zombie, too, and the image of ... WHATT?? 
missed that, back in the day!

Time to mute button.
Zombie is a much better song
One of my favorite songs.  10
takes me back to a time when I fell deeply, madly in love.

bittersweet now, but hard to regret.
nice!
this is 'happy' cranberries and rocks; whatever happened to the knackered old sofa that went on tour with them around the globe? hopefully somebody torched it before it became a health hazard 
Like Crans, but not this tune.
SO EASY TO CLEAN WHEN I CRANK THIS UP{#Wink}

Dolores O'Riordan
Athens, Lycabettus hill
23/06/2007

Scorching hot that night,
but noone could stop dancing and shouting!

It was a big shock when you came up to me to say hi. I thought we had cut all connections with the past.
I would prefer that, from watching you walk away again...

Years ago, before the days of Gortex and CD/MP3 players - when wool and vinyl were king, our local little ski hill had speakers on the t-bar lift supports and blasted out yodeling music for all to enjoy. I think it was better because our wine skins were full of Southern Comfort. Give that a try Rocket man.

    with you on that one.

It's the {#Drummer} track that makes this tune... I really like the way they recorded it, bringing it full forward in the mix.

This is my least favorite song on this album.  I really like the rest of the album though.
Are you looking for silence of the lambs?

great song! Thanks Bill for the reminder!
{gack} . . . ululating Celtic yodel alerted the dog that another horrifically syrupy cranberries' tunes was leaking out of the pc speakers. . . after a howl of disapproval I acted as quickly as possible. . . {mute} ahhhhhhhhhh. . .
moodkiller =(
This where you hear that Dolores O'Riordan really has "the pipes." Unusual for a petite woman but my mother and her family are from Belfast, Northern Counties; they're all petite like Dolores and can sing a cappella like you would not believe. ^-^~
Shortly after this came out we took the kids to south Louisiana for an ecotour vacation. Little Andy must have been not quite 4 and I still remember him biting the heads off the crawdads and the mess of it in the back of the car. He's 16 now. Is this album that old?
ok, ok..... I can't hide it... this is not a masterpiece I know.... but what the hell.... it reminds my memories to my teenage period.... yeah yeah
This is nice, but I still like Zombie more than any of their other songs. Nothing else of theirs has the same edge to it.
Time for Feierabend and a beer...
This is the second time in one day I have heard the Cranberries on RP. It seems Bill plays them as much as Porcupine Tree. To all the naysayers of Porcupine Tree and they're being overplayed on RP, I say this: "Porcupine is far more talented than this group, and far more enjoyable." This band (the Blueberries) is annoying and their music is cloying. :flamed:
Anyone out there who can upload Faye Wong's cover of this in Cantonese? Most wanted.

Yah, in small doses they're tolerable. Over an entire CD, they start to grate on your nerves.

The chanting, more like an Arabic call to prayer than celtic vocal grace notes, puts it over the top for me. Bubble gum plus the Middle East, unique.
