Such a talent, too soon gone.

At least she's not doing that hiccup thingy with her voice on this tune
 

It's a Gaelic singing style. From puirt à beul ("mouth music"), which developed in villages lacking proper instruments.

Well we all have our different tastes.  And that's what makes everything so interesting!

The Cranberries - When You’re Gone Lyrics
Artist: The Cranberries
Album: Stars: The Best of 1992–2002


Hold onto love
That is what I do
Now that I've found you
And from above
Everything's stinking
They're not around you
And in the night
I could be helpless
I could be lonely
Sleeping without you
And in the day
Everything's complex
There's nothing simple
When I'm not around you

But I miss you when you're gone
That is what I do
Hey, baby
And it's going to carry on
That is what I knew
Hey, baby

Hold on to my hands
I feel I'm sinking
Sinking without you
And to my mind
Everything's stinking
Stinking without you

And in the night
I could be helpless
I could be lonely
Sleeping without you

And in the day
Everything's complex
There's nothing simple
When I'm not around you
But I miss you when you're gone
That is what I do
Hey, baby

And it's going to carry on
That is what I knew
Hey, baby
That really annoying voice of Dolores. Hate Cranberries all my life. An One because there is no Zero allowed.
Very nice, Bill.
{#Frown}So many memories of life when I listen to her voice and the Cranberries.  So sad to see her go at such a young age.
A fitting tribute.  RIP.  {#Sorry}
My favorite Cranberries song...incredibly beautiful melody and the simplicity of the song is powerful.
Thank you for the great music throughout the 90's.  The music that I traveled with on tapes through Europe, met my wife to.  Thank You.  
RIP Dolores


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.

Is it "easy listening" hour?
Sounds like the band is falling asleep. :sleep: It must be her vocals... :guitarist: :drummer: :yawn: :guitarist:
haunting irish vocals, watered down melody, i think it works perfectly

err... "greenpubes" ? they make special shampoo for that, you know.
This is a great song from a great band. If the world was filled with people who did their job as well as these guys do, things would be very differnt for all of us. The naysayers need to smarten up.
This crap makes slagging the Cranberries sooooo easy. Jeeeezus. This band is one hit (and I use the term loosely) wonder gone so dreadfully wrong.
....where's my 1256 vodka drink ? :drunk:
Nothin' says it better than "sucko- barfo". It's been a good decade or more of me hating the Cranberries :puke:

Billy Idol - "Eyes Without a Face" ?!?
Interesting! I hear a bit of Julee Cruise too.
This song brings back memories and breaks my heart. So therefore I cannot do anything else but to give it an 8.

You must be confused, this is The Cranberries, not Garbage :stupid: :nyah:

G'away, Dolores, and take the Whineberries with you.
Billy Idol - "Eyes Without a Face" ?!?
I always want to like the Cranberries more than I do.

And I was thinking just the same thing, with genders reversed. Previous posts notwithstanding, I'm a sucker for well-done cheesy romanticism. But I can't seem to give this more than a 5. I like it, but not a lot.
Hold on to love, that is what I do Now that I've found you And from above, everything's stinking When they're not around you And in the night, I could be helpless I could be lonely, sleeping without you And in the day, everything's complex There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you But I miss you when you're gone That is what I do, Hey Baby And it's going to carry on, That is what I knew, hey, Baby Hold on to my hands I feel I'm sinking, sinking without you And to my mind, everything's stinking Stinking without you And in the night, I could be helpless I could be lonely, sleeping without you And in the day, everything's complex There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you And I miss you when you're gone That is what I do, hey, Baby And it's going to carry on That is what I do, hey, Baby Cheesy? Yeah, just a bit. But for anyone who has lost a loved one or is away from loved ones for any length of time it can be moving. I think I'm going to go home and hug my wife now.
This song is zombie like...unfortunately, not enough like Zombie

She sings like she has someone in particular in mind, and really believes what she's singing. I miss my wife half the week when I'm gone. This song helps the tears flow. I don't hear the cheez that others hear. To my ears it's real emotion, not stage emotion.
:nodhead: :music: :goodvibes: :hearteyes:
Dull. C'mon Delores. You've done much better.

I've always liked the Cranberries. Check out thier Woodstock 94 set.
Most annoying vocal work I've heard in some time.

For reasons I can't explain, I find the use of even marginally obscene phrases unpleasant in forums and e-mails. I just can't find a more appropriate word for this music than this explicative from heyho.
Song is a throwback to the early 1950s, but more boring and less authentic. Is this group always this plastic? What is the value of people's listening to a million repetitions of "Doot, doot, doot, doot, Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"? I see none. Haven't heard a good song all afternoon. But then, tastes differ. :(
Yes!!! I don't own this CD, so I haven't heard it since it came out. A different sound for them, and I love it! Makes me want to find a nice guy to slowdance with! :hug:

Fantastic comments there, guys and galls....Great input.... zzzzzzz.............
mmm... cranberries... :hungry:
Yesssss! Please play more Cranberries. :)
Thier early work was amazing.... however their later stuff seems very dated and every track begins to sound the same. This, however, is a great track.
cranberry harvesting season in NJ always better with the Cranberries :wave:
Sweet retro. 8)
More Cranberries please.
