Remembering Cranberries Lead Singer Dolores O’Riordan
Earlier this week the lead singer of the Cranberries, Dolores O’Riordan passed away in London. Following her death, even the Irish President Higgins released a statement commending O’Riordan’s contribution to Ireland and pop music worldwide.
Some know about her because of catchy tunes like Zombie or Dying In the Sun, others do because she represents a generation of rebellious attitude and sincere outrage towards injustice. The fact that she was 5ft 2in (158 cm) only added to her persona of strength, courage, and independence.
At this special time, we want to make a special tribute to Dolores O’Riordan. You shall forever live in us and may your soul rest in peace.
Never Grow Old
Birds in the sky, they look so high. This is my perfect day.
Do you remember the way it was for you… it was a terrible thing to see you’re dying inside.
They will never make me cry, no… It’s the animal instinct in me.
When You Are Gone
I’ll miss you when you’re gone, that is what I do… it’s going to carry on, that is what I do…
You And Me
You will be the world to me and I will always be dwelling in this happiness, your gift of purity.
To all the kids with heroin eyes, don’t do it, don’t do it.
And the violence caused such silence, who are we mistaken… With their tanks and their bombs, their bombs and their guns.
“There are only a few artists
who get to have maybe one song they are remembered by.
Dolores has so many.”
– Rolling Stone
