In Dolores O’Riordan’s memory: 5 essential Cranberries songs

We unfortunately lost Dolores O’Riordan, singer of the Cranberries, with 46 years old.

A representative issued a statement saying that members of the band “are devastated to hear the news” and asked for privacy “in this very difficult time”.

And until now there is no more information about her death. Dolores’s body was found in London, where the Cranberries would participate in a recording.

And to honor this unforgettable voice of rock and roll, we prepared a list of 5 essential Cranberries songs.

Check it out:

Dreams by The Cranberries
Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? (1993)

The hit is a hit Irish rockers from the Cranberries. The track was released in 1992 as the band’s debut single. But an early 1990 version was released in Ireland only in the summer of that year. It reached the Top 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Airplay and the top 30 on the UK charts in early 1994.

The backing vocals on the song are made by Mike Mahoney, ex-boyfriend of Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan. This hit was also a main feature of the Cranberries in the 1994 Woodstock Revival Festival.

Linger by The Cranberries
Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? (1993)

“Zombie” by The Cranberries
No Need to Argue (1994)

The track was first released in 1994 as a single. The song was written by Dolores O’Riordan and is a lament to the conflicts involving the Protestant issue in Northern Ireland. The riff of the song is quite heavy compared to other singles in the band. It ranks first in the charts in some countries such as Australia, Belgium, Denmark and Germany.

The song takes the unassailable position that killing young children is tragic, but in venturing into the political issues, it created a great deal of controversy. This didn’t surprise O’Riordan. “I knew that would be the angle of the song, because it was controversial,” she told us. “But, I suppose I was kind of taken aback with the success of the song. I didn’t know it was going to be that successful.”

“Ode To My Family” by The Cranberries
No Need to Argue (1994)

The song was released in November 1994 as the second single from their second studio album No Need to Argue. The song was a hit in most of the European countries where it was released, peaking at number four in France, its highest position internationally, and number five in Australia. This ballad was less successful than the previous Cranberries single, “Zombie”. In 2017, the song was released as an acoustic, stripped down version on the band’s Something Else album.
