Remembering: Dolores O’Riordan

The song Linger would have to be my fave by The Cranberries and that track been on repeat a few time this morning after reading that so very sad news at only 46 lead singer songwriter of The Cranberries passing away, with no more info right now. I grew-up in the 90’s or was a teenage or whatever and they were just huge then. Another epic hit by them Zombie has featured on my blog more because of the simple fact of having zombie in the title and I am obsessed with zombies so that one would be in one of these posts here or here but I shouldn’t be going on about today. I should maybe have more than one song above too but I wasn’t their biggest fan of them but did love that one or those two and will off course have a listen some more songs, albums today because that’s what I do or everyone does do after hearing news like this, most likely starting at the beginning with:

The song Linger was from Everybody Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We? which was the debut studio album and released in the early part of 1993 and from Wikipedia: At the end of 1995, it ranked as the 50th best selling album in Australia… the Linger video clip shot in grayscale, is a tribute to Jean-Luc Godard‘s 1965 noir film Alphaville. In one of the rooms of the hotel a silent film is being shown which features 1950’s stripper Blaze Starr.

Linger lyrics:

If you, if you could return
Don’t let it burn
Don’t let it fade
I’m sure I’m not being rude
But it’s just your attitude
It’s tearing me apart
It’s ruining every day
For me
I swore I would be true
And fellow, so did you
So why were you holding her hand?
Is that the way we stand?
Were you lying all the time?
Was it just a game to you?
But I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you
You’ve got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to, do have to let it linger?

Oh, I thought the world of you
I thought nothing could go wrong
But I was wrong, I was wrong
If you, if you could get by
Trying not to lie
Things wouldn’t be so confused
And I wouldn’t feel so used
But you always really knew
I just want to be with you
And I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you
You’ve got me wrapped around your finger
Do have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to, do have to let it linger?

And I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you
You’ve got me wrapped around your finger
Do have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to, do have to let it linger?

You know I’m such a fool for you
You’ve got me wrapped around your finger
Do have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to, do have to let it linger?
