Casey Tweeted this afternoon the Song of the Day for yesterday, Miranda Lambert, White Liar, and the Song of the Day for today, Dreams by The Cranberries. There is a God -- I love The Cranberries!
Does any female singer have as unique a voice as Dolores O'Riordan? No, the answer, is no. I love her heavily accented, powerful yet angelic voice. My favorite Cranberries song may be Salvation or Zombie, but I also love Linger. That so much power and passion can come out of someone so tiny is a miracle to behold. She is one of the most underrated performers from the 90s and this band should have been much bigger than they were.
The Cranberries, for the uninitiated, are an Irish rock band that formed in 1989. They took a hiatus for a few years from 2004-2008 while O'Riordan pursued a solo effort and some collaborations. They reunited last year. They were at the forefront of the alternative music genre, one of the few such bands to be led by a female singer.
