RIP Dolores O’Riordan

This week the music world faced another shock. The singer from ‘The Cranberries‘, Dolores O’Riordan passed away. It hasn’t been said what the cause of her death was. She was only 46 and she was full of life. It’s a shock for her family and band members but also for the fans. It’s such a shame people die when they still have years to live.

I remember when I studied for the first time in another city and the girls who lived in the room beside mine (and my roommate) kept playing the song ‘Zombie’ and at the time I didn’t like The Cranberries at all. It was only years later I began to like the band. How things change over the years. I wouldn’t call myself a fan but whenever I heard them on the radio, I didn’t change the channel.

My favourite song is ‘Salvation’ so I decided to post this video. She will be dearly missed.

RIP Dolores O’Riordan

  1. I was extremely upset about the news of her death. An Irish publication that I read stated that she had suffered from very bad depression, was diagnosed as bi-polar in 2015 and tried to take her life a few years back–that was devastating.
    Her music, and The Cranberries, always bring me back to a great time in my life–as a stay-at-home mom. I loved Zombie, Linger, and kids and I would listen to those songs all the time. It kills me. Mental wellness is something nobody dares to discuss and it needs to be brought out in the open and not treated like a stigma.

    It’s just so upsetting.


  2. I like Dreams and Linger. Probably their two most played songs, but not positive. And the year is young… so i expect there will be more to come. Enjoy your posts…


I know you're there. Why do you linger in the shadows?
