The Cranberries: Dreams

Lead singer of The Cranberries, Dolores O’Riordan has passed away at just 46 years old. The band was formed in 1989 by brothers Mike and Noel Hogan, and O’Riordan joined after responding to an advertisement for a singer to write lyrics and melodies to some of the band’s demos. O’Riordan crafted a rough version of “Linger,” which became one of the group’s most famous songs. Their debut, however, is our pick: “Dreams” is more dreampop-tinged than their other tracks. From the 1992 album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?, the song was redone for their recently released Something Else in a stripped-back, acoustic version which is just as pretty as the original, thanks to O’Riordan’s tender and bittersweet vocals.
