Animal Instinct (the first piece I learned in guitar) is on repeat right now. You will be missed Dolores! 📸: Throwback to Thursday, July 22, 2010, The Cranberries reunion concert in Istanbul + the interview I did with the band while I was an intern in Sabah newspaper.
Last night when I found out about the passing of this lady, I was devastated. The song ‘Dreams’ meant so much to me. When I was a child and I was able to take my metal callipers off my legs for a few days agreed by the specialists. This song was literally smashing the music 🎧 charts at the time, permanently on the radio 📻.
Songs are powerful 🎆. It’s amazing how words can mean something entirely different to you as a person inside.
I remember at such a young age being hit by this woman’s voice of words within this song... dramatically and emotionally... for the first time in my life “my life it was changing everyday in every possible way”
The few days without the metal shackles I could start to #dream ... it was so close but yet so far...it was temporarily only for a few days “And oh my dreams, It's never quite as it seems 'Cause you're a dream to me, Dream to me”. the lalala la Lalaaaaaa part of the song is so painful.. the memories.. it was the first time I could start to truly #believe and #dream those were words that helped open up my mind, that I’d be able to #smile#live#love and #dance#thankyou#cranberries for helping a youthful child #dream to #believe#epicsong#dreams a part of my life forever.
