Have been struggling for days what to write worthy of a lifetime review of this wonderful – beautiful lost soul. The worst reality is that she is lost for ever but what a complex and mind blowing legacy of songs Dolores leaves behind to be heard forever.

Alt-Rock came in the 90’s in many ways thanks to the great music released by The Cranberries… What a voice mezzo-soprano who could sing with a group – solo – duet – orchestra – opera – alt-rock – celtic rock and more et al…

Here are some songs on video, thanks Dolores for the wonderful memories!

Dolores O’Riordan & Sinfonia Varsovia – Zombie ( Live in Warsaw )

This was inspired by the IRA bombing in Warrington, Cheshire in 1993. Two children, Jonathan Ball and Tim Parry, were killed. The IRA (The Irish Republican Army) is a militant group determined to remove British troops from Northern Ireland. Lead singer Dolores O’Riordan claimed that “Zombie” speaks about “The Irish fight for independence that seems to last forever.” The lyrics even say, “It’s the same old theme since 1916.” Like the responsive works of Yeats, Heaney and U2, the Cranberries claim they wrote “Zombie” to be a “Song for peace, peace among England and Ireland.” On August 31, 1994, just a few weeks after this song was released, the IRA declared a ceasefire after 25 years of conflict, leading some critics of The Cranberries to wonder if the IRA was willing to call a truce to make sure the group didn’t release any more songs about them. – Who actually wrote this not sure it was in the YouTube comments attributed to Ahmad Hasan.

She is a spiritual epiphany, she raises us to heaven with her talent, voice, register a delight for our ears.

What more can be asked, just keep listening again and again. – Attribution translated from Spanish attributed to Julio Alejandro Aldo Ferrari Jara.

Needless to comment on the greatness of Dolores: measured, moving, an almost alien voice. You can easily see Elisa ‘s emotion in singing with one of the singers who most influenced her style. – Attribution translated from Italian attributed to Michele Miscia.

So, so sad to end with Ave Maria
