Music Monday: Zombie by The Cranberries

Music Monday is a meme started by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. Pick a song you really like and share it.


Hopefully this isn’t a redundant post to those of you who followed my A to Z challenge this past April, if so, sorry. The final song I did for the challenge was “Zombie” by The Cranberries. I hadn’t heard the song in years, well years before Dolores O’Riordan unfortunately passed in January 2018, but it’s been stuck in my head for the past week.

When we think of earworms, it’s frequently bad songs, songs you wish you’d never hear again. This one is not that. I just hear her incredible, one-of-a-kind voice singing her heart out.

From Wikipedia: “‘Zombie‘ is a protest song by Irish rock band The Cranberries, written about the 1993 IRA bombing in Warrington, and in memory of two young victims, Johnathan Ball and Tim Parry.[1] It was released in September 1994 as the lead single from their second studio albumNo Need to Argue (1994). It preceded the release of No Need to Argue by two weeks. The song was written by the band’s lead singer Dolores O’Riordan, and reached No. 1 on the charts in Australia, Belgium, France, Denmark and Germany.”

 In your head, in your head, they are fighting
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are crying

Dolores O'Riordan
