The Cranberries – Linger (album: Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? 1993)

This song is by the cranberries. They had such good songs and then they disappeared. Dolores O'Riordan has such an amazing voice and you can hear her wonderful Irish accent when she sings, I love it. I’ve discovered them when they have released their second album “No Need to Argue” in 1994. Back then “Zombie” was quite a hit so I had to get this album!
This song is purely about being in love with someone and not getting anything in return except for a huge heartache. I don’t really have a sad story about a breakup or anything, I met my hubby when I was 24 and whatever was in my past didn’t really matter anymore. Of course I had a few crushes and a few boyfriends and my heart was broken for a few days but seriously I never made a fuss about any of it. I guess everyone experience some kind of disappointment in their life but if you are wise enough to know that this is an integral part of life then you just move on until you find the right person. If your heart is broken by someone it just means that you have placed in the wrong hands. Check out this wonderful 90’s song...
