My question here isn’t, “do you remember The Cranberries?”. It’s, “how the hell do you not remember The Cranberries and why haven’t they had a world-tour reunion lately?”. Honestly, is there anything not to like about this band? Catchy, radio-ready rock that can be enjoyed both ironically and in earnest, often simultaneously, like a modern day Carly Simon. Plus, a lead singer who has all the charisma and good looks of Sinead O’Connor without any of the self-righteous hang ups.
Seriously, I am calling right now for a Cranberries reunion tour. Have you heard the radio lately? It’s gotten to the point where I’m looking forward to hearing Creed! If you need any other reason to call for the return of The Cranberries, here, it was referenced in The Office (which I personally think does a great job of referencing pop music).
