First Japanese “Wake Up” Bonus Track Info

August 2, 2001  |  Comments Off on First Japanese “Wake Up” Bonus Track Info  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Music importers have begun taking preorders on the Japanese version of “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee”. As per usual, the Japanese edition of the CD (like most albums there) will contain bonus material not found on the North American release. The Japanese “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee” will contain one bonus track for a total of 14 tracks. We don’t have any more specifics yet, but one extra track is a bit scant compared to past offerings. “Bury the Hatchet” included two tracks (“Baby Blues”, “Sorry Son”) and “To the Faithful Departed” included all three B-sides from the album (“Cordell”, “The Picture I View”, “Intermission”).

Official Site Reveals HTML Page, August Venues

August 1, 2001  |  Comments Off on Official Site Reveals HTML Page, August Venues  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The official site has launched their HTML version of the new Thorgerson-designed webpage. The site loads much faster, especially for us poor souls deprived of broadband as of yet.

The site also lists five confirmed venues for the US promo tour this month (!). However, these are “private media showcases” and therefore tickets are not publicly available, with the exception of the Boulder show. However, the page is holding a 30-word essay contest to give away 2 tix and the opportunity to meet the band.

August 14th Los Angeles – Roxy Theater
August 16th Boulder – Fox Theater (Some public tickets available!)
August 18th Chicago – The Double Door
August 20th Minneapolis – Fine Line
August 22nd New York- Bowery Ballroom

Fergal has also updated his section, noting that the band has been practicing for the last several weeks and they plan to do many interviews this month as well. Of course, for all the details, don’t miss the official site.

Three new videos about Angelica’s “Linger” cover, “Se a Gente Se Entender” are now available, thanks to her parent company Globo.

The first is an interview with Angelica about The Cranberries and the song — the video even shows a clip of the original Linger video. She admits that she can’t sing easily like Dolores does. The narrator also comments that “Dolores O’Riordan has a golden voice!”.

We have the Portuguese lyrics to “Se a Gente”:

Se a gente se entender

Eu sei
Pode parecer
Que é dificil ver
Uma solução
Parece que o problema
É só mais um dilema
Mais uma confusão
Pra me enloquecer

Eu sei
Não é tão importante
Você também passou
Por isso
Mas essa é minha vida
E nada é igual
O mundo já mudou
E eu mudei também

Será que você
Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender

Eu sei
Falta tempo agora
Você anda tão distante
Sem hora
Pra ninguém
Quanto mais
Pra mim

Tudo é tão depressa
Correria e pressa
Eu tranco a porta do quarto
Eu não quero ver ninguém
Tou pedindo pra você
Eu preciso de você

Será que você
Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender

Será que você
Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender

Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender

Também não soube resolver
Quem sabe se a gente se falasse
Fosse mais fácil entender
Bem mais fácil, é mais fácil
Se a gente se entender
