British singer-songwriter Natasha Bedingfield has picked The Cranberries as one of the bands for her iTunes Celebrity Playlist. Surprisingly, Bedingfield didn’t pick a hit single, but instead opted for the somber title track from “No Need to Argue.”
“No Need To Argue” (Track 12): “I grew up with these guys constantly playing in my house. My sister and I used to try and mimic Dolores’ haunting and emotional vocals…I could never quite get it right but my sister did a pretty good impression. This song has quite a melancholy feel. The organ and choir-like harmonies compliment the subject matter quite nicely.”
It comes as no surprise, since Bedingfield lists The Cranberries as one of her influences in her official biography.
