To all Cranberries fans, the Limerick Leader just published the poll for the second run of Limerick’s All Time Great !

Tough opponent this time, as Hurling is the national sport in Ireland and Limerick people are really into it, especially since Limerick won the All-Ireland Championship last year…

You thus know what you have to do: CLICK HERE to lead Dolores to the semi final!!!

Poll for this second round will close this Friday.


UPDATE – FEBRUARY 9 – 0:30 PM (UTC)

Friday deadline has now past… and the winner is:

LISTEN/DOWNLOAD: “5 New Songs” rare CD (2004)

February 3, 2019  |  7 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Oldie but goldie!
This is a very rare CD-R containing demo/early versions of songs that would appear on “AYL?”
Some fans might not have heard them all before… and for the others it’s probably been a while!

Let’s note that the demo version of “Without You” never really surfaced before and the title “Apple Of My Life” on this CD-R became “Apple Of My Eye” on the “Are You Listening?” album. [EDIT: Fox Music probably made this CD-R to pass on to various music supervisors. Seems like a title transcribed too fast, just a mistake, as Dolores sings “eye” in this demo.]

Download WAV audio files (and CD scans) on Google Drive or listen to the songs directly on YouTube.
