Everybody Else is Doing it, So Why Can't We? - The Cranberries

I'm gonna be honest, I haven't listened to this album all that much. I got it at one point because I knew it had Dreams and Linger on it, and I listened to it once, and then it kinda got left behind 'cause I had a whole bunch of other music to listen to at the same time. I did start listening to it more though, and this is what I have to say about it. The theme on the album is very consistent, it's mostly all about a girl who is in love with a guy, and she has to force herself to leave him and forget about him because he doesn't love her or treat her well. I think every song on there is about that same thing... You can listen to the lyrics in this song Linger, and you should see exactly what I mean.

Even though I think this cd is boring lyrically, I think the music is really beautiful. Dreams is the other one I knew from the album, and I think that's the only one that doesn't talk about her need to get out, but it's still about a guy. Because of all the other songs on the album, I don't think it has a happy ending like I used to... The music video was really interesting too....

Why was there a guy in the mud??? anyways... I hadn't seen that until I went looking for videos to put up.... I don't think she's the best live performer, so I only put up the one I liked best. I think most of you would agree with me that the live performances are not the best if you looked up more. This next one, Put Me Down, is the last song on the album, and like all the other ones it's about her leaving, but it just has such a sad and beautiful sound to it that I can't help liking it...

I was noticing on Youtube that a bunch of people thought the same thing as me about this album and how it's mostly all about the same thing. This was the Cranberries first album, and the other ones I heard are happier. I'm glad to be done with this post, 'cause now I can stop listening to the album as much as I was. I think it's been making me a little depressed, so you may want to watch out for that if you decide to listen to this music a whole bunch. The 3 songs I posted are my favorites from the album, so let me know what you think of them!  Most of you should at least already know Dreams or Linger, since they're pretty popular songs.

  1. I like Zombie. Best song ever! Strangest too. But it makes sense if you know its meaning.
