TWENTY ONE..reasons

someone opened a threat ..asking us to write a reason why we love this band and though i thought i would never be able to sum a few of my reasons i ended up writing all this…

AND…

surprise!!! they are “TWENTY ONE” reasons so you better listen to this song while reading this 🙂 it’s a beautiful live version that can give you chills..if you dont like it then “leave me alone”

ok, it’s true, i literally like everything they do and i am happy that i do, cuz they never ever let me down and they keep me happy but if this sounds way too general or boring i d specify a few things.
Of course there are more to come if i think about it but wanted to keep that as it was very spontaneous! enjoy and add anything u like!

so here’s 21 reasons to love THE CRANBERRIES!

1 – Dolores O’Riordan..Her voice! it’s so unique and beautiful that this would be a reason enough to be a fan..

____________________________________________________________

2 – being humble after all those years even when they meet fans…having a humble life, their houses, their work appart the band and everything where they live it’s just too normal.. they never exagerate. They are so down to earth! Success didnt change them as persons

____________________________________________________________

3 – writing their own songs since they only knew a few chords and notes,choosing the difficult way to start a band-not covering big hits..and then making success this way with songs that are brilliant classics since then,now and forever (eg:linger,dreams…)

____________________________________________________________
4 – having a more successful 2nd album (no need to argue 1994) than an already successful debut (everybody else is doing it so why can’t we? 1993) and then changing utterly their sound to make a dark one as their 3rd album was (To The Faithful Departed 1996)was..then bringing out a brighter and different kind of ‘recovering’ album (Bury The Hatchet 1999)while everyone thought they were gone..then a happy one (Wake up and smell the coffee 2001) and so on..i love that they dare to do it as it comes..as they feel it no matter if its a RISK when it comes to the music business.. being theirselves its really important!!!!!!
____________________________________________________________

5 – writing lyrics that are so personal all the time, the most of the songs are personal experiences/thoughts/feelings with a story behind and not fantasies

____________________________________________________________

6 – being such a good friends with each other, you can feel the love between them, they smile glince,teasing all the time on stage and it’s this good relation ship in real life also…

7 – they know where TO STOP and when to start again.
this is very important

____________________________________________________________

8 – they can have sold out shows and having a successful worldwide tour even if there is no new release for the last ten years, even if they play same setlist forever.

____________________________________________________________

9 – metal fans respect them:)..they have impact in fans of every genre

____________________________________________________________

10 – they dont really belong to a genre,they are a genre on their own.

____________________________________________________________

11- they make interesting songs out of cliche topics. for example “the love of a mother to a child” …the animal instinct..

____________________________________________________________

12 – they come up with the most interesting titles..a song called ZOMBIE?!?!respect !!!;)

____________________________________________________________

13 – they have great videos and artworks –i cant even choose one-, they always choose the best people to work with. (Storm Thorgerson, Stephen Street, Olivier Dahan, Samuel Bayer…)

____________________________________________________________

14 – they make music for them..they love their fans but they are not trying to please anyone else except their selves..that makes them so original and gives them a great quality as a band

____________________________________________________________

15 – they have great chemistry as a band but they can make brilliant solo works also.

____________________________________________________________

16 – they believe in family above all.They re so close to their parents

____________________________________________________________

17 – their bsides are very good songs, sometimes equal as singles

____________________________________________________________

18 – they have a song for every occassion…everytime i need one, they have it.

____________________________________________________________

19 – if you beliebe in them they can teach you how to be yourself and accept what you are and dream and make your dreams come true. It really works

____________________________________________________________

20 – they grew up in the middle of the fields..well Dolores did but they all come from very small places..

____________________________________________________________

21 – in a more personal side, they bring out the best in me. i got so many good friends and people in my life that i dont think i would ever get. i change to a better person for many reasons and mostly because of the enormous love that i feel for them…caring for them as a family or even more.they even taught me english :).. i own them a lot anyway.

____________________________________________________________

so who needs more reasons? if you ‘still do’ just let me know.

Happy December everyone!
