Have you ever felt helpless knowing that someone you love feels a big pain…?Big pain such as losing some of their closest people. Death! Cold cold emotion… and then you don’t know what to say and what to do to give some comfort?
This is what Dolores probably felt when she wrote “Angel Fire”..She wrote it as a gift to one of her sister’s in law,when the last one lost someone she loved. I again can affiliate with her lyrics and everyone can build a different story around it while hearing them.Thats the magic of music and that’s mostly the magic of Dol’s writing.
For all those who sometimes feel like they need an angel fire to take them higher…Whatever that means to you….dont forget to be careful,not to lose control,not to lose your soul when flying high…cause Dolores will come back in 2012 to ask you and make you wonder “where is your fire and soul?” but that’s another beautiful track..for another blog post.
Here I am posting the very first video of this song. I remember it was just before Christmas 2006 when they recorded it…my family was gathered around the house and I left them to check the cranberries daily news…I played the video and I cried within the first few seconds. It was such a long time that I haven’t seen her… long hair..such gorgeous appearance, full of positive energy and passion ..i will never forget it…such a strong emotion. Steve DeMarchi was there as always, he had long hair also.They both did great work there. That was a big and long awaited return..i post this for me but you can watch it if you like and share my joy 🙂
