Cranberries, The -- Zombie

One last 10☆/10★ score, then some more 9's, 8's, 7's and 6's for ye. (No shit music -- that's a promise)

This time it's a brilliant (in the same way the video to No Doubt's "Don't Speak", Depeche Mode's "Precious" and Johnny Cash's (RIP) rendition of Trent Reznor's classic masterpiece "Hurt" was anyway) video, fabulous lyrics and an wondorously well included, ever-present, background theme of unease and war.

Of course, this theme refers to the aptly named "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland. This theme is not shown visually (THAT much) but rather portrayed through a songful of terrificly sung lyrics, which you can thank Dolores O'Riordan for.

Released in 1994, it's still being played on the radio today.

Enough waffle, you want some music. But it's my DUTY to educate the musical thickos of this world you see.

Give it a good stab with a very blunt and partially rusty knife: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MShJ8h7cEbE&fmt=18


(Enjoy this video, if you come across a better source, please let one of the team know -- we try our best, but "we" (really "I" to be truthful) sometimes miss the best quality shizzles.)
