Dolores O Riordan
Remembering Dolores Mary Eileen O’Riordan who was born on this day 6th September (1971) – The Irish soprano, who led the Cranberries to worldwide fame as one of the most popular bands of the 1990’s. With a Celtic-inspired singing style that sometimes included yodelling and a thick Limerick accent, she made no attempt to hide. Her first solo album, ‘Are You Listening’ was released in May 2007 and Dolores powered the band’s best known hits such as ‘Zombies’ and ‘Linger’…

ODE TO MY FAMILY
I first heard Dolores’ angelic voice in the early 90’s. Her songs seemed to be poems infused with syllables full of music. The vibes of her lyrics always penetrated deep into the heart, of my soul. I am overwhelmed with emotions, tears and memories on hearing this, my favourite song:
“Ode To My Family”
My mother she’d hold me
She’d hold me
When I was out there’ ~ Dolores O’Riordan
I hear the echoes of this lullaby, like a prayer, reminding me of my own Mom and the tears still fall when I play this. Perhaps Dolores was a Healing Angel, she always seemed so fragile to me ~sort of the way I’d picture guardian angels, translucent and delicate. I sigh now, at how quickly life has passed by. It seems impossible to exhaust these memories, they help me to find that silver lining and I’m happy to let them Linger. Enjoy your family while you have them.

‘Erase human disgrace… hostility is bad and Human greed is sad …
People must accept each other for what we are … no changin’ no rearrangin’, no pushing no shovin, just sweet harmonies…
Beautiful people everywhere !!!!

Love Dolores O’Riordan

‘Like-minded people are drawn together, but sadly with Dolores gone,
All that we have left are her memories and lyrics of her songs.
Thank you dear Dolores for helping us cope our tough times through,
Your thrilling voice, Ode’s to our family and … ‘Du, Du, Du’
