8 Essential Tunes by The Cranberries

I know I can speak for ALL of my ’90s kids out there when I say that I don’t know how I would’ve ever survived those awkward teenage years without the luscious light rock tunes provided by Limerick based rock group, The Cranberries. For over two decades, lead singer Dolores O’Riordan and her Jameson swigging bandmates delivered some of the most blissful light rock tunes that ever graced our headphones. While they may not be as mainstream as they once were, their extensive music catalog will remain timeless and classic. We could sit here all day and get lost in the Cranberries music vault, so to save some of your St. Patrick’s Day drinking time, I went ahead and picked out 8 essential tunes by Dolores and her gang that truly represent who they were…a classic ’90s rock group. For those of you who aren’t familiar, it’s time to get lost in the Mixtape with Ms. O’Riordin and the Cranberries.


This light, frothy tune is the one that started it all for Ms. Dolores and her Irish music gang. This one will be lingering in our headphones for all music eternity.


One of the group’s more underrated tracks….except for any ’90s T.V. show in which it was played repeatedly..


A personal favorite from their ’93 debut…’Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?’


In ’94, there was no other track that got stuck in your head like this juiced up Cranberries classic…

“Ode to My Family”

Grab the Kleenex and hug your mom to this one….

“Ridiculous Thoughts”

Twister. That’s all.


Another amped up Cranberries classic….


One of their last big hits….in Ireland. Over here, this blissful number didn’t fare so well…and we can’t figure out why.
