you probably enjoyed the musical stylings of the cranberries at some point in the mid nineties. i love their big hits as much as the next person (linger, dreams, zombie) … but when you’re gone has always been my favourite cranberries track. i had it on tape and played it over and over on my walkman. do you know how difficult that is to do with a tape? you have to rewind and then find the right place… oh man! but it was worth it.
i won’t make a habit of posting youtube videos, but this song has resurfaced in my playlist this past week and has enjoyed numerous repeat plays once again (it’s in the top ten most played songs on my ipod). cute video, too.
this gives me such goosebumps, it’s ridiculous! also makes me want to jump up & dance like a crazy. the concert was in 1987 & held in harare – you can buy the dvd at amazon (or take2 for the locals). the graceland clip is equally rad.
there was a time when i still watched mtv, and i remember this video being played almost non stop (literally, i think it was basically back to back one day) – that was in 2002, according to wikipedia. i never tired of it, or the tune.
