Celebrity Deaths 2018


#1

Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of Irish band The Cranberries, has died suddenly aged 46


#2

Oh no.
We were just singing Cranberries songs over new year’s.
Great voice.
And a great album.


#3

That sucks. Amazing voice.


#4

That has made me legitimately upset. And I very rarely get upset over celebrity deaths.

Except for Belinda Emmett that was pretty sad.


#5

WOT THE?!


#6

Just listened to this before. Genuine lump in my throat.

RIP Delores O’Riordan. Thanks for some wonderful music.


#7

Vale Dolores. Amazing voice.


#8

Zombie is an odd song.
Also, number one here and not charting in the US?
Well, we do love a vague protest song.

Linger is so friggin’ beautiful.
There’s a lazy line that bugs me though. Can’t think of it right now, but her diction deserts her for a moment.
I don’t want to say the Cranberries sound is completely…original or unprecedented. There’s a bit of Sundays there.

But Linger, Dreams, Ode, has there ever been someone who harmonises so well with themselves?
Just gorgeous.

I kind of hate that it takes a death for me to go back and listen.


#9

All this time I thought The Cardigans performed ‘Zombie’.


#10

Would make more sense, musically.


#11

And I don’t like it when my 1971 alumni die suddenly.


#12

One of my sister’s musical crushes, too.
So a bit of vicarious loss.


#13

Very depressing song.


#14

Without sadness there can be no happiness.
There can be, like, no, it’s 25 degrees and no cloud in the sky at 9:15 and I have no work for the next three days and that’s awesome.

Or something.
Probably,
Or not.


#15

Wow.
Liked her at the Cranberries.
My favourite song though is this one she did solo:


#16

We were just talking about this last Sunday night - comparing Harriet Wheeler from The Sundays with Dolores.

Then out of over a few thousand songs on my iPhone, Ode came on my stereo on the way to work on Monday.

And then today’s news.

Weird how things like that happen.


#17

Very weird.


#18

Not sure he’s a real celebrity but one of the earliest black players in English soccer, Cyrille Regis, has died just short of 60.

Played mainly for West Brom and Coventry.


#19

Won the hottest 100 in 95 too. My how music has totally turned to ■■■■ in the years that came after it.


#20

10 years today since Heath Ledger passed.

Could have been an all time great.

Such a massive loss.
