Who can forget the chorus of their song-Zombie~Zombie~Zombie~Ei~Ei~Ei? It's like one of the most addictive songs I have ever heard in my entire life. Who else can beathe life into Zombie better than the band Cranberries? Surprisingly this song has nothing to do with the undead rising from their graves like in MJ's Thriller nor it has anything to do with the infected citizens of Racoon City. Zombie is a heart-warming song that touches the souls of millions of people who love peace. Zombie teaches us to make love and not war.
Cranberries' Zombie is about how wars have destroyed the lives of innocent people. It's about how the people in war-ravaged countries have to suffer the physical and emotional pain of losing someone they love. Zombie tells about wars which do not seem to have ending, which keep on devouring the souls of people who are involved in it. It's like they are slowly losing their humanity...their thirst for blood, revenge and power has turned them into...Zombies at the expense of other innocent lives.
So to me...Cranberries' Zombie fronted by the rockalicious Dolores O'Riordan, is like one of the legendary songs that people in my era should listen to before they, themselves turn into...zombies-dead~lar! Now we Malaysians, have the opportunity to watch Cranberries live in Malaysia at Stadium Negara on the 4th of April 2012. Do you know that Cranberries is arguably one of the most successful rock band in the 90s with more than 15millions albums sold in the US alone. So who wanna join me and become one of the zombies to linger in their concert?
So who wanna zombie-ing around with other zombies while Cranberries blast out this powerful "dead" song?
