Sitting in an armchair, my head between my hands.

#6 Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? - The Cranberries

I was a sophomore in high school. I was young, only 15, so I wasn't driving yet. My best friend, Sarah, was and she took me everywhere. The first time I heard this was in her car. She insisted on taking me to get my hair cut so I would "look older." Somehow I ended up with the perfect Angela Chase. This album became the soundtrack of my so called life.

OK, so check it out: if you cover up the guy on the floor's face from the forehead down, Dolores ends up with some wicked chesthair. Sweet.

My preference has always been for No Need to Argue, but that's the first one I grew into. Glad to see the Crans are still up there. My favorite track off this record is "Wanted," which might be one of the best straight-up pop songs they ever composed. Right after "Fe Fi Fo"...NOT.

Nice pick, Shawna...a nice surprise.

the cranberries, eh?

my favorite song is "when you're gone" from that yellow album...

just because it sounds like they're saying 'Doo, doo, wipe," and brings back a lot of goofy memories of me and my brothers singing in the '78 corolla.
