Haven't heard Lyra before.

It was a very good tribute... certainly has her own take in parts, but, was well done.

Did the Awkward tag rise from the dead?

Meh. I didn't think she was very good.
D.O. was much better.

The video for "Zombie" has one of the funniest moments of inappropriately rocking out this side of the keyboard player in the EMF video for Unbelievable.  If you should watch the video sometime soon, watch the drummer.

Two years back, I got to Basel's faschnaut (carnival) for multiple days of partying/drinking. Great highlight was one of the music cliques roaming around stopped midstreet and started to play Zombie. Everyone nearby was quietly singing along (nice mix of accents with people from multiple countries involved) and then as soon as the chorus hit everyone just starts singing at the top of their lungs and continued that way for the rest of the song. The clique fed off of it and started really getting into it. Just a wild moment out of nowhere.

There's an awful europop cover of Zombie that I remember from the late 90s where for some reason the singer is singing whilst standing in a car wash.

Ok, it's so terrible I had to find it and share.

I'm baffled, flummoxed.  I'm also confused by the little bits of what appears to be a plot in the video.

At work and can't play it right now, but that's one of those songs I believe should never be covered.

Way to rub it in, Lyra!

"Dreams" is a better song than "Zombie".

The problem with someone non-Irish covering a Cranberries song is they don't have Dolores' wonderful lilt that made her singing so distinctive.

You are correct. She died the morning she was supposed to go into the studio to record her vocal tracks.

I didn't know there were so many cover versions of Zombie.

I hereby put out the challenge for someone to make a polka cover of it.

Lead singer of Unleash the Archers covering the song. Not polka though.
