Favorite "Lie" Songs #7 - "Liar"

#7 in my Favorite "Lies" Songs belongs to Ireland's Cranberries, with their song "Liar." Originally led by guitarist Noel and bassist Mike Hogan, and fronted by Delores O'Riordan, the Cranberries formed in 1989 in Limerick, Ireland. Early on, the band appeared on the popular John Peel show, later appeared on the TV series Charmed. "Liar" was featured on the soundtrack to the 1995 film, Empire Records (which is a great soundtrack, by the way,) and was released, according to Wikipedia, only in Spain. (Not so Fun Wikipedia Fact: O"Riordan sued Noel Hogan in 2013, for reasons unknown. The case was dismissed in 2015. Oddly, both are still in the band, which has to be awkward.) I was going to use a corny line stating that "I'm not "Lying" when I say that I love the Cranberries and 'Liar.'" Instead, I'll just link the song below. Enjoy!

not my favourite of their songs but relating to your discussion topic it was good. I like zombie and linger as I expect many do zombie has a bit of a bigger issue for me as an english person adopted from an irish catholic family. Brings back memories. My first visit to NI was on a military helicopter.

I love the band. "Zombie" is a favorite. So is "Linger."

PS...I listened to the cranberries as a teen roaring round the country in a mini van with a bunch of mates visiting various pubs. PS...a mini van doesn't mean what US people think...the pic is a real mini van...a real mini in van version

@Mike197602 - I'd buy one of those anyday before I'd buy a US minivan.

No, but I do like the Three Dog Night song. I pretty much liked everything I heard from them.

That's another good one. I used to have a cranberries CD. I listened too all the time.

I will be offering up my own Cranberries selection in the future. Not Zombie though it's the right time for it. Dolores is a great singer.
