Video: The Cranberries cover The Cure’s ‘Inbetween Days’ on French TV

Nineties alt-rockers The Cranberries recently reunited and released their first album in 11 years, and here they are on a French TV show called “Taratata” performing a cover of The Cure’s 1985 classic “Inbeteween Days.” According to Chain of Flowers, the performance — don’t miss Dolores O’Riordan’s frequent peeps at a music stand presumably holding a lyric sheet — was filmed in January, but aired Friday night.

    …BUT IT’S SOOOOO HARD!!!

  2. I liked her so much better when she was a wee little mousey girl, now she just frightens me.

  3. Props to the band, they sounded good. Dolores on the other hand…

  4. That was terrible.

  5. This makes my ears bleed! Ben Folds does The Cure proud with his version.

  6. Delores is not the first lead singer who could not be bothered to show up for band practice.

  7. That was absolutely horrible.
    Her singing and performance was just awful, awful, awful.
    What the hell was that?

  8. She jumps in to the first verse a few measures early, and you can hear the keyboard player having to cover.

    • I heard that too! Hey, Dolores, make sure to check the lyric sheet after you sing “without you”, so you can remember to sing “without you”. Lifeless performance.

  9. Maybe they shouldn’t play it until they’ve practiced it…

  10. Robert Smith killed himself so he could roll over in his grave.

  11. It’s bad, but nothing will beat this Smiths cover for the sheer horror, really:

    Although TaTu came close.

  12. MAKE. IT. STOP.

  13. A limerick accent is an accent best left in Limerick.

  14. Wow! If you listen to the video without watching, it sounds like bad Japanese karaoke.

    I never thought I could hear such a classic song sung with so little emotion.
