It's raining men, hallelujah, it's raining men; dirty shirt in a vest, poke your cock in my chest, it's raining men hallelujah, I want sex over there, shave your cock, too much hair.

I think this tune is amazing.

I was attacked by a wheelchair man after this, and as much as I appreciate the wheelchair people, I should not be turned into one myself. That was wrong!

One of the reasons that my latest car came with XM Satellite radio. Without XM Lithium (an alt rock channel) I would never have heard of the Cranberries. Back when this came out, nothing I listened to had this

Heh.

And I was thinking there might be a few too many "dat doo dah's" in it too.

Along the lines of Paula Cole --

There were some great women singer/songwriters in the 90's who rocked -- and that should be acknowledged even if they aren't to your taste.

Jewel, Tori Amos, Tanya Donnelly, Liz Phair, Cheryl Crow -- the list goes on.

To me, this is exemplified by this great song by Sarah McLachlan - Sweet Surrender.

Beautiful songwriting and singing, along with some killer and understated guitar:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2JWJYLNUq4

Just listened to it 3 times in a row.

Make that four...
