Throwback

By | February 23, 2018

This is the first version of the “Dreams” video that was on MTV. I know because I watched it the first time it was ever aired. On YouTube, the third video is erroneously labeled the original, but the one below was it. You can tell because it’s obvious they literally spent tens of dollars on this one.

The first time I watched this video I thought, That’s a very shy possibly angry Irish girl with an amazing voice. I’ll be buying that album. Which I did.

There were actually three versions of the “Dreams” video, by the way, made as The Cranberries got more popular. My favorite was always the original because Dolores seemed more real in that one than in any of the others — although the red cloak she wears in the third is damn cool.
