Dreams of the Awake
I have a recurring nightmare in which I dream that I can't sleep. I awake completely unrested but I still have some sweet Dreams to fall back on during the day, like this one from the Ohashi Trio.
This Cranberries classic has been covered countless times over the years in more than a couple of languages (Faye Wong alone gave us a two tongued dose of the song, once in Cantonese for Wong Kar-wai's cinematic triumph, Chung King Express, and a later recording in Mandarin). Sit back and enjoy as the Ohashi Trio from Japan delivers what the Youtube uploader of this music video calls a "mellow reinvention" of the Cranberries hit tune, Dreams, and may all your dreams come true.
If you were dreaming that one day the Cranberries would get together in the studio again and release a new album, it looks like your dreams have come true. The Cranberries latest recording, Roses, is slated to hit store shelves and elsewhere this Valentine's Day, February 14, 2011.
Can you hear the faint hint of an Irish brogue in the lead Ohashi Trio crooner's voice?
