THE ORB’S ZOMBIE

One of those why-oh-why-oh-why posts. Why-oh-why did The Orb remix inexplicably popular Irish rock band The Cranberries’ big 1994 single Zombie? Really. Why? Anyone?

The only saving grace is that the remix bears little, if any, musical relation to the original. This goes from strident rock song to mellowed dub thing in the Orb’s hands. But they did leave bits of Delores’ singing, which is too much for me. Never fails to irritate, this remix.

  1. Because they could, Ctel. AP probably thought it would be a laugh

  2. actually it bears alot of resemblance to the original. they based their whole melodics and remix around the bassline. which is the best part of the cranberries original. the bass in the original is almost dubby in it’s heavy drony nature.

  3. I think it’s absolutely brilliant…is that Elroy Jetson I hear?
