In Your Head, In Your Head, They Are Singing

at

Last night.

Cruise’s St, Limerick.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and colleagues – canvassing for European Election Ireland South candidate Seán Kelly (top right) – join an unnamed busker for an unusually jaunty rendition of the haunting ‘Zombie’ by local heroes, The Cranberries.

Thanks Bebe

    Awful. Having to stand around that idiot with the guitar pretending they were enjoying it…. Scarlet for that guy. The only thing worse than an awful song is an awful cover of the awful song.

    Sean Kelly bopping along to the lyrics there.

    Hup-de-hup, boppity-bop

    Just great stuff altogether

      I’m so glad you pointed that out, Tony.

      That’s the kind of Friday feeling we need round here.

      The man never tinky tonky tootled while other men watched in the seedier parts of the Phoenix park.

    You almost have to admire the inherent contradiction in Leo’s self-propagated image as being the cool, hip taoiseach and his total inability to act or behave like a normal person

      I think he’s a lot like Ed Miliband, except even in the absolute hames of British politics Ed is pushed out into the cold, whereas our one’s in charge of the whole country

    Will this clown ever stop with the attempt to appeal to the ‘yoof’ FFS.

    You are the Taoiseach, please act like you are.

    Irish politicians on the canvas and the reek of desperation go hand in hand

    Leave Leo along. Kylie fans know their music!

    In fairness, the song “Zombie” was widely panned by critics when it was released first as a dirge-like metal thrash through not enough lyrics. But, hey it now fits a lazy narrative to bash political opponents with, so the de rigeur Irish Times / INM / RTE Canteen media reaction now is to say great.

    Sure, So is Simple Minds’s Belfast Child. The Cranberries have way better songs to be remembered by. RIP Dolly.
