President Michael D Higgins said:

“It is with great sadness that I have learned of the death of Dolores O’Riordan, musician, singer and song writer.

Dolores O’Riordan and The Cranberries had an immense influence on rock and pop music in Ireland and internationally.

I recall with fondness the late Limerick TD Jim Kemmy’s introduction of her and The Cranberries to me, and the pride he and so many others took in their successes.

To all those who follow and support Irish music, Irish musicians and the performing arts her death will be a big loss.”

Now, those are the words of a real President.

The Queen of Limerick is dead, God rest her.

France Gall, died today in Paris aged 70 after a long illness.

Her big claim to fame was winning the Eurovision contest for France in the mid 60's - when I recall first falling for this chic young lass.
The song, Poupee de cire, poupee de son, was written by Serge Gainsbourg, which true to form for him was met with some controversy.
F. Gall recorded many very successful hit songs, many written by her French singer-songwriter husband Michel Berger. She also released a great many record albums.
It's no longer a secret that the Gainsbourg song Les Sucettes (Lollipops) which he wrote for her at a very naive 21, contained many extremely sexual connotations, which she later admitted being totally horrified when he explained what the double entendre lyrics really signified.

Here are a few of her immensley popular hits:-
Ma Declaration (My Declaration)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZhguAINZtw

This was a trubute to Ella Fitzgerald:-
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCN2VlZNbXs

Cézanne peint (Cézanne Painted)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSNqPbh-6dk

Il jouait du piano debout (He played the piano standing)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubQbJb4dhU8
Oh no. Loved her growing up. Didn’t realize she was that old though.
