I feel like the way to write it is "The Cranberries - Dreams"
Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand - Sir Duke (1976)

Riccardo Cocciante - ‘Quando Finisce Un Amore’ (the original 1974 version please) I had the American version under Richard Cocciante ‘When Love Has Gone Away’ on 45 rpm. Spent many nights at 13 years old wearing that vinyl out. OMG I don’t feel that old! Still gives me chills.

I guess I update my only one nomination in the game at a time rule to two nominations at a time. Since Lana Del Rey has made the Hall of Fame (hurray!) I will add another song from my top 1.000 that is overlooked at this forum. But this time probably because it is in Dutch. I just want to see how it fares with people who don't speak the language. So, from my top 100 I nominate:

Van Dik Hout - Stil in mij
