There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

“Linger” is a song composed by Dolores O’Riordan, who we still miss here at Jammy Toast, and Noel Hogan of the rock band The Cranberries. It was released in 1993. The song, which has an acoustic arrangement featuring a string section, became the band’s first major hit, peaking at #3 in the Republic of Ireland, #8 in the United States and #14 in the United Kingdom. In 2017, the song was released as an acoustic, stripped-down version on the band’s lead single for the Something Else album.

Dolores said that the song is about her first serious kiss. Originally, the lyrics were written by Cranberries’ first singer Niall Quinn. After Dolores was hired as the lead singer for the band, she re-wrote her own set of lyrics, turning it into a song of regret and based on a soldier she once fell in love with.

The music video for “Linger”, shot in black & White, is a tribute to Jean-Luc Godard’s 1965 film noir Alphaville. In one of the rooms of the hotel a silent film is being shown which features 1950s stripper Blaze Starr.

  1. If you, if you could return
    Don’t let it burn
    Don’t let it fade
    I’m sure I’m not being rude
    But it’s just your attitude
    It’s tearing me apart
    It’s ruining every day
    For me I swore I would be true
    And fellow, so did you
    So why were you holding her hand?
    Is that the way we stand?
    Were you lying all the time?
    Was it just a game to you?
    But I’m in so deep
    You know I’m such a fool for you
    You’ve got me wrapped around your finger
    Do you have to let it linger?
    Do you have to, do you have to, do have to let it linger?

  2. Can you just imagine them discussing the planning for this video. So you’re going to walk the halls of a seedy hotel with dirty old men looking for sleazy sex while you sing about the Love of your life?


    1. The cause of death was not immediately made public but police said it was not being treated as suspicious. The coroner’s office said the results of its inquiry would not be released until 3rd April at the earliest. On 3rd April the inquest was cancelled and no new date has yet been announced.

      So who knows?

  3. It’s the morning after the night before but I am still unbelievably proud and lucky to be a part of such an amazing show with the best people in the world!!

    1. Otis mate! Where have you been?

      At the risk of interrupting your masturbating can I just welcome you back!?

      1. Police arrested me!!

        Just because my son doesn’t like mozzarella sticks so I left him on the side of the road. I wished him well but the cops still called it child endangerment!
