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

The Very Thought Of You

All around Jammy Toast yesterday, the bears were watching the World Cup Quarter Final between England and Sweden. After the England victory, a rather rowdy party broke out last night and many of the bears are a little worse for wear today, including Flat Eric – who is a little flatter than usual. So there is no-one available to write the usual Musical Sunday. I was going to write the post for Eric but then I had a brainwave – or at least I think it is a brainwave. The brainwave is that if anyone has a song which always reminds them of a past event, then if they send us in the story we will publish it and also feature the song. This is probably never going to happen because you Toasters are a fickle lot. You complain about our choice of songs but we have always said give us a suggestion and we will try and feature it for you. It never happens though, so let’s see this time. To get the ball rolling, I will feature a song and memory for you to give you an idea of what I mean. Here goes…

Alittle while ago we introduced you to the phenomenon of the Flash Mob. In case you have forgotten, a Flash Mob is a group of at least ten people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act – dance or sing a song – for a brief time, then quickly disperse. It is usually performed for the purposes of entertainment and are organised via social media. The term was coined to reference the way the mobs assemble. As always happens, big business has jumped on the back of this spectacle and many Flash Mobs have been organised to promote a company or product. Air Lingus organised one at Dublin airport which was particularly good.

Liverpool Flash Mob

AFlash Mob is a group of at least ten people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire and artistic expression. Flash Mobs are usually organized via social media, or viral emails. The term was coined to reference the way the mobs assemble. It has also been used to describe a number of robberies and assaults perpetrated suddenly by groups of teenagers. However, Bill Wasik, originator of the first Flash Mobs – and a number of other commentators – have questioned or objected to the usage of “Flash Mob” to describe criminal acts.
