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

“Daydreaming” is a song by Massive Attack with vocals by Shara Nelson. The song samples “Mambo” by Wally Badarou (the “fifth member” of Level 42), from his album “Echoes” (1984). “Daydreaming” was released as a single on 15th October 1990, six months before their debut album Blue Lines was released. It was the band’s first ever release and reached #81 in the UK Singles Chart.

Daddy G said about the making of the album: “We were lazy Bristol twats. It was Neneh Cherry who kicked our arses and got us in the studio. We recorded a lot at her house, in her baby’s room. It stank for months and eventually we found a dirty nappy behind a radiator. I was still DJing, but what we were trying to do was create dance music for the head, rather than the feet.”

They were in the studio for around eight months just taking breaks for Christmas and The World Cup. Most of the ideas for the debut album were eight years old but once they got into the studio new ideas came along – Daydreaming was one of the new ideas. The group also drew inspiration from concept albums in various genres by artists such as Pink Floyd, Public Image Ltd, Billy Cobham, Wally Badarou, Herbie Hancock and Isaac Hayes.

If you don’t like it the first time through, play it again. It is definitely a track that grows on you…

  1. Ten years ago today my mate John came running out the room screaming “it’s a boy, it’s a boy!” with tears streaming down his face…

    We’ve never been back to fucking Thailand since!!

  2. Can’t sleep and in the mood to punch someones head in tbh, but on the other hand for someone who suffers badly with insomnia like me there’s only about 20 sleeps until Christmas, so swings and roundabouts my friends…

  3. Rolf report Dec 30

    Whilst my family’s been in the USA over Christmas, they’ve had a video call with Sherry & I every day. This photo’s from their Chicago hotel room. My ears prick up because I hear their voices but can’t understand where they are. They’re back in 2 days.

  4. Pooh made up a little hum that morning, as he was doing his Stoutness Exercises in front of the glass: ‘Tra-la-la, tra-la-la,’ as he stretched up as high as he could go, and then… ‘Tra-la-la, tra-la- oh, help! -la,’ as he tried to reach his toes.

  5. I just love this photo that Kate took of Dorothy. She was fast asleep in the veranda and didn’t hear Kate take the photo. Our humans are strange things, they are obsessed with taking photos of us. We don’t mind if it makes them happy.

  6. It just occurred to me that, for the first time, I’m starting a decade that statistically I have a reasonable chance of not seeing out. I feel strangely comforted by that thought.

  7. Daily Mirror
    Peter Sutcliffe claims the Tory party are keeping him in prison for “revenge”.

    it’s more to do with the fact you’re a psychopathic serial killer pete!

  8. My leaders cooked the last of the pigs in blankets , and keeps coming into the living room with one on a fork . Like a blonde Fagin from Oliver.

    There’s a pocket picking gag in there somewhere?
