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

“I Wanna Be Adored” is a song by the Manchester rock band The Stone Roses. It was the first track on their debut album, The Stone Roses, and was released as a single. The US release charted at number 18 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart in 1990. In 1991, the single was released in the UK, Germany and Japan featuring previously unreleased B-sides.

In 2006, the music magazine Q voted it 32nd in its list of 100 greatest songs of all time. In May 2007, NME magazine placed “I Wanna Be Adored” at number 17 in its list of the 50 Greatest Indie Anthems Ever. VH2 placed the song at #2 on the Indie 500, a countdown of their top 500 indie songs of all time. Though “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths was at number one, on a condensed version showing just the top 50, the songs had swapped places with “I Wanna Be Adored” at number one. Stylus Magazine also included the song’s bassline at number 17 in their 2005 list of the “Top 50 Basslines of All Time”.

Oasis refer to The Stone Roses by quoting the song in “Magic Pie”: “They are sleeping while they dream/and they who wanna be adored”.

The song appears on the soundtrack of the Michael Winterbottom film Welcome to Sarajevo  and on the soundtrack of the 2005 film Green Street, directed by Lexi Alexander and starring Elijah Wood, Charlie Hunnam and Marc Warren.[8] It also appeared on the fifth season of American Horror Story in the episode “Battle Royale”. The song is also featured in the Netflix TV series Chambers.

  1. I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way I’m ever gonna lose more than a friggin pound is cocaine, so currently working out my wages to see how much my monthly spend will be……skinny beckons.

  2. Love me some Stone Roses. I think I was probably as high as Ian around the same time. Nothing like LSD! Sorry kids, no thats very wrong. Don’t do drugs! :roflao:

  3. Oh, you’re not watching the Oscars? I haven’t even been to a movie theatre since my girlfriend and I were forced to get dressed and leave “The Muppets Take Manhattan” back in 1985.

  4. Here lies a tree which Owl (a bird)
    Was fond of when it stood on end,
    For lo! The wind was blusterous
    And flattened out his favourite tree;
    And things looked bad for him and we –
    Looked bad, I mean, for he and us
    I’ve never known them wuss

    My family brought my things to the cattery so it feels like a home from home. I sleep every night here on my American human’s jumper (he calls it a sweater but we know what he means). I’m also continuing to trash my favourite scratching post from home.

  6. The allotments are pretty big and the veranda in the middle is where Dorothy, Barbara and I sleep. Red Fred and ET live on plot 53/54 on the right, and Gloria and Janet on 46.Some plots have been divided, so there are more now. There were 97 plots to begin with, but some were too big so they have been divided. There are now 122 and 104 humans using them. Some humans have more than one plot.

  7. The wind howls, the rain pours. Some people swim to work, others simply ride on the back of their local hurricane. Everyone’s hair has ten times more volume than last week. Your wheely bin is gone. It’s never coming back. Nature has claimed it for its own.

  8. It’s Monday morning and I’m struggling to wake up. Must have been all that windy weather last night. Just another five minutes and I’ll be up and at ‘em. Have a great day.

  9. Boss when you decide to be all natural for once and go outside with no make up, I mean your skin just feels amazing doesn’t it and all fresh. That is until you bump into someone you know and they ask you if you’ve got the Coronavirus. Cunt!
