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 never understood how this week’s song was a hit around the world and yet only made #80 on the UK Singles Chart. I have just learnt that it was the third single from the album so I can only assume that everyone in the UK had already bought the album by the time this single was released and so already had the song.

“Come Away with Me” is a song written, produced, and performed by Norah Jones. It was released on 2nd December 2002 as the third single from her debut studio album, Come Away with Me. The song reached #21 on the US Billboard Top 40 and peaked at #2 in Canada. The Come Away with Me album peaked at #1 on the US Billboard 200, and received Grammy Awards for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal. It was later certified Diamond by the RIAA for shipments of over ten million copies in the United States and went on to sell over 27 million copies worldwide making it one of the best-selling albums of all time.

The album features Jones supported by jazz musicians: Kevin Breit, Bill Frisell, Adam Levy, Adam Rogers, and Tony Scherr on guitar; Sam Yahel on organ; Jenny Scheinman on violin; Rob Burger on accordion; and Brian Blade, Dan Rieser, and Kenny Wollesen on drums. Jones wrote the title song herself which incorporates blues, jazz and folk music. Bobby Dodd of All About Jazz wrote that although the album features jazz standards, jazz purists and academics “may deny jazz credibility for her folk infusion”.

Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Come Away with Me at #54 on its list of the 100 Best Albums of the Decade.

  1. Never mind Netflix putting an accuracy warning on The Crown. If you want to put a fact-check on anything, first up should be the “British Birds” Top Trumps scoring.

    A true PACK OF LIES especially the “cute rating”!!

  2. Rolf report 14 Dec

    I’ve learnt that if I stand by a closed door in the house, someone will open it for me. So I’ve adopted the same logic for the printer in the office. Each day when I start my duties as Chief Technology Officer, I patiently wait for the paper to come out.

  3. For those who spend Christmas away from home, Christmas presents should conform to a certain size. Your host gives you a large engraving; somebody else turns up with a large brass candlestick. It is all very gratifying, but you have got to get back to London somehow.

  4. Before Gloria Glover moved to the allotments she lived in a garden with no shelter. Ken made a shelter for her and even though she’s got her own shed, she often goes in the cat cabin. GG doesn’t care what it looks like, she’s happy to be warm and dry. I don’t blame her, do you?

  5. My Christmas run in is now in turmoil as one of my elderly ninjas has hurt his leg over the weekend. So much for collecting ale off suppliers and paying the skip company. I’m now working on a disused swimming baths roof all week in a monsoon.

  6. Today I attended a briefing on plans for the last week of term. I struggled to keep my eyes open until someone mentioned Christmas dinner on Wednesday. I don’t know when ‘Wednesday’ is but I’m queuing today just in case.

  7. Migraine from hell, so decided to go back to bed for a nap and then I dreamt about him cheating on me. So now not only does my head still hurt, but im angry as fuck too.

  8. I’ve now lost two Apple Pencils in the space of 1 month, and I haven’t taken the damn things out of the house. I think Apple program them to self destruct. Might as well join the mad conspiracy internet I suppose – reason has clearly lost the battle anyway.
