Music Monday: The Cranberries – “Linger” (Irish Alt Rock)

Posted By on February 1, 2021

No, I’m not purposefully moving out of my 1970s Music Monday comfort zone (rut) in selecting today’s 1993 Irish alternative rock song “Linger,” but enjoyed the music by The Cranberries enough while painting in the basement a couple weekends ago. I was playing Pandora on the Home Theater screen and sound system while working LingerBigScreenand as the late Dolores O’Riordan’s song does for many (40 million albums!), it caught my ear.

It is played often enough on a few of the Pandora channels that I’ve set up (used it since 2005), but having it turned up a bit louder on a better sound set-up than usual caught my ear. So here’s the re-mastered mp3 and a music video below the break.
