Line(s) of the Day #Linger

Cranberries linger song

Were you lying all the time?
Was it just a game to you?
But I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you

Taken from the song Linger by Irish band The Cranberries from their debut album Everybody Else is Doing It so Why Can’t We? (1993), and the first album I remember buying. It topped the charts both in the UK and Ireland and reached the top 20 in the US. Even now the voice of the (sadly late) Dolores O’Riordan still blows me away.

Line(s) of the Day #InYourRoom

Depeche Mode - In Your Room

In your room
Where time stands still
Or moves at your will
Will you let the morning come soon?

The opening lines of In Your Room by Essex band Depeche Mode from Songs of Faith and Devotion (1993), an album which among other notable successes topped the UK and US charts. I’m a huge fan of the band and saw them live at the 02 a few years ago. They’ve just released their 14th studio album, Spirit, which along with all their other ones has been a UK top ten smash. Other songs I’ve quoted here have been Precious and Walking in my Shoes.

Line(s) of the Day

Depeche Mode

Now I’m not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do.
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes.

Taken from the song’ Walking in my Shoes’ by Depeche Mode from the 1993 album Songs of Faith and Devotion.
