“Linger” is a song composed by Irish musicians Dolores O’Riordan and Noel Hogan of the rock band The Cranberries. The song, which has an acoustic arrangement featuring a string section, became the band’s first major hit, peaking at #3 in the Republic of Ireland, #8 in the US and #14 in the UK. In the documentary ‘99 Love Life & Rock ‘n’ Roll, O’Riordan says that the song is about her first serious kiss.”Linger” was listed as #86 on the VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s.

As of January 2010 this is playing ‘Linger’ here. Previous contributors have posted that “This song is “Dreams” not “Linger”. It will only play as “Linger” if you add it to your library and proceed to listen to your library station; just hope it comes up.” This has either been corrected, or ‘Dreams’ is also tagged here. If you get ‘Dreams’ instead, try following the suggestion immediately above
