The Cranberries’ “Linger” is making a comeback on TikTok, but not in the way you’d expect.

Covers Galore

Everyone on TikTok seems to be covering the song, with beautiful renditions popping up all over. It’s become a trend to take this classic and give it a modern twist.

A Specific Verse

Most covers focus on a particular verse and chorus:

So why were you holding her hand?
Is that the way we stand?
Were you lying all the time?
Was it just a game to you?

Slow and Emotional

The covers tend to slow down the pace of the original and add some vocal flourishes, especially on the lines “in so deep” and “such a fool for you.” It’s a song that showcases vocal talent and looks great with an acoustic guitar accompaniment.

Lingering Popularity

“Linger” has been circulating online for a while, with the phrase “letting it linger” becoming a meme. So, it’s no surprise that TikTokkers are turning to the original song for inspiration.

Embrace the Trend

Let’s just let this trend linger a bit longer. After all, who can complain about hearing more of this amazing song?
