Being a fan of the band, Squeeze is pretty much Difford/Tilbrook and whatever musicians are on hand that day.

Chris Difford (the low froggy-voiced one) writes the lyrics and Glenn Tilbrook (the high poppy-voiced one) writes the music, both really very good at what they do.

The trouble is, they recruited Paul Carrack to play keys for a while, and since Mr Carrack is a great singer (Ace "How Long", singer for Mike + the Mechanics), they had him take the mic for one song: "Tempted". Then that one song becomes their greatest international hit.

At some point in the 80s, some music journalists thought Difford/Tilbrook was the next Lennon/McCartney, 'cept nobody is really the next Lennon/McCartney.
