I was stuck on this song for about a week.
I never got tired of it.

I think it's one of the best melodies ever written.
The arrangement and instrumentation is impeccable.



The Beatles aren't the only ones to have written 'perfect' songs.

quite agreed quite agreed.




Here's next week, then. It's only made a hair uneven with Elvis Costello's production. But the thing is, Chris Difford can write a goddamn lyric.

The whole thing is draped in soul instead of blues, and we don't realize it or really think about how draped in soul it is, because it's these five guys from London. But it's not exactly the blue-eyed soul of Hall and Oates, because it's turned down a notch. It's made subtle.

Yes, yes. This is a good one. The total, pleasing, effect of the lyrics, vocals, instrumentation, and production of this track is only outweighed by the question, "who is Squeeze?"

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.

They are organized much more like a Becker/Fagen than a Lennon/McCartney.
