There was a time that Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook were mentioned in the same breath as Lennon and McCartney. Well, time hasn’t been quite that kind to the duo who penned so many great songs for Squeeze, but there’s no doubt that they penned some real gems over the years. Difford is reponsible for the lyrics on Squeeze classics like “Tempted”, “Pulling Mussels From a Shell”, “Up the Junction” and many others. He also would trot out his regular bloke croak for cool tunes like “Cool For Cats” and “Someone Else’s Heart”. He’s still going strong. Let’s pay tribute to Mr. Difford by grabbing your iPod or MP3 player, hitting shuffle and sharing the first ten songs that come up.
