Squeeze – “Greatest Hits”

squeeze-greatest-hits-cd-cover-artPop, POP del bueno eso es lo que hacen Squeeze. La típica banda que tiene un puñado de canciones enormes que cuando las escuchas es como si hubieran estado contigo toda la vida. En España nunca han sido especialmente conocidos, pero sí en el Reino Unido donde durante su larga carrera han tenido algunos éxitos comerciales, aunque ni un solo número 1 en las listas de ventas,  y mucho reconocimiento. Yo llegué a ellos en marzo de 1994 (mi sana costumbre de poner fecha a las compras de discos ayuda a mi memoria) , ya había escuchado algunos de sus discos anteriormente, pero no les había prestado la suficiente atención y aquella primavera rebuscando en las cubetas de una tienda de segunda mano encontré este recopilatorio y lo dicho, primera escucha y como si hubieran estado conmigo siempre. Aquí están “Tempted”, “Cool For Cats”, “Take Me I’m Yours”, “Up The Junction”,”If It’s Love”….

Probad, probad a escucharlas, ya veréis…

I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste, a flannel for my face

Pajamas, a hairbrush, new shoes and a case

I said to my reflection, “Let’s get out of this place.”

Past the church and the steeple, the laundry on the hill

The billboards and the buildings, memories of it still

Keep calling and calling, but forget it all, I know I will

Tempted by the fruit of another

Tempted but the truth is discovered

What’s been going on

Now that you have gone

There’s no other

Tempted by the fruit of another

Tempted but the truth is discovered

I’m at the carpark, the airport, the baggage carousel

The people keep on crowding, I’m wishing I was well

I said, “It’s no occasion, it’s no story I can tell.”

At my bedside, empty pocket, a foot without a sock

Your body gets much closer, I fumble for the clock

Alarmed by the seduction, I wish that it would stop

Tempted by the fruit of another

Tempted but the truth is discovered

What’s been going on

Now that you have gone

There’s no other

Tempted by the fruit of another

Tempted but the truth is discovered

I bought a novel, some perfume, a fortune all for you

But it’s not my conscience that hates to be untrue

I asked of my reflection, “Tell me, what is there to do?”

Tempted by the fruit of another

Tempted but the truth is discovered

What’s been going on

Now that you have gone

There’s no other

Tempted by the fruit of another

Tempted but the truth is discovered
