Let's talk Squeeze.

I made this thread for two reasons: to discuss Squeeze, and to convince people that they're a good band, despite disliking Cool for Cats.

Alright. Let's start with the Cool for Cats thing:


1. "Cool for Cats" is an odd song, for the reason that some like it and some hate it; the views on the song are usually more on the extreme ends, as shown on this forum. Personally, I enjoy the song, but just know that this isn't a clear show of all of their work.

2. The singer of "Cool for Cats" is lyricist Cliff Difford. Cliff Difford sang only two songs throughout the duration of Squeeze. The real singer is Glenn Tilbrook, and trust me, there's a significant different in their voices.

3. "Cool for Cats" is a bit predictable throughout the song, aside from the solo. Other songs by them are a bit less repetitive and catchier. (though I still love "CfC".)



Aside from that, here are some of my personal favorite songs by them:

Cool for Cats
Up the Junction
Pulling Mussels (From the Shell) Black Coffee in Bed
Annie Get Your Gun <--- Second favorite.
