Song Of The Day: Squeeze – “Another Nail In My Heart” (1980)

Happy Birthday to Glenn Tillbrook, lead singer and lead guitarist of the band Squeeze, who turns the big 6-0 today. Tillbrook and partner Chris Difford formed one of the most distinctive Pop/Rock songwriting teams of all time, Difford’s homespun working-class poetics blending perfectly with Tillbrook’s effervescent melodies and bold chord progressions. The birthday boy has also been underrated as a vocalist, and hugely underrated as a guitar player – check out his solo from this 1980 classic, it is some pretty fine playing. Fans of the old Squeeze classics should know that lads are still at it these days and still sounding good. Happy Birthday Glenn!
