Song Of The Day: Squeeze – “Cool For Cats” (1979)

Happy 62nd Birthday to Chris Difford, who together with Glenn Tillbrook formed one of the best Pop/Rock songwriting teams of all time for the band Squeeze. Difford’s clever lyrical tales depicting British middle-class life blended beautifully with Tillbrook’s effervescent musical songcraft, and their catalogue of great songs runs deep and continues to this day. This was their first big hit, and one of the few Squeeze songs on which Difford took lead vocals. The lyrics weren’t much to write home about, but the amazing jazzy breakdown in the middle of the song showed that there was something very special about this band.
