80s Song of the Day: Tempted by Squeeze

I said to my reflection
Let’s get out of this place

TemptedTempted by Squeeze was released in the United Kingdom on July 10, 1981, with Yap. Yap. Yap. as the B side. It was the second single released from the band’s fourth album, East Side Story. The song featured Squeeze keyboardist Paul Carrack on lead vocal.

Although Tempted is now one of Squeeze’s best-known songs, thanks to its inclusion in commercials, film soundtracks, and video games, it was not a hit upon its release. It reached No. 41 in the United Kingdom and No. 49 in the United States.
