Squeeze in 78

Squeeze in 78

1. Slap And Tickle – Squeeze – Classic story song as a young couple fail to connect in the verses and in the chorus Difford offers up a Tilbrook aphorism: “never chew a pickle with a little slap and tickle, you have to throw a stone to get the pool to ripple”. Amen – A+

2. Green eyes And A Heart Of gold – The Lone Bellow – Takes awhile to hit its stride but gets there with the high octane ending – B+

3. The Heart That Times Forgot – Kelly Willis – I have a friend in this exact situation and the song cuts so close I haven’t mentioned it to her – A+

4. Somebossanova (Summer Breezin’) – Al Jarreau – A late afternoon track for mid-summer – A

5. Summer Breeze – Seals and Croft – There only hit but it has a real late summer feel to it, like an ache soft rock nostalgia – B+

6. Summer Wind – Frank Sinatra – On a jukebox at 3am, summer of 1980 with a model who had just performed in a Bacardi ad. Never before, never again, just that one night and one place – A+

7. Summer’s Almost Gone – The Doors – No it is, the kids are already getting ready for school – A-

8. Hello, I Love You – The Doors – A great pop stroke – A+

9. Long road Home – Charlie Simpson – Former boy band popster gets serious… to a degree and records a good song as he attempts to grow up.

10. Five To One – The Doors – Sure, everyone wants to be young again but the oldies are the 1 in 5 as the US grows old. Now we’ve got the guns and the numbers – A
