'Tempted' by this job ad!

Glen Tillbrook was 'Tempted' by this job ad!

It was on this day (1st March) in 1974 that Squeeze went a different way to get a song writer.

Chris Difford put an advert up in a shop window saying 'lyricist seeks musician for co-writing'.

Glen then answered the ad and they went onto to have hits with 'Cool for Cats', 'Up the Junction', 'Tempted', 'Labelled With Love', and 'Pulling Mussels (From the Shell)'.
