SQUEEZE - Up the Junction(1978)
Every now and again you here a song and it makes you just 'weak in the ears' 'Up the Junction' is one of theses songs for me! Every time I hear it I get all gooey and sentimental. Even Old Pa has got feelings you know!
I just love this song, it has got everything for me, great story line, great backing, To me this is 'street poetry'. I can identify with our hero, the times. The whole thing evokes great memories of the classic British films of the 60's which were black and white, stark and just told the story of the hard times experienced in the early 60's. Try watching 'Saturday Night, Sunday Morning', 'Poor Cow', 'A kind of Loving' and of course 'Up the Junction' to name but a few. If you ever get a chance to see these brilliant films please do so. You won't be disappointed. They are a beautiful time capsule of a time that either you remember or your Dad and Mum lived.
Back to Squeeze. I have been a fan since I saw the Picture Cover (above) for 'Up the Junction' back in 1978 while browsing in Woolworth's. It has one of my favourite song endings, I just wish that it would go on for ever and I have been a Squeeze fan ever since.
Talking about endings have You a favourite? Here are a couple that got me 'Tunnel of love' by Dire Straits, 'Ceremony/In a Lonely Place' by New Order, 'The White Room' by Cream Especially the Live Version . 'Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands' by Bob Dylan and of course my favourite ending of all time 'You set the Scene' by Love (Click to hear).
Check out a 'Best of Squeeze'. You can't go wrong there.
