One of the more traditional pop bands of the new wave, the English collective Squeeze has merged classic Brit-pop and post-punk into a work. Inspired by the Beatles and the Kinks, Squeeze became a vehicle for composers and songwriters Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook to express themselves in the 1980s aspiring to break the high standards set by Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Unlike their famous counterparts, this was a genuine collaboration where they first wrote the lyrics and then co-wrote the music for it. Squeeze certainly failed to come close to the success of the Beatles, but they nonetheless borrowed quite a bit of their charm. While Britain was immediately enthusiastic about Squeeze and singles like "Take Me I'm Yours" and "Up the Junction", which quickly gained a foothold in the national Top10, the group had difficulty penetrating the US market. For 10 years after their debut and until 1987, they did not manage to get into the Top40 USA. And although the ensemble did not have hits overseas, it became a kind of cult, a role model, and this charm remained with them until the end of the 90s, as evidenced by the platinum status of their collection Singles 45's and Under, compositions from which: "Another Nail In My Heart, "" Pulling Mussels (From the Shell), "" Tempted, "and" Black Coffee In Bed "have become pop classics of the new wave era.
