  1. Tempted

    "Tempted" was the second single released from Squeeze's fourth album, East Side Story. Over the years it has become one of Squeeze's most well-known songs, despite failing to crack the Top 40 in any country it was released in; Stewart Mason of AllMusic remarked, "Although its increasing ubiquity on '80s hits radio and on television would suggest otherwise, Squeeze's "Tempted" was not actually a hit single." The song also became ingrained in public consciousness due to its use in commercials by Burger King and Heineken, and the video games Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Rock Band. To this day, "Tempted" still gets moderate airplay from adult alternative-formatted radio stations. Unlike other Squeeze songs, which are usually sung by guitarist/songwriter Glenn Tilbrook or less often guitarist/lyricist Chris Difford, the song's lead vocal is sung by keyboardist Paul Carrack, though Tilbrook and producer Elvis Costello also trade a few lines in the second verse. The song was written by Squeeze members Difford and Tilbrook.
