  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.

  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Each of us has his hidden negative side of the person, someone demonstrates it, someone hides it, but this is the part of us that is not us, but only a parody of us. This is what we seek to suppress in ourselves. We suppress egoism in ourselves and move to a new level of consciousness where we will not be alone. Since love is much better than loneliness in selfishness. Since it is precisely the main power of the dark side of the personality that is the manipulation of egoism. Of course, a person changes in his face and his eyes glow in his eyes because he does not see his own wine and what is happening. Such a person becomes blind in his head. False righteousness leads away from the truth. There are no bad people because we simply don’t realize what we are doing. A man is covered with dark energy, anger turning into black hatred. A person is tempted that only he is right so he gets an illusory superiority and his face is completely lost. The soul of such a person becomes black. A sense of rightness does not give him comfort, because evil will never have comfort, only hatred in the soul. It is impregnated with energy, turning into a certain entity and it is clear that it is contagious. Man, as it were, demonstrates pride. But often, as you probably noticed, such people left little of humanity in themselves. The dark energy of arrogant hatred destroys us from within and life is completely meaningless. This is not just reasoning, it is a pattern that surrounds us. Whereas love and forgiveness returns us the true form of self. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
