Squeeze - Take Me I'm Yours
Squeeze is a band
I actually only discovered relatively recently (less than a year ago), and was blown away by what I had been missing out on. They were formed in 1974 in London, England and were a major band in the 'new-wave' scene of the late '70s and into the '80s. The group has had a ridiculous number of members over the years, though guitarists/vocalist Chris Difford and music by Glenn Tilbrook wrote most of the songs through the band's career. They were definitely much bigger in the UK than the US, and helped influence a wave of new-wave bands that came after them. (Wikipedia - Squeeze)
This song is from
the band's 1978 self-titled debut release, which was produced by rock and roll legend John Cale. However, the two singles, one of which is this song, were produced by the group, without Cale's assistance. If you think that parts of the chorus sound familiar, that's because Eurythmics clearly were influenced by this song, utilizing a similar rhythmic synth, and a variation of the line '... because dreams are made of this' in their hit single Sweet Dreams. Considering this song came out five years earlier, Squeeze were definitely ahead of the curve.
Enjoy today's song! Thanks for checking out my blog, and Steem On!
