61. Squeeze – Up the Junction (1979)

Whoops — I thought we were done with the 1970s, but I looked it up, and it turns out that this one dates from 1979. Mea culpa.

Here’s a charming song from Squeeze, set in Clapham Junction, just a little west of where you’ll be living. Or at least it’s charming for the first five verses; then it gets miserable and sad for the last two.

Lily Allen does a pretty great version too, if you want to check it out as well (or instead):

    aaaaaaand I’m back in my first year of college, when all I listened to was Squeeze. Thank you (I think). P.S. Do you take requests? Just ran across this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcyvrQIShiA&feature=related
