“I bought a toothbrush, some some toothpaste, a flannel for my face” TEMPTED, Squeeze, Unclassified tempo map

“Tempted” plays at a speed where one usually finds songs filled with enthusiasm.

It was the first song I heard when I arrived at my college in 1981, and indeed, leaving my little town of Harrington Park behind I felt I had made a mistake, I always loved the part of the song where Squeeze’s lead singer sings what I wanted in November 1981 when he sings the classic, “I said to my reflection, ‘let’s get out of this place!’.
