Gawd I am such a major league fag for this band Squeeze. Unashamed I am about it too! Don't ask how it happened, I really don't remember, but it just did. I, like every other girl on the planet, had this originally in the good ol' VHS format many, many moons ago, and to finally have it on DVD is so freaking awesome! No remastering / remixing done with this DVD - it looks just as bad now as it did back then! hahahaha But oh, the music, the music is glorious - sugar sweet pop songs of Lost Love, Broken Hearts and Excessive Drinking make this band one after my own heart. The little blue guy from the Greatest Hits LP is still here, scrawling away in blue and red all the song titles to the videos. Was he supposed to be drawn in 3-D? I dunno. I might have to bust out some 3-D glasses and see if he is, because it sure looks like that. Anyways, if you don't know a thing about Squeeze, this is as good a place as any to start. This DVD is great. Watching the videos that accompany such classic tunes as Is That Love, Another Nail In My Heart, Hourglass and, of course, Black Coffee In Bed and Tempted will show you how witty and original this band was, and why the Difford / Tillbrook songwriting team are considered to be the Lennon / McCartney of the 80's. Absolutely essential.
