HOW MEN ARE?

Up_the_junction_cover

A soap opera story in just over three minutes.

The boy about town gets caught out with his trousers down. He can’t cope with the fact that he has to grow up and take responsibility. The woman of his dreams soon moves on and all he has left are bittersweet memories.

mp3 : Squeeze – Up The Junction

1979. A massive hit and one of my favourite songs of all time, albeit as a 16-year old I didn’t quite understand the full nuances. But now I’m 51 and I’ve seen it this story play out in real life far too often over the years.

Tears and saying sorry are just not enough.

But the male side of the species just never learn.

  1. Seem like these stories belong to men’s life. I’ve also seen enough of them. And I agree – one of the best songs of all time. Squeeze reached the level Ray Davis set years before with this song. Enjoy your vacation JC
