I bought a novel,some perfume,a fortune all for you
But it's not my conscience that hates to be untrue

In my opinion, one of the greatest songs EVER written!

It's a great song, of course. It's probably my favorite by Squeeze (or maybe that's "Annie Get Your Gun" or even "Another Nail in My Heart").

Gotta love Squeeze. I was late to the party. I actually didn't even know who they were until "Hourglass" in 87'. I love "Tempted" and believe it is my favorite.
I am convinced Beyonce's career would not be where it is, if she had dark skin.

Another favorite of mine is "Black Coffee In Bed" music

An absolute all time classic! But I prefer this version of the song (sorry about the lame video though, just listen to the song wink ).

Man, if any band epitomizes the late '70's- early '80's for me, it's Squeeze.

GREAT song. I also like "Black Coffee in Bed" a lot.

RIP, Prince. A legend has left us, and you will be forever missed. cry
