Squeeze, "Tempted" (1980)
Penned by Squeeze's songwriting team of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, "Tempted" was sung by journeyman keyboardist Paul Carrack, who would last only one album with the band. (He later had hits as a solo artist and with Mike and the Mechanics.) Tilbrook, the group's usual lead singer, got a few lines in the second verse, as did an almost unrecognizable Elvis Costello (who produced the track). The song, Squeeze's first to crack the American charts, ended up being the band's iconic hit.
