Top 50 Songs

Squeeze was a new wave band formed in England in 1975. The group have released 15 studio albums from 1978 to 2017. The only two members from every incarnation of the band, however, are singer/songwriters Chris Difford (born 11/4/1954 in Greenwich, United Kingdom) and Glenn Tilbrook (born 8/31/1957 in Woolwich, London, England). When Squeeze temporarily dissolved in 1982, the two recorded as a duo. The group had another long studio hiatus from 1998 to 2010 during which time Difford and Tilbrook each released solo albums.
