Song of the Week: Activision Anthology PS2 - Squeeze - Pulling Muscles from a Shell

I first heard this song in the Activision Anthology for PS2. Since then I've heard the song playing in Walgreens, Mexican restaurants, and even a few arcades. It's weird how that works. I've never heard anything else by Squeeze and I don't want to ruin this great song.

Say what you will about 1980s music, but some songs just capture the era in the same way as classic games.

It might be a stretch for "video game song of the week," but who's going to stop me?

Thanks to the youtube uploader as well.

I have this collection and it was the first time I ever heard "Pulling Muscles from a Shell" as well. It was also the first time I heard a lot of songs from that game such as "We're Not Gonna Take It," "Take On Me" and others.

This is a great disc. Nuthin' like a Friday Night fishing Derby match with the wife while listening to 80's classics!
