95 Songs of Summer, #23 - "How Long" (1975)
No matter what happens from here on out, Paul Carrack will always own a small sliver of the rock continuum, thanks to two songs: "Tempted," on which he sang lead during his short time as a member of Squeeze, and "How Long," another enduring classic which is always the song people make reference to when they talk about the somewhat oblique concept of "pub rock."
"How Long" was all over the radio during the summer of 1975, and remains an enduring classic today. It's a great song, and Carrack's vocal is what puts it over the top.
