about

Hits From 3000 Years Ago was originally released in 1980 under a different cover. The album, together with the 'Kings Road' and 'Face Of Youth Today' singles contains the songs Squire would play live during the 79/80 period. The sound has an upbeat, almost 'beat group' sound, vocal harmonies and simple guitar/bass/ drums arrangements. It contains the original versions of 'My Mind Goes Round In Circles' and 'Does Stephanie Know?', later re-recorded as a single with Kirsty MacColl on angelic harmonies.

released August 1, 2010

When the Jam moved up from punk upstarts to mod statesmen in 1979, the British kids turned to other mod outfits to satisfy their craving for everything well-dressed and retro. While the Chords followed in the Jam's footsteps, the three other main contenders for the mod followed different musical paths: Secret Affair were a magical blend of punk, soul and pop with a mild dose of prog; the Lambrettas were straightforward power pop; and Squire were a mix of all of the above and more. In fact, if the mod scene hadn't existed, Squire would have still made brilliant, timeless records, no matter what was going on around them. While only releasing one full-fledged album (Get Smart!), singer/songwriter Anthony Meynell would embrace the '60s wholeheartedly while releasing a batch of singles that still managed to sound contemporary while exposing the many influences he wore on his sleeve. While briefly retiring the Squire name, Meynell issued this album of unreleased tracks under his own name in 1981. Not surprisingly, it sounds just like Squire (in fact, this album boasts an alternate version of the Squire favorite "My Mind Goes Round in Circles"). Once again, the songs are top-notch odes to his '60s influences. While The Singles Album is a varied collection of songs, Hits from 3000 Years Ago is a far more cohesive album. The songs are filled with an excitement and wild-eyed innocence that may not get punk enthusiasts excited, but mod fans and power pop fans will eat this up with gusto and passion. It's sugar sweet and ballsy enough to crank up loud while cruising down Main Street on a Saturday night and not be embarrassed about. The music is timeless and more melodic than most albums released in the last 25 years (one tune here has probably more hooks than a modern power pop album). ""I Don't Get Satisfaction"," "B-A-B-Y Baby Love," and "To Keep Me Satisfied" are pure magic with power chords! While not Anthony Meynell's finest work (that honor goes to the Get Smart!), this is solid from beginning to end and actually out-pop's the excellent Singles Album! (The CD version uses the artwork from the second issue of the album, when it was re-re-released in 1983 after the success of Get Smart!). Stephen SPAZ Schnee - All Music Guide

Track Name: I Don't Get Satisfaction
I couldn't get to sleep last night oh
Tossing and turning in the dead of night oh

Wishing I was going on a holiday
Too busy thinking that
I don't get satisfaction

I can't get satisfaction
Just can't keep myself satisfied
Can't get satisfaction
Just can't keep myself satisfied

I couldn't stay awake today oh
Too busy dreaming i was far away oh

Wishing I was going on a holiday
Too busy thinking that
I don't get satisfaction

I can't get satisfaction
Just can't keep myself satisfied
Can't get satisfaction
Just can't keep myself satisfied

What do I get in my bed
I don't get satisfaction
What do I hear in my head
I don't hear satisfaction
I have come to realise
I'm looking for perfection
And I know who's fault it is
But its a, yes its a
Yes it's a waste of time
Yes it's a waste of time
And i don't get satisfaction

I can't get satisfaction
Just can't keep myself satisfied
Can't get satisfaction
Just can't keep myself satisfied
Track Name: Sandy
Sandy - I'm in a different world
Sandy - I want another girl

What happened to you
It's the things that you do
The things that you do Sandy

Sandy - I wanna go out with her
Sandy - I wanna go round with her

It happened today
Its the things that you say
The things that you say Sandy

We met at the station
Shared the same destination
Then i sat down beside her
I had nothing to hide from her
Track Name: My Mind Goes Round In Circles
I don't know you
When I see you
My mind goes round in circles

Every night I lie awake in my bed
I think of things I should have said
I think of things I did instead
My mind goes round in circles

When I'm out I see you everywhere I go
I ask my friends why is it so
That you're the only girl that I don't know
My mind goes round in circles

I don't know you
When I see you
My mind goes round in circles

Tonight's the night I realise i've got a problem
I saw you looking at my best friend
And I don't want the friendship to end
My mind goes round in circles

So I suppose I should find myself another girl
Who's living in another world
Who looks just like the other girl
That made my mind go round in circles

I don't know you
When I see you
My mind goes round in circles

When I lie awake at night
Something deep inside of me
Tells me that it should be alright

I don't know you
When I see you
My mind goes round in circles
Track Name: Live Without Her Love
Live without her love
I've got a new girl
Best one in the world

I've got a new girl
And i just can't live without her love

Down at The Flamingo
She's the one I dig the most

I've got a new girl
Best one in the world
Together we've got something
And i just can't live,
i just can't live without her love

And all my friends they think i'm cool
They copy me -that's a groove
Together we break all the rules

My girl and i we get around
We don't hang out much with the crowd

Now we're going steady
And she's always ready
Together we've got something
And i just can't live,
i just can't live without her love
Track Name: I've Got You On My Mind
I've got you on my mind
You're on it all the time
I've got you on my mind
And i don't know why

I see you every day
I don't know what to say
I've got you on my mind
And i don't know why

It's not the things that you say
It's not the things that you do
But when you say you want me
You make me say i want you

Why -
Have I got you on my mind...
I try -
But i just don't understand
Why you're always on my mind
You're on it all the time
Track Name: B-A-B-Y Baby Love
B.A.B.Y. baby love
My heart was full of ecstacy
B.A.B.Y. baby love
You're love was like a symphony

But now i wish the sky would
open up and let it rain,
And hide the tears rolling down my face
Since you left me i've been thinking
that i should let go.
But i just can't make up,
I just can't make up my mind.

My heart's in love with you baby,
but my head tells me maybe baby.
I should let go.
My heart's in love with you baby,
but my head tells me maybe baby.
I should let go.

B.A.B.Y. baby love
Do you think that love will tie you down
B.A.B.Y. baby love
Don't you have the time to hang around

You came into my life and left
a thousand times,
You left a thousand heartaches behind.
Since you left me i've been thinking
that i should let go.
But i just can't make up,
I just can't make up my mind.

My heart's in love with you baby,
but my head tells me maybe baby.
I should let go.
My heart's in love with you baby,
but my head tells me maybe baby.
I should let go.

B.A.B.Y. baby love
I bet you're wondering how i knew
B.A.B.Y. baby love
About your plans to make me blue

My best friend saw you leave town
with another guy,
You just keep telling me lies.
Since you left me i've been thinking
that i should let go.
But i just can't make up,
I just can't make up my mind.

My heart's in love with you baby,
but my head tells me maybe baby.
I should let go.
My heart's in love with you baby,
but my head tells me maybe baby.
I should let go.
I said i should let go.
Track Name: I Put My Arms Around Her
I met a girl
I didn't know her name
But i put my arms around her

She looked up to me
And then she did the same
When i put my arms around her

What else can i do
I'm trying to get over you
But I put my arms around her
Around her

I took her out
Once upon a dream
Where i put my arms around her

We got together
In shades of green
Where I put my arms around her

What else can i do
I'm trying to get over you
But I put my arms around her
Around her

And she's not the kind of girl
who can walk away from you
Well i put my arms around her
And i put my arms around her
Yes i put my arms around her
And i put my arms around her
I put my arms around her

Track Name: Saturday Shopping
I'm having a party tonight
That's why i'm Saturday shopping
I've got the beer and she's got everything
That's my my fingers are dropping so

I'd rather be anywhere else than
In a town with a bag and a purse
On a Saturday - Saturday
Doing Saturday shopping

Can't get the car into park
Can't keep the wife out of the shoe shops
With all this window shopping
My head is ready to pop well

I'd rather be anywhere else than
In a town with a bag and a purse
On a Saturday - Saturday
Doing Saturday shopping

If i had my own mind
I'd rather stay behind
I need a drink so let's find
A pub where i can unwind
And fade away

Saturday shopping
Saturday shopping
Track Name: Does Stephanie Know
Stephanie wants to know
About all the things in the world
'Cos all she seems to get from life is sorrow

Stephanie misunderstands
Stephanie tries all she can
Her head is filled with false hopes of tomorrow

With every morning a new day starts
Her head's in circles but her heart starts beating fast
Does Stephanie know
Does Stephanie know
Does Stephanie know
Does Stephanie know

Stephanie can't explain
Stephanie takes the blame
Her only hope is one day she'll be stronger

Stephanie walks on her own
Stephanie likes to feel alone
It helps to calm frustration deep inside her

With every morning a new day starts
Her head's in circles but her heart starts beating fast
Does Stephanie know
Does Stephanie know
Does Stephanie know
Does Stephanie know
Track Name: To Keep Me Satisfied

To keep me satisfied
A girl who understands i need to be free
And stays there by my side

This time i won't hesitate
I should tell her before it's too late
Yes i've been searching for a person who can satisfy me

She' needs to be of a special kind
To keep me satisfied
A special kind of girl who's into digging my mind
'Cos i won't compromise

I need to be the only one
'Cos i don't need to be the lonely one
Yes i've been searching for a person who satisfy me

To keep me satisfied
To keep me satisfied
Yes i've been searching for a person who can satisfy me

To keep me satisfied
