Kevin Tihista's Red Terror - Don't Breathe A Word - 'Sucker'
I first heard this track on a covermount CD from one of the music magazines - can't remember which one - but it worked, in that I bought the album. Again and again it's the piano that gets me: starting at 2:22, counter to the vocal, and stronger again at 3:24. Maybe it's because I can't play the piano, and always wanted to, that it's so often the piano that I hear.
