I have to admit I never really got much past "I'm Not In Love" with them, but I'm interested.

You need to listen to "Dreadlock Holiday" from the "Bloody Tourists" CD. It's quite visual and based on true events.

Love 'em. My five favorites:

1) "Blackmail" - (from "The Original Soundtrack") Woefully overlooked song that has held up well over time.
2) "Dreadlock Holiday" (from "Bloody Tourists") Ditto what Owned By Kitties wrote.
3) "Life Is A Minestrone" (from "The Original Soundtrack") Catchy melody over clever wordplay.
4) "The Wall Street Shuffle" (from "Sheet Music") First 10cc song I ever heard; still one of my faves.
5) "Good Morning Judge" (from "Deceptive Bends") Catchy tune, funny lyrics.

Wow. 5 songs? That's a tough one.

For me, like most people of that time period, 10CC first came to light with "I'm Not In Love". Once I got the "Original Soundtrack" LP and heard the quality of the entire album, I decided to delve more deeply into the rest of their catalogue. And I was never disappointed!

So much so, that I actually credit Crème & Stewart for a big part of my own guitar style - I love the dual harmony guitar leads that they used often, and have incorporated that technique (using overdubs) quite often myself in original songs (mine and others that I've recorded for).

Blackmail
Somewhere In Hollywood
The Wall Street Shuffle
Brand New Day
The Second Seating for the Last Supper
Old Wild Men

Yeah, I know, this is 6 songs. So sue me.

BTW - for anyone seeking to hear a band that carried on the 10cc legacy, try out "Ween" (No, NOT weezer, Ween!). A lot of 10cc influence there (sadly I think I heard they just broke up).

"Donna" for its pastiche strangeness.
"Art for Art's Sake" is such a fun jam.
"Life is a Minestrone" is another fun one.
"Dreadlock Holiday" brings back sunny memories.
And of course "I'm Not in Love" which reminds me of Alan Parsons, but he came after this.

Joseph - Don't have any 10cc in my collection.

What do you consider to be their best three albums?

I've always considered "Dreadlock Holliday" to be their best album, which is strange since it had only Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart from the original 'Hotlegs'. (Look it up if you don't get the reference.) My faves have always been just about everything from the above album, and their early songs like, "Rubber Bullets", "The Dean And I", "The Wall Street Shuffle", "I'm Not In Love" and "Waterfall".

I also bought all of the Godley and Creme music I could find. Their 'gizmo' was a really cool addition to the world of guitar playing.

A tragedy that they broke up. Were well on their way towards being one of the best bands. At least Gouldman is doing his best to keep it going.

Feel the Benefit
Silly Love
Don't Hang Up
Brand New Day
Blackmail

Long live 10cc

10CC had little to say worth hearing after the departures of Godley and Creme, though 'Dreadlock Holiday' was a hoot. IMO the 'How Dare You' album was their creative high point: all weird killer and no conventional filler. Five favourites:

Rubber Bullets
Art For Art's Sake
Don't Hang Up
One Night in Paris
Lazy Days
