I "should" order a few of their albums, and hear what is beyond "I'm not in Love". It's just they Incessantly played "I'm not in Love" to where I really disliked it , back on the radio in the 70's.

10CC,
Oh yeah whatta great band and where I started was with the album: "The Original Soundtrack" and afterwards I was looking for every other album by this band there was to find. Like Ambrosia from Los Angeles this group of Brits was one of the best of the 1970's.

You can't really go wrong with the first five albums. Almost every track is a distinctive gem. One of the rare bands that could sound funny and musically sophisticated at the same time. It's easier to name songs on those first five albums that AREN'T favorites. (I can do without "The Film of My Love," I guess.)

I only have Deceptive Bends and a Best Of so my favorites are pretty generic:

The Things We Do For love
I'm Not In Love
Feel The Benefit
Good morning Judge

"I'm Not In Love" is the only one I have ever heard and I still love it.

Loved 10CC but mostly after Godley and Creme left or I should say...at different points of their career. But I think they had enough to say musically to put out their best album after G&C left, which was Deceptive bends IMO. They were definitely known as sharp, biting, sarcastic lyricists, heavy on the irony and black humor. So maybe elements of that comes into to play too with their fans when comparing the two eras...before and after Godley And Creme.

I haven't heard their first album. Came on board around the Sheet music one. Then lost them album wise for a couple years but still heard some of the songs. Original Soundtrack and How dare you? I've never heard completely. It wasn't that I stopped liking them...they just weren't part of my world for a few years there.

But loved Deceptive, pretty great album, and a good sampling of their other songs from that period or earlier.

After Deceptive Bends, you're pretty much on your own finding some good stuff.. Bloody Tourists came after Deceptive and it was far from great but had a few very good songs. After that, heard a few things, not impressed. But I liked them enough to revisit some of the earlier music I missed (and even some of the later later stuff, after they were totally out of the spotlight)

Favorite songs: (Not in order)

1. The Wall street shuffle
2. Worst band in the world
3. Good Morning Judge
4. Modern Man Blues
5. Honeymoon with B Troop
6. You've Got a Cold
7. Feel the Benefit, Pt. 1-3
8. Shock on the Tube
9. Reds in My Bed
10. Tokyo

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

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

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.

"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.

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).

Posted on Jul 26, 2012, 11:20:04 PM PDT
Things We Do For Love
I'm Not In Love
Dreadlock Holiday
Cry (Godley & Creme)

That's about it as far as stuff I like by them.

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.
