According to my Insagram feed, all of my friends have turned back in to wee children with the ability to use the internet, orrrrr its Flashback Friday! I wish I could use this pointless term to post music on that feed and be the old grumpy person that says “remember when music was written and played well?!”
Turns out that I can! So for this flashback Friday, I remembered how great this song by 10cc is and wanted to share it with you! It starts off with a beat and riff that reminds me of one of my favorite Damned songs, the abruptly turns into something with vocals that make it sound like a less operatic Sparks song, and the way the guitar riffs trail throughout the song, makes it almost as powerful as a good Led Zeppelin ditty.
My favorite silly lyric:
“You know the art of conversation must be dying when a romance depends on cliches and toupees and threepes”
A threepe?! oh, hilarity.
