Flashback Friday: 10CC

7th June 2013

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.
