I’m Not In Love, co-written by Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart, features prominently in the soundtrack to the 2014 blockbuster film Guardians of the Galaxy, which grossed $635 million in its first two months in US cinemas and spawned a No 1 album. Loathe Queen. Says Gouldman: “For me it was people like Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Jimmy Webb, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers. The band have continued to regularly tour the world ever since. “All I can say is we knew we’d created something special, no doubt about it,” he says. The result was Sedaka’s hit comeback album Solitaire, produced by Gouldman, Stewart, Godley and Creme, with Stewart acting as engineer. © “That helped, being plugged into that.”. In 2002, the 30th anniversary of the band’s debut hit Donna, 10cc began to creep back into the national consciousness. Creme (guitar, keyboards), who grew up wanting to be a comic artist and brought that cartoon vision to bear on the music, was stunned by the scale of their success. Previous inductees include Noel Coward, Burt Bacharach, Neil Sedaka, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Elton John and Sting. 10cc were on their own.”. For the band’s 40th anniversary year in 2012, Universal Records released a new five-CD box set entitled Tenology, featuring 80 tracks chosen by the four original band members. How sad is that?”. Whether it’s the eight-minute pop opera Une Nuit a Paris, or the No.1 hit pop masterpiece I’m Not In Love, both from The Original Soundtrack (1975) album, no two 10cc records sound the same, “A very important element,” explains Gouldman, “was we were completely self-contained. All four original members enjoyed very successful post-10cc careers. This followed the BMI citation for two million plays (since risen to 3.5m) of Things We Do For Love. “It was the combination of all four of us that made the difference, not only in the song-writing, but in the production values as well,” says Gouldman.
He spent time in New York writing for bubblegum kings Jerry Kazenetz and Jeff Katz., but fed up with being away from home, he returned to the UK to record the songs he had written Stateside with his friends at Strawberry Studios in Stockport. In 1972 Gouldman’s manager Harvey Lisberg (later to become 10cc’s manager) met Neil Sedaka, who was playing a residency at Batley Variety Club in Yorkshire. They agree it was their lack of a coherent image that has meant 10cc have been replaced by Queen as representatives of 70s rock's giddily inventive wing. And so 10cc was born, Donna became the A side and reached No 2 in the UK charts. By the third album they had stopped swapping with promiscuous abandon and largely settled into the Gouldman-Stewart and Godley-Creme axes, although the idea that the former pair were the McCartney (conventionally melodic) to the latter’s Lennon (witty and experimental) was, decides Gouldman, “ridiculous”. "I remember seeing a programme on VH1 that brought dead bands back to life, and it was toe-curlingly embarrassing," says Godley. Early influences on the band included The Beatles and the Beach Boys, but their palate proved wide. Forget the Stone Roses' comeback and the mooted (and denied) Smiths reunion: another great Manchester band has reunited. He cites I’m Not In Love as an example – what began as a pleasant little bossa nova tune became a sumptuous, layered six-minute extravaganza featuring a 250-voice male chorale. “The other thing was whoever wrote the song, it kind of became the property of the four of us. As Rolling Stone magazine put it in 1975, ‘There is more going on in one 10cc song than on the last ten Yes albums.’. The Beatles were progressive and innovative, and 10cc were as well. And so 10cc was born, Donna became the A side and reached No 2 in the UK charts. 10cc ruled the pop world at a time – the 1970s – when the charts were dominated by some of the most creative and colourful artists in pop history. “But that’s just not how things were done in the ‘70s. You could start off with some weird sound and build on it and not know where it was going to go. And on the music scene, the punk thing had come in a big way.”. He spent time in New York writing for bubblegum kings Jerry Kazenetz and Jeff Katz., but fed up with being away from home, he returned to the UK to record the songs he had written Stateside with his friends at Strawberry Studios in Stockport. The band was called Hotlegs and comprised Godley, Creme, Stewart, and briefly Gouldman. He also worked as a producer with The Ramones and Gilbert O’Sullivan. Think think think!’”.
