Marvin, add me into the 10cc fan club. I listen to them regularly, even now. "Sheet Music" is my favorite, although I have found that "Bloody Tourists" had some diverse, more mature pop, that stays in my head. "Take these Chains" and "Reds in my Bed" are two of the incredibly infectious ones.

G Gouldman also did the theme song for a Farrah Fawcett film, called "Sunburn" -- as well as some songs for an animated film called "Animalympics" - "Sunburn". and "Born to Lose" from Animalympics are also two to be heard, and not forgotten.

Come on Mac, do the Sacroilliac...Johnny went a ridin with his girlfriend on the BackSeat...I remember so many of the clever lyrics...In his eyes, in his ears, in his nose...Oh, Howard Hughes, did your money make you better?...When I first bought the "Rubber Bullets" album, me and my brother laughed so hard, all night long,that we couldnt fall asleep for a long time...They were supposed to be the opening act at a concert with the original Badfinger back in 1974, but they cancelled on me...Ended up seeing them at a big venue, 6 months later, opening up, for(of all people), Johnny Winter...

"Nothing Can Move Me Like My Rock'N'Roll" appeared

on my Japanese Mercury label 'Great Box' set that

I picked up at a 'rock expo' swap meet in the late

80's. great song. About 8 years ago, I picked up a fabulous VHS video collection, '10CC & More' at

the Hollywood Virgin megastore. Fabulous selection of 10cc videos interspersed with Godley/Creme material. Most of the 10cc material is lip synched with the exception of a great live

version of 'Wall Street Shuffle.' A most interesting item is the video 10cc made for the

song 'Dreadlock Holiday' which includes some of

what could only be described as very 'politically

incorrect' footage of Lol Creme surrounded on an

isolated beach by "Four faces,one mad, four brothers from the gutter", and a torrid scene in

the swimming pool with the young lady asking him,

"Would you like something harder?" Look closely

in the background, & you'll see 10cc is the band

playing poolside with the bass drum printed,'10cc

Combo.' A real treat!
