They were a super group before anyone ever knew it. 10cc consisted of two sets of songwriters. Graham Gouldman wrote the classic hits “For Your Love,” “Heart Full Of Soul,” and “Evil Hearted You” for The Yardbirds, “Bus Stop” and “Look Through Any Window” for the Hollies and “No Milk Today” for Herman’s Hermits. His partner, Eric Stewart, was a member of Wayne Fontana and The Mindbenders scoring hits with “Groovy Kind Of Love” and “The Game Of Love.” Kevin Godley and Lol Creme (with Eric Stewart) were members of the group Hotlegs scoring the hit “Neanderthal Man.” After 10cc, they went on to record hits under the name Godley and Crème (“Cry”) and produce music videos for the likes of U2, Paul McCartney, Sting, The Beatles (“Real Love”), Phil Collins, Rod Stewart and others. This song was originally from the band’s second (and best) album “Sheet Music” from 1974. Today, most of us remember them from their indelible hits “I’m Not In Love,” “The Things We Do For Love,” “Dreadlock Holiday,” “The Wall Street Shuffle,” “Donna” and “Art For Art’s Sake.” Graham Gouldman currently tours around the world with a version of 10cc today.

I’m your Uncle Marty as The 3D RadioActivity unleashes our 471st experience. We’ve been going crazy playing BOOGIE from the cradle to the crypt, because it’s a mighty short trip, when all of us crawled on our hands and knees, forward to present day because even if you’re old and grey, and hear a boogie, it melts your troubles away.
