MIX: 10cc: Favorites from the Godley & Creme Years


10cc: Favorites from the Godley & Creme Years.

I created a monster. So someone, for some reason, requested a “10cc mix” on Tumblr. Unfortunately, the last 10cc album I’ve listened to is 1980’s Look Hear, which is probably further into their career than a lot of other people got, but doesn’t totally cover their whole discography up to 1983 whe they stop, so I figured I’d stick to the era when Kevin Godley and Lol Creme were still in the band. That gives me their first four albums to work with. There’s plenty of good stuff after those dudes leave in 1976 but this seemed like a good way of making this mix manageable and sincere.

The focus here was just on the songs I really like, so it’s not comprehensive at all and focuses on their ironic soft-rock ballads rather than their slightly-less-ironic-than-Zappa rockers. And quite a few hits are missing but you can go cop a “greatest hits” collection if you want that, but as the Bruce McCulloch once said, “greatest hits album are for housewives and little girls.” Oh yeah, of course, “I’m Not In Love” is included here because it is probably the best song ever made. It’s also used really well in the movie Deuce Bigalow. Anyways, enjoy.

  • “I’m Mandy, Fly Me”
  • “Somewhere In Hollywood”
  • “I’m Not In Love”
  • “Johnny Don’t Do It”
  • “How Dare You”
  • “Don’t Hang Up”
  • “Blackmail”
  • “The Worst Band In The World”
  • “Art For Arts Sake”
  • “Speed Kills”
  • “Clockwork Creep”
  • “Headline Hustler”
  • “Brand New Day”

  2. The structure for the site is a bit off in Epiphany. Nevertheless I like your web site. I might have to install a normal browser just to enjoy it.

  4. We got in a game of our current mntisaay of Eclipse and our first games of Dominion (Hinterlands and Seaside) in probably a year. Our first new game was Village, which I absolutely loved. It is a medium weight euro with an interesting mechanic in that you have to strategically kill (in a sense) your own workers.I should be able to get in more Eclipse today with the possibility of Cutthroat Caverns, Ninjato and Last Will, too.
