The Making Of 10cc's "I'm Not In Love"

"I'm Not In Love" was the biggest hit by the 70's band 10cc that's been covered by all types of artists all over the world. It's a pretty well-written song and considered a masterpiece in many ways, especially the production.

The band was really ahead of their time in the way they used samples as the bed for this track. For those of you who never used magnetic tape machines, you'll be both horrified and amazed to see what they had to go through to get what can so commonly be done with any sampler today.

This video is great in that it breaks down the production techniques and allows you to hear the isolated tracks, then how they fit in the track with the other instruments.

A great song and a great story. Even as a kid, I noticed those backing vocals and loved them. But I had no idea the lengths they went to in order to get that sound. Another great post!
