10cc – The Things We Do For Love


“The Things We Do for Love” is a song by British band 10cc, released as a single in 1976. It later featured on the album Deceptive Bends released in 1977 and was the group’s first release after the departure of band members Kevin Godley and Lol Creme. The song originated during the How Dare You! sessions, but was unpopular with Godley and Creme. Eric Stewart recalled, “While we were recording it, Kevin was coming out with some heavy statements like, ‘I don’t want to do any more crap like this,’ after I played ‘The Things We Do for Love’ to him and Lol.”Record World called it a “well crafted tune with a crisp, pop sound”. Cash Box called it a “pop record that combines the best of a strong Beatles influence with solid rock ’n’ roil and the luxuriant harmonies that characterized [10cc’s] past efforts”
