3. What is 'I'm Not in Love' about?
Written by Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman, Stewart came up with the idea for 10cc's most famous song after his wife of eight years asked him why he didn't say "I love you" more often. At first, Godley and Creme weren't fond of it, and it wasn't until they heard staff members humming the tune that they gave it another shot. Stewart spent three weeks recording Gouldman, Godley and Creme singing "ahhh" 16 times for each note, creating a 'choir' of 48 voices for each note.
