10CC. One of the best bands ever to produce music and their lyrics are unbelievable.
Here is their longest track (11.5 mins), brought together from two unfinished songs which they merged and made this amazing track.
This is my absolute favourite 10CC track of all time. Give your ears a treat, sit back and enjoy, you will definitely 'Feel The Benefit'.
And, yes, the track really does finish exactly like that, strange as it seems.
Nice reminder of a great band, though sadly I can't listen to it - being almost totally deaf.
I had all their albums and agree that their lyrics were amazing.
I saw them live at Liverpool's Empire theatre when they were touring their new "Original Soundtrack" album - superb.
Weirdly, one of my favourite tracks was "Old Wild Men" from Sheet Music.
Although it's referring to musicians, I reckon it's pertinent to us photographers.
Cheers Keith,I feel for you my friend, I have hearing aids but I can still appreciate music using good quality earphones/plugs when listening on the PC or my MP3 player or my aids when watching TV, especially when I put concert DVD's on.
I have a couple of 10CC concert DVD's which are excellent and all of their early albums. Must admit that Sheet Music is one which I haven't given much of a chance so I'll give it another go and listen out for Old Wild Men.
My wife has a Cochlear Implant and she gave up on listening to music after she got the implant, it just became noise to her. And she almost had a music degree before she lost too much hearing to continue.Cheers Keith,
I've tried everything to try and continue enjoying music but nothing works.
My hearing aids cost three and a half grand and are brilliant with speech, but even with the specially-programmed music setting I cannot identify vocalists or instruments and half the time I don't even know what piece of music I'm listening to.
That's why all my lovely hi-fi gear got sold, including my precious vinyl collected over 45 years.
Recently, out of desperation, I tried experimenting with some CD's I'd kept, putting them through some good gear I have left.
The only thing I enjoyed was some great folk music from John Kirkpatrick. His accordion playing and clear voice managed to tickle the old brain cells into some semblance of recognition and pleasure.
So, as I often say to other people, look after your lug'oles folks.
Do you have a favourite ELO song?
ELO - music from the past that sounds like it’s from the future.
