It took The Blow covering "I'm Not in Love" for me to discover that it was originally recorded by a band called 10cc in 1975. Yes, that's right. The quintessential 1980's electronic pop song was recorded smack dab right in the middle of the 1970's. For The Blow's version, they strip it way down into an almost a capella cover with a few electronic keys here and there. It's still as easy listening as it could possibly be, but The Blow are a wee bit hipper than 10cc has been for over forty years. As with the best covers, this one is fun, whether or not you like "I'm Not in Love." Even if you don't, you can still appreciate an oddball cover of it.
