Remember This? 10CC - I'm Not In Love

Back in 1975 - the year before I graduated High School - the British group 10CC released the single "I'm Not In Love", which reached number 1 in the UK charts and made number 2 in the USA, their first hit here.  If you recall the song, it had a very other-worldly sound to it; a heavily multi-tracked vocal backing that sort of made you think "What is that?". The video below gives a fascinating, if somewhat technical, insight into the making of the song - and bear in mind, this was all done mechanically with tape loops and the like, apart from a (then) rather sophisticated Moog synthesizer to provide some percussion.
