northguineahills: I grew up in that club. Before I should have been allowed in the door I was always backstage in those days. I met 10000 maniacs and watched them shoot one of the first videos on the beach. I walked over with Natalie. She signed my cassette of their first album. Today I wish I bought the record for her to sign. Next time Natalie tours and I going to remind her. Saw Elvis Costello, the DBs, Luna, Love and Rockets and the Church at Einstein

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/28/19 3:42pm The Oscar:

This has been brought up around here before, but "I'm Not In Love" is a stealth WFMU anthem. I feel like it gets played nearly once a week (either in its original form or a cover), and no matter who's playing it, it fits perfectly on their show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/28/19 3:43pm Michele with One "L":

Obsessed with this song. Played a cover a few weeks ago form one of Scott's premiums. Hi Sheila!
  Fri. 6/28/19 3:43pm Neptune Beach Florida:

Einstein A Go Go was the official name of the club and anyone who was someone in the 1980s to about 1991 played there. It was legendary and the miracle of the club was its location and the fact that it survived in Jacksonville Florida which was a smelly industrial city at the time. There were no major colleges nearby at the time.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/19 3:43pm djsheilab:

The Oscar—I was just about to write that "I'm Not In Love" is the great uniter. I don't know many people who are not moved by this song.

I'm not in love is not one of my favorite 10cc songs. I think because it became such a big hit, I couldn't stand to hear it anymore on the radio. A favorite was One Night in Paris.

I heard Siouxsie's version first. Is that why I will always love it more? No. It's simply better, mages-tic, operatic, things the Beatles were too stoned to think about in the day.
