Twin Shadow

I’m Not In Love,” 10cc’s exquisite 1975 cheese-nugget, has long functioned as a certain sort of litmus test. If you are actually into the craft of pop music, the little studio intricacies, the weird sounds that you can sometimes find in bazillion-dollar dentists’-office pop songs, then there’s a good chance you love the song. Twin Shadow’s George Lewis, Jr. is evidently about that studio-pop life. He and his band recently posted video of themselves doing a tender acoustic cover of the song in a dark room somewhere, with a murky non-sequitur interlude included. Watch it below.

Twin Shadow’s 2012 album Confess is not a thing you should forget about.

  1. Yes, “I’m Not in Love” is a gem of cheese but there is something worth redeeming in it. Tori Amos did a fantastic cover of it.

  2. Cheese or not, it’s one of the greatest pop songs of all time.

  3. I always thought it said, “be poised and quiet” instead of the whispered, “big boys don’t cry.” I still wish it did. It would elevate the song’s redeeming qualities and cut out a considerable amount of the cheese. Either way, I will imagine it does say, “be poised and quiet” and enjoy the hell out of this cover.
