Masters της εκλεκτικής ποπ και μάγοι του στούντιο, οι 10CC άγγιξαν το απόγειο της δημιουργικότητάς τους με το How Dare You, άλμπoυμ του 1976.
Ακούμε το εισαγωγικό “Lazy Ways”, πρώτο από μια σειρά κομψοτεχνημάτων – τη συγκεκριμένη περίοδο στο συγκεκριμένο χώρο, οι 10CC παίζουν με “αντίπαλους” καλλιτέχνες όπως οι Roxy Music, οι Sparks και ο Bowie.

Masters of eclectic pop and studio wizards, 10CC reach their creative peak with How Dare You, the album they released in 1976.
We hear the introductory “Lazy Ways”, first of a long line of masterpieces – in this particular era, in this particular field, the only “rivals” for 10 CC are artists such as Roxy Music, Sparks and Bowie.

❝ Hazy Days
With Lazy Ways
You get less done but more
Out of your days
How can you work yet avoid
Getting out of your lazy ways
You’ll never get up if you don’t get up
You’ll always stay down if you sit around
You’ll never get up if you don’t get up
You’ll always stay down if you sit around
Hazy Days
Lazy Ways
We got less done but more
Out of our days
How can we ever recapture the feeling
Of lazy ways
You’ll never get up if you don’t get up
You’ll always stay down if you sit around
Where nobody cares and nobody tries
‘Cause a daydreams resting on the back of your eyes
On the back of your eyes
Taking five
Bring love to me
With your body
Let me hold you
Endless, endlessly
You’ll never get up if you don’t get up
You’ll always stay down if you sit around
Where nobody cares and nobody tries
‘Cause a daydreams resting on the back of your eyes
On the back of your eyes
Hazy days
Lazy ways
You get less done but more
Out of your days
Crazy days
Lazy ways ❞

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
