Neanderthal Man by Hotlegs

Album: The Very Best Of 10CCReleased: 1970Charted:

  • Hotlegs (Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme) was the house band for Strawberry Studios. The band was named Hotlegs in honor of a secretary at the studio.
  • The band was testing a new drum kit and four-track recorder at Strawberry Studios when they improvised Neanderthal Man. Phillips label chief Dick Leahy happened to be around, thought it had potential, and got them to record it on his label. It sold over 2 million copies world-wide and topped the charts in Italy.
  • The song mostly consists of the chant "I'm a Neanderthal man/You're a Neanderthal girl/Let's make Neanderthal love/In the Neanderthal world."
  • The band renamed themselves 10CC in 1972, a few years after songwriter Graham Gouldman joined the group. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)

I like 10cc, but this has to be one of the most bizarre songs I've ever heard.Dylan - Port Orange, Fl
