Godley & Creme - Cry (Extended Remix) 12" 45

Godley & Creme are a duo of English pop musicians & music video directors, Kevin Godley & Lol Creme. The pair began releasing albums as a duo after splitting from the pop band 10cc.

"Cry" was released as a single in1985. The song climbed as high as #16 on the Billboard charts.

The duo also directed the song's music video, which featured faces blended into each other using analog cross-fading, anticipating the digital effect of morphing used in a very similar way in Michael Jackson's 1991 video, "Black or White". Years later, the "Cry" video was shown in an episode of MTV's Beavis & Butt-head. The song was also used on Miami Vice in the episode "Definitely Miami" (1986), which featured Ted Nugent & French actress Arielle Dombasle. I’ve included the song “Art for Art’s Sake” from How Dare You! by 10cc. from 1975 on which KG plays drums, temple bells, woodblocks, & sings back-up & LC plays guitar, marracas, Moog, recorder & sings 2nd lead & back-up vocals, because I felt like it. Keep it or delete it, it’s up to you.
