Originally done by British art rock band 10cc. This song incorporated the backing of a large wordless choir, which in reality was the group's voices. It was painstakingly built up from chord loops and multi tracks: some 256 vocal dubs were required to complete the lush harmonies behind Eric Stewart's vocal. The idea for the song came from Stewart saying to his wife that if he kept saying "I Love You" over and over, it wouldn't mean anything even though he did love her. The whispered vocals of "Be quiet, big boys don't cry" came from the secretary of Strawberry Studios, Kathy Redfern. The four members of 10cc had been on the British music scene for a while when they formed. Vocalist/guitarist Graham Gouldman was a former member of the Mockingbirds and had written hits for Jeff Beck, the Yardbirds, the Hollies and Herman's Hermits. Singer/guitarist Eric Stewart was a former member of Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders, and vocalists/multi-instrumentalists Lol Creme and Kevin Godley were both highly regarded studio musicians. They originally formed in 1970 as a session band known as Hotlegs, and had a surprise hit with "Neanderthal Man." They then signed to pop mogul Jonathan King's UK label and recorded 11 UK Top Ten hits, including two other #1s, "Rubber Bullets " in 1973 and "Dreadlock Holiday" in 1978. Creme and Godley left the band by the time "Dreadlock Holiday" was recorded to concentrate on video production as well as developing the Gizmo, a guitar modification device they invented. They had one other US Top Ten hit in 1977, "The Things We Do For Love," which reached #5. The Pretenders recorded this in 1993 for the movie Indecent Proposal - this version was produced by Produced by Trevor Horn. The original was used to open the 2014 movie Guardians of the Galaxy, where a character is listening to the song on a Walkman. Other films that have used the song include: The Stud (1978) The Virgin Suicides (1999) Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999) Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004) He's Just Not That Into You (2009) Among the TV series to use it are: EastEnders That '70s Show The Office Veronica Mars Medium Big Love

In 1987 American soul singer and backing vocalist Dennis Englewood did a soul ballad version of their song sans the whispered part from his only one lone album, "Satisfaction". In 1990, the duo Will To Power released a cover version that went to #7 US. Two years earlier, Will To Power had a #1 US hit with a medley of two cover songs: Peter Frampton's "Baby, I Love Your Way" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird."
