The Things We Do for Love is the first single from their studio album 10cc 's Deceptive Bends. The two remaining members of 10cc after the break with Lol Creme and Kevin Godley felt any pressure to write commercial songs, read singles, without that duo. With The Things we managed that well.

The previous album How Dare You! was seen as an epitome of progressive rock in the oeuvre of 10cc. by the departure of Godley & Creme showed a change in musical style of the band. There were typical single compositions, which had success in many countries. Progressive rock, however, continued to lurk, influences are present in the singles, but the real progressive rock was held on the LPs . In the case of Deceptive Bends was that Feel the Benefit. The song The Thing We Do for Love is about maintaining a love while miscommunication lying in wait (You think you're gonna break up; then she says she want to make up).

B-side was Hot to Trot, which was not on the original album, stood in a remastered version.
