“Human” is a song recorded by British synthpop band The Human League. It was released as the first single from their 1986 album Crash. The track was written and produced by US producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
“Human” became the second million-selling number-one single for The Human League on the US Billboard Hot 100 (after “Don’t You Want Me”) and their second chart-topper on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart (after “(Keep Feeling) Fascination”). Jam and Lewis’ R&B-based production was also popular on American urban radio, bringing the Human League into the top ten of the U.S. R&B chart for the first time. The Song Hit #1 in 88 Countries, however in the UK, where R&B was less popular, “Human” peaked at number eight in the UK singles chart.
It was a welcome success for the Human League, who were starting to suffer from creative stagnation and a slight decline in fortunes after a hugely successful start to the 1980s.
I’m actually shocked this wonderful song still gets played on the radio. (100.3 JACK FM-Dallas, Texas).
