The Human League’s second #1 in the US -the other being ‘Don’t You Want Me’ back in 1981. I didn’t realize the song was written by James Harris III and Terry Lewis who had written the #1 hit for Janet Jackson six weeks earlier. All totaled The Human League had 8 Hot 100 singles from 1981-95 with 6 making the Top 40.
A fairly simple song, but I’ve always loved it.
Yet another song by them that I personally like more than ‘Don’t You Want me?’
