Human - The Human League

Continuing with our Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis Flyte Tyme weekend, I present to you the #1 hit song “Human” by The Human League, complete with Wikipedia notes…

In February 1986 The Human League were flown out to Minneapolis to work at Flyte Time studios with Jam and Lewis. After initial enthusiasm on both sides the working relationship began to break down.

After 4 months in Minneapolis, Oakey pulled the band out of further recording and they returned to Sheffield leaving Jam and Lewis to complete the album using session musicians.

Although at the time the band had all but washed their hands of the album post production, when released it quickly became an unexpected success. One of the Jam and Lewis compositions, “Human”, was released as the album’s first single and became the Human League’s second number-one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
