About The Human League

The story behind the success

The Human League is a band that has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success during the 80s and early 90s. Their first complete album, “Reproduction”, drew inspiration from the work of the German band Kraftwerk, one of the most influential figures of electronic music. Up to the present day, they have released eight other studio albums, four EPs as well as 30 singles. Some of the most famous hits of The Human League are: “Mirror Man”, “Don’t You Want Me”, “(Keep Feeling) Fascination”, “Love Action (I Believe in Love)”, “Being Boiled”, “Open Your Heart”, “Tell me When” and “Human. Five of the band’s albums and 8 of their singles have even made it to UK Top 10.

The trace in history

The band made history for being one of the first bands that used synthesisers and electronic beats to become widely popular. The Human League reached the peak of its success while Phillip Oakey was in charge. The artist made a really smart move when he invited female singers Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley to join The Human League. The band didn’t become successful only in England. Music fans from the US were equally ecstatic about The Human League, and their songs “Don’t You Want Me” and “Human” even became no. 1 hits in America. The band has exerted a lasting influence on the worldwide music scene, inspiring many ensuing electropop and synthpop bands and artists, like Pet Shop Boys, Moby or Little Boots.
