Music from the UK – The Human League

The Human league , founded 1977 in Sheffield / England  was one of the first bands which played electronic music , and is still one of the well known bands of the New Wave aera. This title has been a dancefloor hit in the clubs ( and still later on when they remastered it 1982 ) One title, i will never get enough from ” Being Bolied ” ( listed in The Wire’s “100 Records That Set The World On Fire (While No One Was Listening)”)

” Dont you want me “or ” Human ”  have alo been  hits afterwards  , but nothing compares to this song , believe me

Listen to the voice of Buddha
Saying stop your sericulture
Little people like your offspring
Boiled alive for some Gods stocking
Buddha’s watching, Buddha’s waiting

Just because the kid’s an orphan
Is no excuse for thoughtless slaying
People don’t forget this torture
Just because you call her mother
Doesn’t mean that she’s your better

Once more with the voice of Buddha
He’ll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You may slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim

Listen to the voice of Buddha
Saying stop your sericulture
He’ll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You may slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim

Listen to the voice of Buddha
Listen to the voice of Buddha
Listen to the voice of Buddha

One thought on “Music from the UK – The Human League

  1. I personally never liked them, but one can’t deny they were innovators and in the vanguard of the new wave, and they could write a catchy song. Reached their zenith with ‘Dare’ , which was their Sgt. Pepper, really. A lot of their success can be attributed to the skills of their producer, Martin Rushent, who sadly died last year. At the time of his death, Rushent was working on a 30th anniversary version of Dare, remixed like Love and Dancing but using musical instruments instead of synthesisers – and I would have loved to have heard the results.
