You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling

Bildergebnis für human league reproduction

These days Empire State Human by Human League shuffled up on my mobile phone when I was on the way back home from work. Listening to this very old song made me want to listen to their first record from 1979 once again. I bought this record without knowing anything about Human League because I was fascinated by the cover. The cover shows the feet of a man and two woman seemingly dancing on a number of babies. The music I got was far away from most I ever heard before. Strictly electronic sounds with a lot of rhythm and melodies got this record on heavy rotation in these days. Looking back after decades I have to say it was probably industrial before industrial was born.

Human League - You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling

And here is the original from 1964 by the Righteous Brothers:

Fantastic. This is still my favourite Human League LP Walter.

I've always felt that Reproduction was the soundtrack to some unmade film of an unknown JG Ballard novel. Everything is off kilter and filled with forced emotions. You can hear what must have intrigued David Bowie when he first heard Human League. After almost 40 years it still sounds futuristic and groundbreaking.
