    Favourite Human League song

    What was your favourite Human League song?

    Mine was undoubtably "Electric Dreams", co-written by Georgio Moroda. Truly a great song. But they had so many great songs including "Don't you want me" and a personal favourite of mine "Louise". What was your favourite?

    I've included "Tell me when" in this poll even though it's a 90s hit (And because it's too good to leave out!)

    For me it was Mirror Man. I absolutely hate 'Don't you want me' - probably the most overplayed and overated song of the 80s.

    Just out of interest, I thought that 'Together In Electric Dreams' was credited to Giorgio Moroder & Phillip Oakey rather than the Human League?

    I figured someone might come out with that point, but the song is included on their greatest hits album, so I included it.

    I actually don't remember this many hits from the Human League here in the US, but I did see a greatest hits with several songs I've never heard of. Out of the 4 songs I actually do know, I had to vote for "Don't You Want Me", that song is the best, but "Fascination" was a close second!

    I voted for (natch) "Human"! Great song!

    I had to go with Lebanon. That opening bass line still kills me.

    One of the greatest club songs of the 80s.

    "Don't You Want Me" for me, could never be overplayed. It was a classic 80's song.


    "Mirror Man", is that a reflection of yourself Chopper? (I know it's a poor joke )

    Not far from the truth - a good one TCM!!

    Still think that it's well overplayed in the UK as it seemed to appear on every 80's cd, every 80's radio hour and every 80's disco. It's just a pure slab of UK disco cheese, which is fine if that that's what you like but I happen to think that they've done much better songs - 'The Lebanon' and 'Human' as was mentioned by 80sTrivia.

    And then recently what happens? Just as I'm sick to death of 'Don't You Want Me' - we get a car advert in the UK with 'Don't You Want Me' as the theme song....the woman drives off with the guys car at a petrol station, and he's chasing after it saying 'Don't You Want me...wooah wooah wooah woaah'

    I voted for Other. Love Is All That Matters is my favorite song with Human as a close runner-up.

    DONT YOU WANT ME BABY?
    The ultimate song for the hurt soul in the earlie eighties.
    If you were in your teens and -most probably-you were suffering
    from the sweetest disease of all (I hope you remember what i mean...) the is no way you forgot that song.

    Dedicated to my favorite classmate.

    Don't You Want Me. It may be overplayed, but I've still never gotten sick of it after all these years. Too many memories associated with it.

    "Don't you want me". And "The Lebanon" in a closer second place.
