I have gained a new addition to my 80s Best of collection. Human League was glam rock synthpop British group that originated in Sheffield. The classic lineup was composed of lead singer Phil Oakey and backup singers Susan Sulley and Joanne Catherall who began as teenagers. The Best of CD contains 15 tracks plus a bonus remix of "Don't You Want Me." I was only familiar with six songs and learned the others were UK hits. Human League was much bigger in their home country. However, both "Don't You Want Me" and "Human" reached number one in the US. The CD also includes "Love Action," "Mirror Man" and "(Keep Feeling) Fascination." More great songs evoking 80s nostalgia.

My sister and I were big fans of the Human League back in the early 80s. And what was so neat was that we sent them a fan letter. We sent it to the address that was on the back of one of their albums and a month later or so, they sent us a poster with each of the band's signatures. We were happily surprised. We didn't think we would receive any reply back when we sent the fan letter!
