80s Timeworn Twelves: 'Don't You Want Me'

"Don't You Want Me" by Human League (1982)

"Don't You Want Me" topped both the US and UK charts in 1981-82. It also topped the charts in 5 other countries and is listed as the 25th most successful single in UK history. It would be the only chart topping single in The Human League's native country of the UK, but would score another #1 in the US four years later in 1986 with "Human."

Side A of the 12 inch single featured a "Special Extended Dance Version" which added 3 1/2 minutes to the track. Side B was the track "Love Action (I Believe In Love)" which was also from the Dare album. It was previously released in the UK and became the band's first top ten hit. Listen to both tracks below!

  1. This was the jam! The "I'm Too Sexy" anthem for men before Right Said Fred came along in the 90's. I'm sure many a dude with the Tom Selleck porn stache and the open shirt with the medallions flashing used this track to come on to unsuspecting gals in the clubs.
