Human League

"['Dare' was] a very interesting album. My wife and I were in England to see the Police on [UK television show] 'Top of the Pops', and I heard 'Don't You Want Me' – I thought, 'What a fantastic record!' Virgin was putting it out there, and Richard Branson told me, 'I don't know if it's a hit.' I said, 'I'm telling you, it is.' It was an outstanding song – it still gets put in movies – and 'Dare' proved to be an important record at the time."--Jerry Moss


Human League's "Don't You Want Me" was featured in a Swiffer television commercial.

The Human League was the first British artist to reach #1 on Billboard's Pop Singles Chart with "Don't You Want Me."

The single "Human" became A&M Records' 100th Top 10 hit on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
