293 – The Human League – Love Action (I Believe In Love) (1981)
Written by Philip Oakey and Ian Burden
Produced by Martin Rushent
Label – Virgin
From a world of avant-garde electronica to this masterpiece in a year? Phil Oakey’s Human League up until this point were hard work to say the least. But their first top ten single sees the Sheffield five piece reach pop super stardom via this. The addition of Joanne Catherall and Suzanne Sulley brought out the romantic in Oakey, Jo Callis added to the pop sensibility and the underrated Martin Rushent steered the song to the dance floor.
