Don't You Want Me" is a single by British synthpop group The Human League, released on 27 November 1981 as the fourth single from their third studio album Dare (1981). It is the band's best known and most commercially successful recording and was the 1981 Christmas number one in the UK, where it has since sold over 1,560,000 copies, making it the 23rd most successful single in UK Singles Chart history. It later topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the US on 3 July 1982 where it stayed for three weeks.
The Human League’s lead singer, Phil Oakey wrote Don’t You Want Me after reading a photo-story in a magazine for teen girls. The song tells the story of a man who falls for a cocktail waitress-he turns her into a star but their love sours. Virgin’s chief executive Simon Draper forced the band to release the song as a fourth single, despite Oakey’s objections

In the early 1980s, Sheffield electro-pop pioneers, the Human League, transformed themselves from an indie synth band into a mainstream chart act with huge UK hits such as ‘Love Action,’ ‘Don’t You Want Me,’ and ‘Mirror Ma. This new 19-track collection features some of the group’s biggest hits alongside key early tracks, ace album cuts and collectable B-sides. Everything is taken from the remastered releases, so we have the true mono "Being Boiled (Fast Version)", and Martin Rushent produced "I Love You Too Much". So, Ive downloaded the FLAC archive twice and both times had extraction errors: $ unrar t You Want FLAC. Testing archive You Want FLAC.
