THEN & NOW: 40 Years of ‘Don’t You Want Me?’

The Human League‘s breakout and biggest and best known song, “Don’t You Want Me?”, is 40 years old! And to celebrate this new milestone, the band have released a brand new mix of the track courtesy of Purple Disco Machine (who also offer a very good remix of Kylie’s “Magic”).

“Don’t You Want Me?” was released on 27th November 1981 and became the Christmas number one in the UK that year, selling over a million and a half copies to date. It also topped the American singles chart selling over a million copies and remains the band’s biggest seller.
