Running time: 6:22

One of the best Synth Pop bands + famous producers of Minneapolis Sound = Crash LP. While the working relationship of the band and the producers "crashed" towards the latter part of the project, the release of the single "Human", composed by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, somehow helped ease the tension much later on. The first single from the album zoomed to the number one spot of U.S. Billboard Hot 100 at the time of its release in 1986. It brought back the band to mainstream popularity 5 years after the release of their classic synth album "Dare".

Human (The Chinese Whispers Mix) was released in Asia in 2003 which featured the voice of Li Ya singing the chorus in Cantonese.

In hindsight, Oakley admitted that the "Crash" LP saved the band's career. Does that mean they've "forgiven" Jam and Lewis for taking full control of the album's production? I certainly hope so. So, just in case you don't like this re-edit, I hope you forgive me too. My bad. Otherwise, enjoy. :)

Amazing re-edit! One of my favourite HL tracks, often overlooked in favour of their earlier 'hit'.
