Song 58 Human League

Human League, Mirror Man, 1982

'Your every wish! Your every dream, hope, desire!' Continuing the year with a song that's all about new beginnings and remaking oneself, and...actually I have no idea what it's about. Wikipedia tells me the subject is probably Adam Ant. No matter. This tune usually gets me in an expansive mood - maybe subconciously I just like thinking about Adam Ant or something. Hope you do too.

Note that here we can see the scrappy ex-cocktail waitress from 'Don't You Want Me', now demoted to part of a heavenly choir oohing and aahing at everything the lead singer chooses to declaim. That'll learn ya, missy.
