Broken Peach, the unusual Spanish pop band, breaks the rules with a Halloween Special cover of Human League’s Don’t You Want Me.
Broken Peach puts their own twist on The Human League’s Don’t You Want Me.
Don’t You Want Me is a song by The Human League. It was released on 27 November 1981 as the fourth single from The Human League’s third studio album, Dare (1981). The band’s best known and most commercially successful song, it was the biggest selling UK single of 1981, that year’s Christmas number one, and has since sold over 1,560,000 copies in the UK, making it the 23rd-most successful single in UK Singles Chart history. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the US on 3 July 1982, where it stayed for three weeks.
Broken Peach is known for two things that should be at opposite ends of what’s possible: precision in arrangement, performance and choreography, and the sheer joy of the music — yet somehow they pull it off, and the results are riveting. Some bands do it by raw energy alone, but with Broken Peach, that incredible energy is focused and engaged with an almost supernatural precision. The result is nearly always a laser-sharp musical and visual performance that holds your consciousness in complete thrall.
