THE HUMAN LEAGUE – Almost Medieval

From The Human League’s debut album Reproduction (1979).

Reproduction contains nine tracks of electronic/synthpop with some elements of industrial music, and was recorded during six weeks at The Human League’s studio in Sheffield. The recordings were co-produced by Colin Thurston, who had previously worked on some key recordings such as Iggy Pop’s “Lust for Life” and Magazine’s “Secondhand Daylight”, and who went on to produce numerous hit albums of the 1980s, most notably for Duran Duran. The album was composed and engineered by The Human League (Oakey/Ware/Marsh) and Bob Last for Virgin Records. The album includes The Human League’s cover version of “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'”, a hit single in 1965 for The Righteous Brothers.

There’s something in your soul that makes me feel so old
In fact, I think I’ve died about six hundred times
There’s less of me now and more of me then
I’m moving back to the age of men

Jump off the tarmac, there’s no stagecoach speed limit
Outside the office hangs the man on the gibbet
Soft lenses, grow to glasses
Small world, dimly seen through cataracts

Your program, newspaper
So they say

Rumor spread by word of mouth
Jump onto the escalator
Press the button on the lift
Raise the dust on old stair carpets

Endless treads like waves of regret
Now it seems, I’m going madder
Falling off this rotting ladder
Soft lenses, grow to glasses

Small world, dimly seen through cataracts
Jump on to the escalator
Press the button on the lift
Raise the dust on old stair carpets

Endless treads like waves of regret
Now it seems, I’m going madder
Falling off this rotting ladder
Your program, newspaper

So they say
Rumor spread by word of mouth
Jump onto the escalator
Press the button on the lift

Raise the dust on old stair carpets
Endless treads like waves of regret
Now it seems, I’m going madder
Falling through this rotting ladder

There’s something in your soul that makes me feel so old
In fact, I think I’ve died about six hundred times
There’s less of me now and more of me then
I’m moving back to the age of men

Jump off the tarmac, there’s no stagecoach speed limit
Outside the office, hangs the man on the gibbet
Jump off the tarmac, there’s no stagecoach speed limit
Outside the office, swings the man on the gibbet
