The Human League – Love Action (I Believe In Love)
Multi-Coloured Swap Shop
Yesterday I came across a band called “Care Bears on Fire” and immediately thought “What the fuck is that?” Apparently they are teen band that has gotten quite a bit exposure through appearances on Nickelodeon. That’s precisely what’s wrong with kids these days. Take this Human League appearance on the BBC children’s program “Multi-Coloured Swap Shop” back in ’81. Here is Philip Oakey singing about being a husband and a lover and how he likes watching your “love action.” Now that’s the music kids really need to be listening to. That’s the era that I grew up in and I turned out nearly perfect. It’s time to stop filling kids minds with absolute crap like Care Bears on Fire and start them on a serious dose of synthpop Philip Oakey style.
