Goldfrapp – Human

What Is It?

The YouTube video Goldfrapp – Human by the YouTube channel Strange Peer:

Goldfrapp – Human

Here is the description for this video:

T’chut… 😉

They fall
From your mouth
Propelled by your belly
And your tongue
I shiver when you shake
And fold into jelly
I think I loved you more than me

Are you human
Or a dud
Are you human
Or d’you make it up

My baby cherry slipped
Pass me through your fingertips
Throw me down like an old rag
I’m not standing
Don’t look back

Are you human
Or a dud
Are you human
Or d’you make it up

Are you human
Or a dud
Are you human
Or d’you make it up

They went searching
For your body
They went looking but there’s nobody
Who smells like you
Who looks like you
You’re not human…too

Are you human
Or a dud
Are you human
Or d’you make it up

Are you human
Or a dud
Are you human
Or d’you make it up

Goldfrapp – Human

What Is It?

The song Human by the English electronic duo Goldfrapp from their 2000 music album Felt Mountain:

Here is how Wikipedia describes this song:

Human” is a song by British electronic music duo Goldfrapp.

The song was written by the group with Startled Insects‘ Tim Norfolk and Bob Locke and produced by Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory for the duo’s debut album Felt Mountain (2000).

“Human” is the only track on Felt Mountain with additional songwriters.

It was released as the album’s third single on 26 February 2001 and reached number 87 on the UK Singles Chart.

The song was sampled by American rapper Kanye West for his track “Freestyle 4”.

It was also used in the closing credits of the second season of the French spy show The Bureau.

“Human” received generally positive reviews from pop music critics.

Flak Magazine reviewer Eric Wittmershaus called the song a “surprisingly-daring-yet-easy-to-listen-to genre-bender” that “is easily the disc’s standout track.”[2]

Sacha Esterson of Musicomh.com described the track as “middle eastern-influenced upbeat gem” that is “particularly fantastic.”[3]

NME wrote that “Human” “sounds like Shirley Bassey, but with none of the dance nous the Welsh warbler brought to her collaboration with the Propellerheads.”[4]
