Nik Kershaw – Human Racing

Nik Kershaw- Human Racing (1984)

This was Nik Kershaw’s first album and was released in 1984 by MCA Records.

Was I really into this music for 5 minutes back in 84? Erm …. maybe! The horror!! I was only 5 at the time though!

I guess it actually contained some decent pop music. Despite the album’s dumb title, it certainly spawned a shitload of hits both in the UK and even in the USA.

The title track was a top 20 hit in the United Kingdom, peaking at #19.

The album’s first single in the UK was “I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me,” which peaked at #47 upon its first release. “Wouldn’t It Be Good” became Kershaw’s first major hit, spending three weeks at the UK #4 spot and logging his longest chart run there. It is also the song Kershaw is best known for in the U.S., where he narrowly missed going Top 40, peaking at #46.

Further hits from the album were “Dancing Girls” and the title track, but the album’s first single would become a smash hit upon its second UK release in 1984. Kershaw’s Human Racing album peaked at #70 in the U.S.
