"Human on the Inside" was one of many tracks from the album Underworld to be produced by Divinyls drummer Charley Drayton. The two previously released singles "I'm Jealous" and "Heart of Steel" were produced by Peter Collins and Keith Forsey respectively, and although "I'm Jealous" was a hit, "Heart of Steel" did not even chart. This created an air of doubt as to whether a third single would be successful. "Human on the Inside" did manage to chart but only peaked at #59 on the Australian ARIA singles chart.[4] Likewise, the album Underworld proved to be unsuccessful and only just made the top fifty of the Albums Chart.[5]
