"Human Touch" is a 1983 single performed by Australian musician Rick Springfield from his album Living in Oz. The song reached number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S.[1] It was also his most successful hit in the UK, peaking at number 23;[2] this also led to a performance on Top of the Pops. Because of this being Springfield's only top 40 single in the UK, he is considered a one-hit wonder in England, despite the fact that "Jessie's Girl" is his biggest hit worldwide. However, that song only peaked at 43 in 1984 for Springfield, 3 years after its release in the UK.

The song was featured on the pop radio station Flash FM in 2006's Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, a prequel set in 1984. Some of the music video is about some Marvel characters like Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell) and Nova Corps.
