We Act
Norman Iceberg

Original 1990 mix newly remastered in 2009.

The search for our true identity in today's world where we sometimes feel like we absolutely have to fit in, to be what people expect us to be in order to barely be accepted, approved of. The final realization that we can only feel good when we are being true to ourselves... just us, no matter what it is. Whatever makes us happy is the way.

"We Act" and its theme of introspection predated Norman's return to his real birth name Bedard.

Be My Human Tonight
Norman Iceberg

'Let me see the woman in you. Let me see the man in you'.
The statement Norman was trying to make with his very first release was that we, men and/or women, all are equal; and it's ok to express and balance our feminine (yin) and masculine (yang) energies.
"Be My Human Tonight" explores situations and emotions experienced by man/womankind.
A universal message of liberation on a dance beat.
