Tainted Love – Gloria Jones

So I guess being a child of the 80’s, I sincerely believed that “Tainted Love” by Softcell was the original version of the song. Happily in this case, I was dead wrong.

Listen for yourself. I like this 60’s version a hell of a lot better!

If you prefer the original though, here is John Scalzi doing his rendition of the Softcell rendition complete with English accent.

Hahahah.

    I had no idea SoftCell’s version wasn’t the original. Since I hated theirs with a passion, there’s no contest which is better (and it’s not Scalzi’s).

    Oh I don’t know – Scalzi’s version wasn’t all that bad. And Kate, you need to fix the link to that. It has an http// that shouldn’t be there.
