Flashback: “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell

There have been a few versions of this song through the years.

There was the Gloria Jones version in 1965, and the Marilyn Manson cover in 2001. But the Soft Cell cover from 1982 got my attention in the summer of that year, with the song reaching #8 on the Billboard charts, spending a then record 43 straight weeks on the chart itself.
