Mind – Blown. These Songs are Actually Covers!

Soft Cell – ‘Tainted Love’

We all recognize and love the hit “Tainted Love” as the dark synth-pop smash by Soft Cell, but did you know that it’s a cover? The song first entered this world nearly 20 years prior by Gloria Jones and writer Ed Cobb. Jones recorded the song in 1965, but it wasn’t until Soft Cell’s version that the song got the fame it deserved.
