I’ve been really into this song the past week.
Can’t decide which version I like best.
Interesting note about the above cover: it’s from an album called Guilt By Association which features a bunch of indie artists covering songs that are their guilty pleasures. Most of them are pretty great. Apparently, the label that put it out had a contest for people to direct a video for this song and the above video won.
Also, I just found out there is a new volume out, so I gotta find that. Apparently, someone has “Tainted Love” as a guilty pleasure. Why? That’s an amazing song. Sure, it gets pigeonholed as some synth-pop, one-hit wonder 80s song, but the song and the band are genuinely amazing. Also, the Soft Cell’s popular version of the song is already a cover of an equally great song by Gloria Jones. So eat a dick, My Brightest Diamond (horrible band name).
