Tainted Love – Soft Cell (Gloria Jones)
Tainted Love sounds like the 80s in music form, doesn't it? It's not until you listen to Jones' original version from 1965 that you recognize it fits into that era as well. Jones' version wasn't much of a success, but Soft Cell's was in Billboard's Top 100 for 43 weeks.
