Tainted Love ReMixXx / Revised

I mixed this on Band-labs and shared on Youtube, and shared here. I like the version for one and I was testing the compatibility between all social media I’m apart of. But I was using a song I love and by many artists in different genres. Made me curious of how a song could be so amazing 40 years after the remake, about 60 years from the Original release. So. Over 50 years this song is still being played and sampled. So a little history of this amazing song.

In 1964 Gloria Jones, recorded original version it was written by Ed Cobb. She released as the B-side of her single “My Bad Boy’s Comin’ Home.” Song didn’t spark any intrest. Then 9 years later a Richard Searling a DJ in England played it at Club Va Va’s. It had an underground kind of following. Gloria Jones advised by her producer and boyfriend (Marc Bolan)to rerelease the song on a new album. The song still never did anything more than a small underground fad. Bolan was a member of T-rex died in a car accident, the driver was Gloria Jones. She recovered but never returned to music.

In 1981 Soft Cell had Tainted Love, noted as a throw away cover song, just a track as filler. Soft Cell being fans of T-Rex, in honor of Bolan they chose the song over a few other choices. Once they heard it and put their new wave synth sound to it. The vocals were recorded to get levels and check equipment. 1st and only take was used for this throw away cover song. The song shot up the charts reaching #1 in 17 country’s. Funny to think that a band considered this song a throw away song, that is the only song their known for. So most people don’t know of Gloria Jones version, believing Soft Cell to be the originator.

Tainted love has been covered by so many artists, Marilyn Manson and so many more. The song been sampled on even more tracks, with that lazer Moog sound

What started out as an quick trial and error in electronics. Became an interesting adventure, that fate is so complex. If Marc Bolan didn’t die, Soft Cell wouldn’t of chose their only hit song. It’s so weird how things come to be. hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Thank you for Visiting my page, I do really appreciate you so much.
