Tainted Love. Soft Cell

posted in: Music | 0

Soft Cell’s 1981 chart-topper Tainted Love laments a dysfunctional love relationship in which “Once I ran to you, now I’ll run from you.” The song is a cover of a 1965 northern soul track released by Gloria Jones, and written by Ed Cobb of The Four Preps. It was a major hit for Soft Cell, reaching number one in 17 countries, including the United Kingdom.
