INFO > Penned by Ed Cobb, “Tainted Love” was first recorded by Gloria Jones and included as the B-side to her 1965 single, “My Bad Boy’s Comin’ Home.” Although unsuccessful upon its initial release, the song enjoyed newfound popularity during the height of the UK’s Northern Soul scene in the 1970s. Soft Cell’s subsequent 1981 cover was a massive international hit, climbing to the top of the singles charts in 17 countries. Impedance’s house version of “Tainted Love” was a minor hit in 1989.
