80’s Video of the Week-The Buzz!
This week’s 80’s Video Of The Week is “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell!
This video has it all. 80’s euro-hair. Close ups ripped off from Thompson Twin videos, and an opening hook that none of us can forget.
The song itself was written by Ed Cobb of the Four Preps, and recorded by Gloria Jones.
The Soft Cell version came out in 1981, with a drastically different arrangement.
If you remember “Silkie’s” on Yakima Avenue (now Johnnie’s On The Ave), you WILL remember “Tainted Love”
