I swear, this is one of those 80s songs that everyone names when naming 80s songs, which is weird since the song was written in the 60s.

Soft Cell took the song to the mainstream in the UK in ’81, and the US in ’82, and brought with it the trend of Soft Cell just covering old songs from the 60s.

The extended version of the song is a weird kick-beat combo of both “Tainted Love” and “Where Did Our Love Go.” I don’t know. The song’s okay. It’s not great, it’s not even good. It’s very 80s, and it exists to be 80s.
