Tainted Tainted Love


I had no idea until just now that the 1981 Soft Cell hit "Tainted Love" is actually a cover of a 1965 Gloria Jones song.  For those of you who don't know, Gloria Jones was also the longtime girlfriend of T-Rex frontman and (arguably) founder of glam rock, Marc Bolan, and was behind the wheel of their Mini when it struck a sycamore tree on September 16, 1977 (also the day before my parents got married) causing Bolan to meet his untimely death. It's a small world?



On a side note, this makes me a little less upset about Rihanna sampling the 1981 version of "Tainted Love" for her 2006 song "SOS."

  1. This Fan Banner for the New Orleans Saint Fan is a great way to show the neighbors who you're rooting for on gameday! This pleated fan bunting is made of 100% nylon, measures a 27"x57" in size, and has three metal grommets along the top header for easy hanging. The NFL team colored panels are ruffled and the insignias are embroidered into our New Orleans Saint Fan Banner which results in a durable and quality banner.
