Jones’ “Tainted Love” blew up in the UK’s northern soul scene in the ’70s ~ British club DJ Richard Searling bought a used copy ~ above a trip to the US. After ~ “Tainted Love” got a an increase from the north soul scene, Gloria Jones tape-recorded a new version in 1974, but it failed come chart.

When Soft Cell chose to give the song a walk in 1981, they readjusted the an essential and slowed the tempo. They operated with producer Mike Thorne to produce the electronic arrangement for the song.
