Soft Cell - Tainted Love

|

On this date in 1981, Soft Cell released their third single, "Tainted Love". It was backed by "Where Did Our Love Go?". There was also a version that had "Memorabilia" as the B side (which had been the A side of their second single). The A side appeared on their debut album, Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret. The two B sides did not but were added as bonus tracks when the album was re-released on CD. The single reached the #1 spot on the U.K. singles chart. It reached the #8 spot in the U.S. but not until 1982. The Leeds, England new wave band disbanded in 1984 but has gotten together again in recent years.
