Tainted Love" is a song composed by Ed Cobb, formerly of American group the Four Preps, which was originally recorded by Gloria Jones in 1964. It attained worldwide fame after being covered and reworked by English synth-pop duo Soft Cell in 1981 and has since been covered by numerous groups and artists.

Soft Cell’s 1981 synth-pop hit Tainted Love is a remake of a 1964 Gloria Jones song. Jones’ song was a B-side to My Bad Boy’s Comin’ Home, a Motown single that flopped. Jones’ Tainted Love blew up in the UK’s Northern soul scene in the ’70s after British club DJ Richard Searling bought a used copy on a trip to the US. After Tainted Love got a boost from the Northern soul scene, Gloria Jones recorded a new version in 1974, but it failed to chart. When Soft Cell decided to give the song a go in 1981, they changed the key and slowed the tempo.
