And they manage to stay that way even though they are constantly admired, getting their egos fed, put under pressure and tested by their surroundings. Even though they have fans that are not always behaving nicely, they still have trust and faith and allow you to connect with them, they dare to open up and let you in.
Let’s take ”Tainted Love” as an example here. It was originally recorded by Gloria Jones in 1964. Soft Cell made it a hit song in 1981, and since then it has also been covered in all kinds of possible and impossible styles – by Scorpions, My Ruin, Coil, Shades Apart, The Living End and so on, and of course my favourite version by Marilyn Manson. A version I absolutely love.
