The Diary of Jane – Chapter 9: Cover it up

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.
